The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.
– William Blake harvest –
In life, there is always something to be thankful for. It’s easy to complain about how chaotic the world is and how people can be so evil towards one another, but complaining without action just doesn’t change anything. If we start to be thankful for everything we have, instead of what we do not have, we’ll start to appreciate our life on this earth more.
Simple things such as being able to walk, eat, see, hear – these are just some of the many gifts that were given to us so freely. Sometimes it’s just a matter of how we view things. We may hate our bosses at work, but guess what? We have a job. We may not like the leftovers we have in our fridge, but guess what? We have food.
We may hate the traffic every single day, but guess what? We still made it to our destination safe and sound. If we choose to look at the brighter side of life, we will discover the countless small things we sometimes take for granted but have so much value if we just take a closer look.
Perhaps, the reason why most of us find it difficult to be thankful is because we tend to identify a blessing as something we expect to be given to us. Something that we’ve been wanting for so long. If we don’t get what we want, we refuse to acknowledge what we already have.
We must realize that even the struggles, the emptiness, the failures, and the pain that we’re going through can be a blessing in disguise too! These difficulties will teach us what really matters most in life and encourages us to be the best version of ourselves.
living with God in heaven define blessed in its noun.
