As I walked through the process of transitioning to a new state, I had a long list of prayers and things I needed God to do for my family and me.
One day as I was on my prayer walk, I felt the need to put my list away and to just thank God.
God needed me to take my focus off the things I lacked and to focus and remember all he had already done.
After going down the list of the
things God had already done.
in my life, I felt encouraged, and it made me believe that if he did it before, I don't have to worry because he can do it again.
That's the power of gratitude.
Gratitude helps us refocus on what we have instead of what we lack.
What are you thankful for? I encourage you to take some time and reflect on the ways God has blessed you. Take a day and don't ask God for anything but take the whole day (or week) and tell God thank you for what he's already done. And be specific -write it down if you need to but switch your focus because God deserves all the thank You’s & the praise.
