30 Days of Gratitude: Day 19

One thing I can share is there is peace in giving thanks, in creating an atmosphere of gratitude.

Join me Monday morning at 10 am, cst as I continue the “Thankful” series. Last week I shared about being thankful for rejection. Sometimes we get what we asked for at our own expense… which lends one to question how to be thankful for the problem.

30 Days of Gratitude: Day 14

Let’s be honest. You’re likely not to forget, but forgiveness is possible and highly encouraged. I know for many, this can be a process. But I encourage you to see the blessing even in the midst… Annnnd to also be honest with yourself.

Now, you don’t necessarily have to tell the person “thank you”. But thank God for the experience. I recently talked about something similar in Episode 6 of Morning Breakthrough with Koko: Be Thankful for What Was.

The reason you can be thankful for the experience is because (1) It taught you something, (2) It became (could be) the platform for your purpose, and (3) It showed you the how the hand/grace of God appeared in your life.

When you reach the point of true forgiveness, you don’t have to remind the person of what happened. You don’t have to always talk about it, bring it up in an argument or hang it over their heard. Over time, there’s a mental note to be thankful, more discerning, and even loving. Allow yourself time to heal, learn, and grow. Also, extend yourself a bit of grace… sometimes the person to be forgiven is self…

How true of a statement this is. Often when I’m in a blah mood, I start thanking God and yes, within minutes, I’m feeling much better with a new outlook on life.

10 am, CST, tomorrow. Tune in to the LIVE radio show as I share how and why to look at rejection from a more positive perspective so we’re not stuck in the mentality of coulda, woulda, shoulda..

30 Days of Gratitude: Day 10

Admittedly, I still have these moments… or thoughts rather. Can’t necessarily stop thoughts from coming, but you can control how long they last.

Two verses that always come to memory to keep me from going under:

1 Samuel 16:1 “The Lord said to Samuel, ‘How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way.'”

2 Corinthians 10:5 “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

The more time you commit to growing your relationship with God, the more equipped you become to combat the tricks of the enemy (including self). Something key to remember is what you have is all you need for the season you’re in. What’s gone or passed was for your previous season. So, yes, rejoice for what you have now because that’s what you need for your current season. Trust when it’s time to transition, Jehovah Jireh will keep providing all you need to fulfill your purpose.
