is blessed.

Blessed~ being given a great joy by God.

We all know how easy it is to slip into negativity and forget the many gifts the Lord gives us on a daily basis. Ever heard of “This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. -Psalm 118:24”? That’s right folks. Each and every day you wake up in the morning is a gift from above. We can get so caught up in all of society’s problems that we forget to be thankful for life! To be thankful for the beauty that surrounds us. Have you ever been woken up by yapping birds? It can make you cranky right? But what if you were to alter your thinking into.. what beautiful songs of joy those birds are singing! They are happy to be alive this morning: living, breathing, and singing. Why don’t we wake up and do the same? Wake up and sing songs of praise to the man that created you! To the man that gave you life! If you aren’t a good singer, like myself, and don’t feel comfortable doing such, don’t worry. Simply praying or talking to Him is just as appropriate. Take 5 minutes to say good morning and thank Him for whatever you currently feel grateful for. This morning, for example, I thanked the Lord for sunsets. I have been incredibly fortunate to grow up in Naples, FL and witness some pretty amazing sunsets right in my backyard. Some people have never seen the sun set over the water. Well, let me tell you guys, it’s pretty majestic.Image

So what will you thank God for today?

What are you grateful for?
