Psalm 138:1

I thank you, God, with all my heart.

Gratitude can change your life.

It’s the difference between having a positive outlook or a negative one.

When we start from a cynical viewpoint, guess what?

We’ll find lots of things to be cynical about!

When we start from a grateful viewpoint, we will find all kinds of things to be grateful about.

Believe me, I’m no poster child for this.

I’ve spent a good deal of my life whining and complaining about things instead of seeing all the blessings which abound.

I’ve tried in recent years to always wake up with thanksgiving on my lips.

The first thing I say before I get out of bed is: “Thank you, God, for another day. Thank you for another day of life.”

This seems to enliven me.

At the same time, I like to remember that Jesus said that when you lose your life you find your life (Matthew 16:25).

It’s not about me but about God and the greater good of all.

Allow the Spirit to lead you.

Make yourself at the disposal of the Great Compassion.

With each breath you are being sustained by the pure gift of life.

Thanks be to God.
