How to be Thankful for What You Have
How to be thankful for what you have. In a world where nothing is enough and everything must be rush rush, taking time to slow down and be thankful is a sanity changer. Are you ready to accept a challenge?
Instead of letting our thoughts run away with us let’s choose to focus and control them by not letting destructive thoughts in and only allowing positive thoughts to fill our minds.
Speaking life and scripture over ourselves, husbands, children, marriages, family, friends, and ministry is a game changer.
Count Your Blessings Bible Verse
I believe the spoken word is important. Speaking blessings and scripture over ourselves is wonderful. The bible says Jesus is the Word. John 1:1 & 14.
There is power in our words! Read Proverbs 18:2.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
My challenge to you is to count your blessings today! That’s how you become thankful for what you have.
