A Thought
If we focus our attention on all of our blessings rather than on what we would like to have we can have a change of attitude.  If you look at people who are always unhappy and always wanting more you will find they do not appreciate the blessings that they currently have.  They are wasting the life they have by not enjoying what they currently have.  A saying that also demonstrates this thinking,  "Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."  Always, thanking God for what we have!

 

A Prayer
Dear Father

Thank you for this day, for my family and friends that care about me, for all the blessings you have given to me.  Let me not focus on riches of this world but let me be grateful for what I have.

Let me always remember that all good in my life comes from you.  James 1:17 states:  "Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow."

Thank you for all that I have. Please let me live a life where I take nothing for granted and praise You for all you have done.

In Jesus name I pray.

Amen.
