key #1 to focusing on You – an attitude of gratitude

On the harder days, just getting up out of bed can be difficult for me.

Choosing to have an attitude of gratitude is the first key I have discovered to help me focus on God first.

  • Being grateful to wake up each morning
  • Able to breathe fresh air
  • Physically able to get up off the bed, get dressed, brush my teeth & hair, tie my shoes
  • Fresh food & water to eat & drink
  • Family & friends who love & support me
  • A cozy warm house to come home to & live in in the winter, cooler in the summer, dry in the rain
  • A job where I can help others
  • Regular access to books to help me study & learn
  • The ability to worship God freely at church

And add to this list that God is always with me, loving me, guiding me, even interceding for me when I can’t find the words?

I have a lot to be grateful for, each and every day.

Now some days, one of more off this list may not be like it is normally, but I have found that when I start my day thankful and expressing that gratitude towards the One who provides for me?

That starts my days off in the right direction!
