Happy Thanksgiving!

Do you want great things to be attracted to you? I sure do!

Here’s a new video for you. I love the hymn, “For The Beauty Of The Earth”. It is an entire hymn of gratefulness. 

Plato said, “A grateful mind is a great mind which eventually attracts to itself great things.”

People don’t realize that a gratitude attitude dates back to almost 500 BC! Gratitude has been around a long time. Do we take advantage of having a gratitude attitude? 

In the Bible we learn that “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” 

When we take a negative thought and change it to a positive thought instead, we will see results that bless us. As you work to change your brain, by feeling grateful for 10 seconds it rewires how your brain operates. Being grateful changes your outlook. 

There are almost 2 million studies on gratitude alone and the influence it has in our life. Thankfulness is not a new subject. Have you developed the habit of a gratitude attitude yet? You will see positive results when you do.

When your prospective changes to gratitude it will bring you happiness. When God sees your thankfulness He blesses you to have more to be grateful for and it repeats over and over again. Try it! It works!

Instead of complaining, shift your thinking to being grateful instead. I know this is hard to do at first, but try one simple thankful thought. When you change your words, you change your life. Just simply practice this for a few minutes every day for 30 days. You will develop a new habit. That is all it takes to set your new routine. Write down what you’re grateful for each morning during your prayer time. List 3-5 things in a journal and reflect on them for 10 seconds.
