An Attitude of Gratitude ( Republished )

Published on 12/10/2013

No matter how many times I find myself in a sea of self pity I am reminded of how much I need to be grateful. It is very easy for me to take all that my lord and savior Jesus Christ has blessed me with for granted.

All I have to do is stop long enough to look back 17 years ago and feel the freedom from the many hangovers I used to wake up with and realize that it was not by my power but by His power that I was able to quit drinking cold TURKEY and NOT experience any withdrawals whatsoever.

Being a control freak makes it very difficult to admit that I was not in control of my life. I did make a lot of bad choices back then and I still make some today but I have an unfair advantage and I can call upon Him at any time and He guides me back onto the right road.

Some times I find it hard to have an attitude of gratitude when I believe I am making the right choices and things just turn out completely the opposite of the way I had planned them to. These are the most crucial times for me I can either feel defeated or I can look for something good to come out of this and accept that this was not the path I was to continue on.

A life based on honesty, integrity and the truth is not easy to accomplish in a world that is filled with false hope and lies. Many individuals, to get what they want, will use deceitful tactics to cheat his fellow man and never consider how that may destroy a life or a family. It is my utmost duty to see that I never become one of these individuals.

Like it says in the Bible you can have everything you desire in this world but is it worth losing your soul over. I may not have a lot from a worldly perspective but I do have more than I deserve thanks to Jesus Christ. I have a great family and great friends my health is good I have food to eat, a warm house and a warm bed to sleep in and much more. I surely need to work on my attitude of gratitude.

How is you Attitude of Gratitude today. What are you grateful for?
