I am Thankful and Grateful

Recently, I had a thought session.  I was wondering if I could be disappointed, dissatisfied; yet thankful and grateful all at the same time.  And, my conclusive answer is, Yes.  This is how…

First, I am very thankful and grateful to Word/God for life, health, and strength; and the ability and power to do what I must.  At the same time, I recognize the current state and situation that I find myself (which constantly changes).  Sometimes, that leads to frustration, dissatisfaction and disappointment; but, I work hard at NOT murmuring– instead I focus more on being prayerful.

I find that prayer/meditation and supplication, with thanksgiving (as the Bible mentions in Philippians 4:6) takes me outside of my problem and situation and allows me the space to breathe and think; and, in that space, I find peace. 

I’ve learned that it is ok to feel and work through your feelings, work through them and still maintain an attitude of gratefulness and thanksgiving.  The process allows me to “Be angry; yet sin not” because in the end, I’m still thankful and grateful.  It’s good to know that I don’t need to be hypocritical or fake in my walk with the Word.  If you are still working things out in your walk of faith, I encourage you to keep pressing, keep believing; keep being thankful and grateful. Selah.

Happy Holidays!

I was just watching a  Netflix show called The Social Dilemma.  It was talking about how many of the platforms, including browsers and search engines are designed to manipulate our behavior.  I kinda knew that, but… it was one of those pieces of knowledge that you just stick in the back of the brain– for future use.😏

Anyway, I wanted to test that theory, so I cut off my phone.  I did not put it on vibrate.  I did not put it on silent.  I did not put it in airplane mode.  I cut it off. 😳 When I say that it felt like I freed up a portion of my brain, Read More

How do you see yourself?

Comments are closed.

When you look in the mirror, or take a moment of reflection, how do you see “you”?

Do you like or dislike yourself? Are you good or are you bad? Are you a winner or a loser?
I don’t know too many people who actually ask themselves these questions every time they see their reflection or see themselves in the mirror; but should we? Should we take more mini-self evaluations to determine where we are?

 

Low self-esteem is a problem that I believe many people face. I also believe that having an opinion of yourself of being worthless is a hard nut to crack when trying to recover from a bad situation.  Read More
