Peace, love and thankfulness. I love this picture, I see peace and I am thankful for the life that God has given me.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body;and be ye thankful.
My thoughts this week include peace, love and thankfulness.
We all have struggles, difficulties and challenges. Right?
We think that we have more problems then everyone around us. Right?
Well that is wrong.
I believe that we make the mistake of allowing our struggles, our difficulties, our challenges, and certain circumstances dictate our happiness. When we make this mistake we are missing out on God's messages. Does that make sense?
God never said that one day we should be on "cloud nine" and the next day we should "be in the dumps." What God wants us to do is live consistently and enjoy every day of our lives.
So how do we live consistently?
We have peace, love and thankfulness.
One thing that I have been doing to help with my own self is reading a book called, Girl Code by Cara Alwill Leyba. A good friend added me to a book club and said that I needed to read this book. I am sure glad that she did. (Thank you, Terryn Drieling) I highly recommend it for everyone that needs a little push in the right direction. Reading this book has made me appreciate myself and my thoughts. It has also brought more peace, love and thankfulness to my soul. We all have a purpose and I aim to find mine.
I want you to help you find yours as well.
You know what else causes us to not have peace, love and thankfulness?
We focus on the what could happen. We focus on insecurities. We focus on what we see on the outside. We get focused on the negatives.
Well I am here to tell you this:
When tomorrow comes, God will provide. He will give us what we need, but we have to have peace, love and thankfulness to see it.
My ending thoughts are these:
I want to live my life in a way that I can have peace, love and thankfulness. I want you to also.
Happy Thanksgiving week to all of you.
I am very thankful for all of you that support me by reading my post. I love all your comments.
