“…so this is the thing for today:Instead of focusing on the hurdles ahead of you today,
Focus on Him beside you,
Instead of depending on your plans for the day,
depend on His power for this moment.
Instead of being tempted to give up, or give into fear,
give thanks — this gives Him glory.
Instead of trying to do it all
Simply let Him be your all.
The practice of giving thanks — the daily, intentional *practice* of thanks —
this is the way we practice the presence of God,
this is the way we stay present to His presence.
So maybe let’s exhale together and remember?
If you can breathe and murmur your thanks,
it’s still a mighty good day” (Ann Voskamp). #1000Gifts #ChooseJoy
The more I shift my attention from me to God, the better off I am. My problems don’t seem as big in the light of the grandness of God and my worries seem small in the ever present sufficiency of Christ. I can breathe a little easier and enjoy the moments instead of fretting away the hours. When I fix my gaze on God, it’s always a mighty good day.
