CHANGING YOUR ATTITUDE TO GRATITUDE


Thank you Father for your promises. Thank you brother Wes for this photo

It is so easy to cop an attitude….and I am using slang here.  But, really it is.  It goes back to the “me, me, me”, syndrome.  We can get opinionated, judgmental or even ungrateful.  And that is when, one has to stop, and do some checking out, some self-analyzing, and more than anything some praying.  First, for forgiveness.  Because God is so good.  It is easy to get into a slump, or a routine even, and then you just start taking things for granted.  I don’t want to take anything for granted.  Life, is funny.  Nothing is promised.  And life is precious.  I want to be the best I can be in my life.  But it begins, with who I am in God.  I know the difference.  From before God was in my life, and now.  And I am grateful, for my salvation.  I am so grateful, God did not let me self-destruct, in my own ways.  And even though, I am secure in my salvation.  I admit, myself, to having a few pity parties here and there, and one can ponder, on our mistakes, our misfortunes, our track record, our sins, etc.  But, if you have given your heart to Christ, something, does happen, he takes away your sins.  And he promises, he will not leave or forsake you, and he promises you something else, that you have a place in his Kingdom.  And then there are all his other promises in the Bible, that one can claim.  I have so much to be thankful for.  Because all I have to do is, go to Father, God.  My Lord, who is so merciful, good and kind to me.  And I feel like crying as I write this.  Because God is so good.  So when I see myself, like that, being ungrateful, I think, that is not right, and even today, I woke up, and said, I am not going to go to that place.  Of having an attitude.  I am going to purposely, try to change my attitude to gratitude.  I have so very much, to be thankful for.  Sure things are not perfect in my little world.  But I have a little family, who I love dearly.  And I have a home, a roof, over our heads.  We have food.  I may not have a job….And I want to do so much, but when I stop and look at me, and where I came from, I am thankful.  When I look at the possibilities, I am thankful.  I live in the United States, and with all of our political problems, etc.  We are still a great nation, under God.  And there is freedom.  Some people in other countries, cannot even worship, or speak about God.  But I can, you can too.  So, I am thankful.  I have my health, for the most part, though sometimes, my own choices, have caused a couple of lbs here, and there.  But, that can change.  See anything can happen or change, if you put your trust on God, in thankfulness, and start where you are at.  I just see, I am at a point, where I can either get negative, or positive.  And I want to be positive.  So, I am going to begin, making it a point to be thankful to God.  More so, and loving, and kind.  So with that said, I am thankful for you too.  Maybe, no one has told you this today.  But I love you, and so does God.  I am grateful.  Watching my words, to try and bless, I want to change, my behavior, my attitude to gratitude.

And so I add this, after I have already posted this….but to truly have a heart that is thankful, we need to be in a place where we are right with Christ.  I have a new friend, who just started a blog, (see her comment below)  and she wrote that the foundation is because we are saved, that is why we can be thankful….So, dear one, if you do not have that thankfulness, try God.  Give him a chance.  Below is my link, for the prayer of Salvation.  Today may be your day, to truly be thankful.  Pray it, and then write to me.

Blessings, Just My Thoughts….Elena Ramirez

THEREFORE, SINCE WE ARE RECEIVING A KINGDOM THAT CANNOT BE SHAKEN, LET US BE THANKFUL AND SO WORSHIP GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERANCE AND AWE, FOR OUR “GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE”…HEBREWS 12:28

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, forgive me.  I love you, and I am sorry, for my attitude sometimes being negative, and more then anything, not faithful, to believing your promises.  And so, I get ungrateful.  Forgive me, for I am so very thankful.  Help me, to change my heart to be more positive, more thankful.  For there is much to be thankful for, starting with my salvation.  And you, my family, and all my other blessings.  Too many to count.  Forgive me.  I love you Lord, thankful.  Let me show that, by being thankful.  In Jesus name,  Amen

  1. You’re most welcome sister Elena and thank you for today’s reminder to be grateful! A reminder we/I can never get enough of!!! Bless you, Wes

    • My thanks to you brother Wes, as well. And for the beautiful photos you have provided. I hope, I always say thank you, when you send them. And this computer lately, has a mind of its own, so sometimes, I wonder if e-mails get through. But I am thankful for the beautiful resources you have given and permitted me to use in my blog. So thank you, and thank you, for just who you are in Christ, your lessons, really enhance my readings daily. I am glad you are my brother (big brother, little brother?…Not sure :>) in Christ….Elena

  2. ” But, if you have given your heart to Christ, something, does happen, he takes away your sins. And he promises, he will not leave or forsake you,…” And that is the very foundation of our Joy and Thanksgiving and Gratitude!

    Thank you Elana for your warm welcome to my very first post.

    • Thanks dear heart, for responding to my blog as well. Many blessings, may God use you abundantly. You are so right, that is the foundation. God is good. Much love, in Christ, I pray much success, lets keep in touch.

      Elena
