Choosing Thankfulness

by adustyframe ~ March 20th, 2014

The past few days, I seem to be caught up in several situations that are less than pleasant. Grouchy people, people making sure that others always know about other’s sins (mistakes, failures, past…).

I have to be honest that it gets so wearisome and I think “What in the world is going on?” and “How did I get in the middle of this?” UGGGH!!!!

But then I think that it’s up to me. It’s up to me to carry their grouch around with me or not. It’s up to me whether or not I’ll treat them like they treat me (or my family members). It’s up to me whether or not I’ll go around pointing out their failures or not.

I think instead of carrying their grouch around and instead of being petty and nasty, I’ll focus on God and His great goodness to us.

Habbakuk 3:18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

    Reminds me of this statement:
    Thoughts fly into my head……I DO NOT have to build them a nest and invite them to stay…

    Awesome reminder! Some days it is tough to rise above and not to take things personally…

    Soar like an eagle!
