Gratitude Challenge Day 14

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 14 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Gratitude is easy when we get our way. But then at times when we hit a roadblock in life, gratitude goes out the window. At times like this, it helps me to remember that I might not be where I want to be, but I can be thankful that I am not where I used to be. Whatever you might be facing today, can you trust God with the outcome? Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 13 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

86,400 seconds. That is what we get each and every day. It sounds like a lot of time. But it slips by so fast. That is why it is important to make the most of those 86,400 seconds. Love our families, spread light to those around us, and of practice gratitude.

One of my favorite quotes is: “God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?’” ~ William Arthur Ward

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the strong faith that Daniel had? Trouble was knocking on his door, and the first thing he did was give thanks to God. When trouble comes your way, do you immediately hand it over to God? Or do you live in fear and anxiety? Or do you run to your friends and complain about the problem?

Day 12

Gratitude Challenge Day 11

Good Morning, Everyone! As you might know, today is Veterans Day in the United States. One thing I am thankful for today is our veterans. I would like to take a moment to say “thank you” to all the veterans who have served our country. And I am proud to say that one of those veterans is my own father who served in the United States Army! So I would like to extend a special “thank you” to my father as well!

Today is also Day 11 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Gratitude Challenge Day 10

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 10 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away? This is one of America’s favorite holidays. Unfortunately, there is also some negativity surrounding it. In my book and in the video, I mention how the Black Friday sales can create fights at the stores. Another thing that might also put a damper on this day is conflicts within the family. This can make Thanksgiving feel more of a burden than a gift. As we prepare our homes and our kitchens for this day, try to keep in mind that while we might not be able to change everyone, we can change our own attitudes by practicing gratitude. And we can pray that this in turn will have an impact on those around us. Too often we let those around us bring us down. But we have to learn to be the light that brings other people up. We get to decide how we will feel. So today let’s choose to be happy. Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

Day 10

Gratitude Challenge Day 9

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 9 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

One thing I had to work on while learning to live with gratitude, was my own negative thoughts about myself. I was my own worst critic. This type of behavior can be very debilitating. So I knew I had to change my thoughts if I ever wanted to move forward. Do you participate in a lot of negative self-talk? Are you willing to change it today?

Gratitude Challenge Day 8

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 8 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

On day 8, I mention that first thing in the morning, my thoughts tended to go in a negative direction. But one day I thought to myself, “What if God took away all the things in my life that I didn’t appreciate it?” This helped turn my thought pattern around and I started thanking God for everything I could think of. What is your thought pattern first thing in the morning? Are you a morning person or a grumbler? If it’s the latter, how can you change it?

Gratitude Challenge Day 7

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 7 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

On Day 7, I talk about a difficult time in my life. We all go through difficult times. That is just part of life. Everyone’s difficulties look different. But if we try, perhaps we can still find something to be thankful for out of that situation. In Romans 8:28 it says that “…God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God…” This comes straight from the Word of God. But we might have to make a choice as to whether we are going to believe it or not. Faith means we have to trust God, even when we can’t understand why things are happening as they are.

Can you think of a time in your life that you would not like to repeat? Looking back on the situation, is there anything you can give thanks for now? Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

There have been countless studies showing how gratitude can improve both your physical health and your mental health. It is one thing to read about this. But it is completely different when you experience it for yourself, as I did. And you will too. Perhaps you already are starting to see the benefits? Over the past few days of this journey, have you felt happier when writing down things you were grateful for? Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 4 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Sometimes when we try to make a change in our lives, it is not as simple as snapping our fingers and then instantly everything will be better. At times we have to dig a little deeper to find any underlying roadblocks that are holding us back. And that is what today’s message is about. So take a moment to think about anything in your own life that might be holding you back.
