I woke up on the wrong side of the bed the other day. It was one of those days where you're cursing the sun for even coming out. I was anything but grateful for that day - if anything, I was mad it existed. I struggle with this a lot. I'm somewhat pessimistic (or a realist, as I like to call it). I tend to overshadow my day with the bad and forget about the insanely glorious blessings God showers me with continuously despite my unworthiness.
Psalm 139: 13-18
I've decided that I have to start waking up thankful. Thankful for my wonderful husband (and that he puts up with all that he does). Thankful that I have a job and a way to get there. Thankful for the beautiful sky and the mystery behind it. Thankful for God's grace - because ..shoot.. I NEED that more than anything!
Do you struggle with this? Here's a book that I was recommended and plan on picking up soon, One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.
