The Power of Contentment
Here's another great article to look at about CONTENTMENT. We've talked about the power of thankfulness to change your circumstances, and even to change what's going on in your brain chemically! We've talked about smiling, and how choosing to rejoice even when things look grim can actually change the course of your emotions. You can bring light to your own life if you will trust God and choose to thank Him- no matter what's going on right now. Sometimes it hurts to give thanks, and smile, and sometimes it just feels hypocritical. But remember, God is always good, so He is always worthy of our thanks! The bad things that are going on in your life right now are not His doing, they are merely an opportunity for Him to do you good, if you will believe. If you can think of NOTHING to thank Him for, at least thank Him for Jesus. Thank Him that because of Jesus, your sins are wiped out, and a home is prepared for you in heaven.
Drop in on Ann Voskamp for some more ideas on thanksgiving.
So go have a look, I don't think I could have said it better myself.
Put on a smile, today is a great day!
