"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
How did you wake up today? Did you wake up complaining that it is Monday? Did you wake up complaining because you have to go to work? Did you wake up dreading the day? Or did you wake up thanking God that you saw another day or that you have a job to go to?
Things may not be perfect for you today. You may have some "reason" to complain- we can all easily find something to complain about. There may be something about today that you dread. But what we have to be thankful for far outweighs what there is to complain about. Our lives should be one of thanksgiving and praise. When we live in such a way, the dread, the fear, the anxiety and the complaining will stop because we will realize that we have so much more to be thankful for than we have to complain about.
Check yourself today and take note and see what do you spend more of your time doing? Praising God and giving Him thanks? Or complaining about the things you should be thankful for?
Have a great day. Are you spending your day complaining or giving God thanks?
