Are you grateful today? Have you counted your blessings? Are you conscious of the good things happening around you and in your life? For they are many….
With the media broadcasting pictures of lack and despondency by people struggling with their finances, it’s extra important to remember our blessings to keep our perspective from sinking unnecessarily. And one of the most effective ways to stay on top of discouragement, despair and hopelessness, is to be grateful!
God is always sending supply our way, but we must be receptive to receiving it. Gratitude keeps the mental doors open to the supply of wisdom, insight, foresight and spiritual sight that God provides to meet our human needs.
Ingratitude slams the mental door on this supply and causes one to believe they lack, when they don’t lack at all. If they lack, it’s not supply that’s missing, but the right perspective that enables one to see supply.
Gratitude is an attitude. Carry it with you all day long! It will bless you and reveal bounty untold before your eyes that previously appeared elusive or nonexistent.
Give thanks and you’ll find even more to be thankful for.
Mary Baker Eddy wisely asked, “Are we really grateful for the good already received?” And then added, “Then we shall avail ourselves of the blessings we have, and thus be fitted to receive more.”
