The blessing is already in front of you.

“A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

power-withinWhy do we always look at what we don’t have instead of what we do have and being thankful for it? We are selfish people and always seem to want more. We think that we deserve more and forget to be grateful for the things that we have in front of us. We need to learn to see God‘s positive in what is going on. I know that I am not the only person in the world who has been guilty of this a tyme or two. The sad thing is that when we focus on what we don’t have we miss out on the real blessing that we have in front of us.

This sense of entitlement can hold us back from what God wants to do in our lives. He wants to free us and do so much more through us, but first we must learn to be grateful for the small things that HE has blessed us with. God is more interested in developing your character and HE wants to do something in you first. When God doesn’t give us what we want all the tyme, we don’t realize that it is for our best. Surrender your bad attitude and trust God that He has a better plan for your life. Too many Christians spend most of their tyme trying to get what they want instead of asking God what He wants. Don’t neglect to see what is in front of you right now!
