Gratitude: The Secret Weapon

Simply Grateful

"There is no better opportunity to receive more than to be thankful for what you already have. Thanksgiving opens the windows of opportunity for ideas to flow your way." — Jim Rohn.

Where do I meet you today? Am I meeting you in Egypt, the wilderness, or in your promised land? Are you on your rainy day or sunny day, your summer, or your winter? You know it really does not matter where it is all called life.

And, because it is called life, we have no other responsibility but to be grateful. I know it does not make sense in some circumstances and situations. Yes, I agree with you, but does life have to make sense?

Whether it be freeflow or sacrifice, it does not make a difference. The important thing is that you never miss out on the one thing that puts the shine in life. The one thing that keeps the connection line with the very giver of life, our Creator.

You know we don't have to always understand. Maybe it is simply too much for our limited mind to grasp. Truth does not stop being true just because I do not understand. Truth is a constant, so our response to truth must be in accordance, constant.

Providence is always on our side for as long as we are on the side of truth. That is the surest way to have providence as an ally. And, the truth is we are ALWAYS a debtor in thanksgiving, irrespective of where we find ourselves today.

So, are you going to line up with providence, and offer your free-flowing or sacrifice of thanksgiving today, not tomorrow, but today, right now? You might not understand the hand of providence. Always trust the heart of providence.

You can never love yourself above the hands that formed you. And, never forget a living dog is far better than a dead lion. For as long as there is life, there is hope, there are possibilities in your today and future.

It does not matter what happened in your past, your history, or your yesterday. That is gone with the wind. It only came to prepare you for today. It came to set you up for the wondrous things in your today and tomorrow.

Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, nor has it entered into the heart of men that wondrous things providence has earmarked for you. Your key to releasing these is your faith, your trust, your belief, your hands outstretched to receive.

Will you receive it today? Will you give thanks? Will you receive with thanksgiving the today and future you desire? Providence is waiting. 

I can't wait to hear your testimony.
