Focus More On Being Thankful

What are your struggles? Do you focus more on those struggles than you do on being thankful?








When we are in the midst of a struggle, no matter how big or small, it is hard to be thankful. I would, however, like to encourage you to refocus your thoughts. Stop for a few minutes. Turn everything over to the Lord and just thank Him for ..... everything.




Philippians 4:12-13 NIV 




I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.




To be in need <--- migraines ( almost daily ), fibromyalgia pain, stomach issues, depression, anxiety
To have plenty <--- medication, ice packs, other treatments that are available for my issues








Am I focused more on my struggles than I am on the fact that God is giving me the strength to endure?
Am I giving thanks for all that He has helped me through?
Am I giving thanks for the things that He continues to help me through?




Prayer:




Dear Father, 




I pray that You will help me to focus more on You than on my struggles. Help me to remember that You are there and that You give me the strength that I need to endure. Father, thank You for all that You have done. In Jesus' name, Amen.
