A Plea for Grattitude

Apparently there was a memo that went out saying that today was going to be a crappy day. At least, that’s the conclusion I’ve come to after reading the status updates from a handful of my friends.  Everybody seems to want the day to be over, and I cannot figure out why.

Honestly I’m a little fed up with all the negativity I keep hearing.

I understand that bad days happen.  Believe me… I know.  There is a time to mourn, and I respect that.  What I do not respect, however, is the needless complaining I hear day after day.  We Americans (Christians in particular) have so much to be thankful for, and I think it is a slap in the face of our Creator to ignore His blessings day after day as we wallow in our self-pity.

In these rough economic times I dare say everybody who is reading this can count a handful of friends or family members who don’t have jobs right now.  Yet, the complaining doesn’t seem to end.

There are two blind men who live in my apartment building.  Every time I see them I am reminded to thank God for giving me eyes that see –even if I need glasses with a strong prescription.

As best as I can tell you have two options: you can change your circumstances or you can change your attitude.

  1. Good work! It’s so true. Even in the midst of trial and storm and pain we still have so very much to be thankful for – and a God that never ceases to be worthy of our gratitude and praise.
