One of the ways to remain positive is to express gratitude.
Gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation. Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family. It's taking a moment to reflect on how blessed we are.
God is good, God is faithful, God is powerful, God is merciful, God is loving, God is God. Take time to thank God for what He has done in your life. Thank Him because you're alive and because you have something to eat; thank Him for your family; thank Him for the good times because they bring joy to your heart; and thank him for the not-so-good times because they make you stronger and help you be who you are today.
Paul tells us to "give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
So as we go about our lives today let's express our gratitude to God. We have so much to be thankful for.
