It is on these cold, rainy, winter days when our minds starts to wander to the things we wish we could be doing if the sun was only shining. Yet, when the sun is shining, it is rare that we actually do those spontaneous activities that we dreamt about. We need to make an effort to see the good in every situation that God places us in. Sometimes it may feel like we are the most lonely person, or least successful, or even the one God forgot about, but it is not true. There is always someone out there who has it worse than we do. God didn't put us on this earth to feel sorry for ourselves but to live each and every day to the fullest, with Him by our side. He has given us so much to be grateful for and it is only right that we thank Him with our hearts and our minds and our attitudes each and every day. In Psalm 31: 23-24 David tells us how we are to live when he says, "Oh, love the Lord, all you his saints! For the Lord preserves the faithful, and fully repays the proud person. Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord." "Walk in wisdom, redeeming the time." Colosians 4:5 "And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." Colosians 3:17
This day, whether it is cold and bitter outside or warm and bright, take a moment to thank God for placing your right where you are.
