Everyday Give Thanks. Thankfulness for what one has is the key to living a content live. This is not to say that you will alway be satisfied, but that if you focus on what you do not have you will loose site on what you do have.
I’ve heard and read about the power of giving thanks but, until you experience it you don’t really understand. Giving thanks keeps you focused on the great things in life.
Philippians 4:8: Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
When I take my walks in the evenings I looks at my neighborhood the ongoing construction, the sky as twilight approaches, and I focus on what I have, what has been enjoyable, wonderful, beautiful, the progress that Ive made, in my work, the relationships that I have the times spent with friends and acquaintances. And I feel blessed. I feel that i have had such wonderful experiences and meet people that have impacted my life and will always be in my memories. This simple thankfulness lifts my mental stress that a day will bring. It leaves me ready to engage with others, and to continue to impact the lives around me. It also relaxes my mind for sleep.
In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Yeshua the Messiah.
