I recently did a survey on Facebook and asked, "WHAT ARE 3 SMALL THINGS THAT YOU COULD DO NOW THAT WOULD MAKE A BIG POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE?"


The number TWO answer was...

"BE MORE GRATEFUL ABOUT THINGS". 

Here are a few of the responses...

 Come from a place of gratitude, no matter what happens


 express my gratitude more often


 give thanks for one thing daily


 not complain, and be more thankful


 quit complaining 


See God's hand in all things and be thankful

Being THANKFUL would be on my list too!

Thankfulness comes out of an awareness, an inner radar set to pick up blessings... big and small... a choice to notice what is so often overlooked! 

Being more grateful is also about positioning ourselves in a place where we can receive those blessings!  People don't fish in the Dead Sea because there are no fish! We fish in streams and ponds and lakes and oceans where fish survive and thrive!

Same with blessings...they abound in the stream of God's Living Water! In His presence and in His ways! 

 So,  jump in...jump into the blessing stream that is teaming with life! Live in a manner that is bound to SEE God's blessings! I love the idea of splashing around in this LIVING WATER and splashing it on a dry and thirsty world!

And set that inner blessings radar and start thanking God for all the blessings... big and small... that come your way!


God gave Israel a multiple choice test once...

He said...

I SET BEFORE YOU LIFE AND DEATH, BLESSINGS AND CURSINGS... CHOOSE LIFE!
Deut 30:19

Here is the test... 

a. life and blessings
b. death and cursings
c. choose "a"

THE RIGHT ANSWER IS "A"!

Thanks God... for giving us the answer to the test! Now, which will you choose! 


Remember that FACEBOOK survey? Next week let's talk about the number ONE answer!
