"Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” - Brian Tracy
When Matthew Henry, a bible commentator was robbed, that very night he prayed:
"I thank Thee, first, because I was never robbed before; second, because although they took my purse, they did not take my life; third, because although they took my all, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, and not I who robbed."
Are you thankful for everything in your life? Are you thankful for your hardships, disappointments, and unfulfilled expectations? Take a look at the following quotes and ponder over it.
“Even though we can't have all we want, we ought to be thankful we don't get what we deserve.”
“If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.” -Frank A. Clark
"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." - William Arthur Ward
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." - John F. Kennedy
"The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings." - Eric Hoffer
“Be thankful for hard times in your life. Try not to look at them as bad things, but as opportunities to grow and learn.”
Well, indeed, it is easy to be thankful for the good things in our lives, but not the difficult things. Nevertheless, difficulties are opportunities to better things; they are stepping stones to greater experience. Perhaps someday you will be thankful for some temporary failure in a particular direction.
Let's be thankful for everything in our life, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
