My One Word: Gratitude
In the last year, plans that I had for myself (that I put most of myself into preparing for) just didn’t turn out the way that I wanted them to. Additionally, I experienced the greatest financial struggle of my life to date. I obsessed over questioning “What am I doing wrong?” It hit me in my lowest moment that God has always taken care of me. He has put me where I was meant to be to do the work that He had planned for me. Looking back on my life I can see His purposes fulfilled. So I am making the mental switch to be ever grateful for his work in my life and I will strive to remember who it is that is really in control. In my relationships, I will be grateful as well. I realize that it is not enough to feel grateful. I can shine the light of God’s love by verbally expressing my gratitude and exemplifying it in my behaviors.
