Grateful Hearts.

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped, my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.”-Psalm 28:7


There are so very many situations in life where we will find it hard to be grateful for what we have.

We may feel we have lost so much that we cannot see what else has been left. We cannot see that what has been left is something wonderful that we had never been able to truly see before.

I know I’m often guilty of this.

So focused on what is gone, that I forget how lucky I am to have what is still here to stay.

Though, I have noticed that the more I choose to be grateful; the happier and more content I am.

The more downtrodden I am about what is gone, the more absolutely miserable that I am.

It has made me start to realize that many things that happen to us are out of our control, but how we react to them are totally up to us.

We get to choose today.

We can choose to be happy or downtrodden.

What is your choice?
