Receiving with Gratitude

IMG_9914 copy“The fact is, if we are not content with what we have, we will never be content with what we think we want. The key to joyous living is to embrace the will of God and to receive with gratitude the gifts He chooses to give us in each season of life.”

    Amen! Thank you for this reminder. Sometimes i have gotten at all 6’s & 7’s with what i can no longer do as i age…..but knowing God is in control and concentrating on what i can still do instead of what i can no longer do has been life changing i have found. Focusing on our Lord Jesus and having the attitude of the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. (Hebrews 12:2,3; 13:15) Plus as we grow older we have more time for prayer & listening to those that need a listening ear & caring heart. Thank you for sharing these thoughts.
