Pray: Dear God, there are so many blessings in our lives. Too often we overlook them and focus on the negative. So today we will make a point to look for all the good things in our lives. Help us to be alert and keep our eyes open to the goodness around us. Even when we are facing an issue, we will be diligent to look for the silver lining. Help us to see that life is not full of disappointments, but is overflowing with blessings. At times we turn small mishaps into more than what they really are. It can be so very easy to focus on difficulties and overlook the abundance of grace in our lives. We regret all the time we have wasted in the past, with eyes that focused on the negative. We want to change that and keep our hearts open to see all the beauty around us. And when troubles come our way, we simply have to remember who our God is. You make a way, where there is no way. You are a miracle worker. You keep your promises. No obstacle is too small for You to overcome. You are always working behind the scenes, even when it doesn’t seem like it from our limited view. And You are always working things out for our good. Help us to keep these truths in mind and help us to alter our perspectives, Lord. We want to honor you with our outlooks and our attitudes, today and every day. Thank you, Lord, for opening our eyes in a new way. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Practice Gratitude: What are you thankful for? I am thankful for all of the silver linings that God has put in our lives. I am thankful that our amazing God is a way maker, miracle worker, and promise keeper. I am thankful that even when it doesn’t seem like it or feel like it, GOD IS WORKING!
