Gratitude For Our Time

Listen . . .

Think On This . . .

There never seems to be enough time.

But. 

It’s an individual choice to purposefully invest time. 

Yet.

It’s easy to waste time.

So.

What would happen if, there were only thirty days left to live?

What would you continue doing in the last thirty days of your life?

What would you change for the last thirty days of your life?  different?

Would you be grateful for the thirty days or complain about the lack of time?

While it might seem like a challenge . . . gratefulness . . . is a a gift of grace, changing our perspective and response to how time is invested.  Gratitude is a catalyst to propel us into living more in the power of God’s grace and less in our limitations. 

In the end, gratefulness is key to living our best in each and every moment of our time. 

The hard of life is often an obstacle to gratefulness.  seems down-right impossible; however, the Spirit of God will help us find our way.    

But.

Gratefulness is a soul-attitude rather than a response to our circumstances. 

And.

Gratefulness is a reflection of our connection with God.

When we’re grateful we connect with the presence of God . . . who cares about the details, orchestrating it all to come together for good . . . doing more than can be imagined.  When you get down to it . . . gratitude . . .  is about giving our attention and trust to God each and every day. 

So. 

Gratitude is a powerful catalyst to living our best. 

Live purposefully with gratefulness through the power of the Spirit. 

And.

Enjoy each and every. single. day. 

Breathe.  Slow down.  Give thanks.

The thing is . . . slowing down . . . is crucial for our health and well-being. 

And. 

Slowing down gives space for gratefulness.

Because. 

We can become so consumed with the stuff of life that we fail to be grateful.

How often is an opportunity to be grateful for something or someone missed?

It takes a conscious effort to be grateful every. single. day.

    Even now it sprouts and grows and matures.
    Don’t you perceive it?
    I will make a way in the wilderness
    and open up flowing streams in the desert” (Isaiah 43:19 (TPT)). 

“Look at the nations and watch—
  and be utterly amazed.
For I am going to do something in your days
    that you would not believe,
  even if you were told” (Habakkuk 1:5 (NIV)).
