Colossians 3:15-17 – And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
On a day full of things to be THANKFUL for, I am truly THANKFUL for life’s teaching moments and learning what is truly important. I know and have seen, and honestly have been one of those people who thought happiness came through the pursuit of power, possessions, and people and did not realize that real happiness is only found within. I am so THANKFUL on this Thanksgiving for an inner peace. (more…)
Contentment does not mean settling or giving up. It is about being appreciative and THANKFUL for the here and now. It’s about finding peace with what you have and what you don’t have. One of the biggest challenges in life is being satisfied with your present situation while striving for a greater future. Don’t get bogged down with the what ifs, the could have been, or the when this or that happens, but instead relish in the moment and appreciate it for all it’s worth. Right now is where you are meant to be and the peace you feel, the inner smile of gratitude, is God’s way of letting you know that just like yesterday took care of itself, so will tomorrow. Be THANKFUL for today and find contentment in knowing that now is a great place to be. Make it a mindset to grasp the moment and express THANKFULNESS in your current state. The more we learn to seize every opportunity, the less we’ll feel we’ve let opportunities escape us – Carpe Diem!
Lose not yourself in a far off time, seize the moment that is thine. ~ Friedrich Schiller
Today, I am most THANKFUL for the struggle. Through struggle I discovered that I am greater than imagined and the only limitations I have are those that I impose on myself. I am capable beyond measure and with obstacles, we gain experience and with experience, we build wisdom and wisdom translates into inner peace and greater understanding. For that I am most grateful and because of that, I hope to share my experiences and knowledge with as many as I can. Life is never promised to be without strife, turmoil, or rainy days. But it does promise to be adventurous, ever-changing, challenging and when seen properly, it can offer everything one desires and so much more. Today, I am thankful for the heartaches, downfalls, trials, and all things thought to be bad that have led to victory, growth, newfound awareness, and fortified my purpose in life!
What are you thankful for today and how has life’s challenges shaped you into the person you are now?
It’s Thankful Thursday!!! What are you thankful for today?
Did someone buy you lunch, open a door for you, tell you how nice you look? Being thankful comes in may forms, but sometimes we have to dig deep to find thankfulness in the toughest of situations. It’s about having an “Attitude of Gratitude!” Even when life has turned you upside down, caused you conflict and sadness, you have to find an inner peace… “Peace on Purpose.”
