Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with THANKSGIVING let your requests be made known unto God.
Reinforce What You Are Thankful For
Sometimes I sit down and look around me and just make a mental note of all the things I have to be thankful for. Sometimes I am thankful that I didn't get something that I thought I wanted.
If we look at what others have that we don't have it can cause us to be envious and cause us to be unthankful. We need to take a closer look at what God has blessed us with. Sometimes I think it might be wise to make a written list and not just a mental note.
I am most thankful for Jesus and my salvation. That is a gift He gave me even though I am so undeserving of it. If you really think of it, if you know Jesus and have eternal life and forgiveness of your sins, everything else is just a bonus.
