Oftentimes, we allow ourselves to be submerged in feelings of depression, loneliness and dejection. how many times have we felt that all things tend to fall apart and that happiness seems to be a remote possibility? We worry most of the time. Unknowingly, we surrender ourselves to all the negativities we could possibly engage ourselves in.
We haven’t learned to APPRECIATE.
And what makes appreciation next to impossible???? Many things. Past hurts, personal tight spots, global crises, even other people’s predicaments. We absorb all these things that is probably why we look right through some things worthy of our sheer indebtedness.
When things have become so mundane and nothing exciting and out of the ordinary happens, boredom inhibits us to thank the Creator for the predictability that gives us some kind of assurance that life is not worthless after all.
There are so many things to thank for. I believe the list is as boundless as the love our Father has for each and everyone of us.
Sun may set and darkness may loom around us, but it’s guaranteed that the sun will shine again the
next day and its radiance will greet us once again. Rain may heavily pour, but after a while, Mr. Sun will beam once more. Problems may come, tears may fall, but after some time, we’ll hit upon the resolution and get a hold of our happiness and peace of mind.
Everyone is gifted with a lot of people who, beyond doubt, love, cherish and sincerely wish for our happiness. But unluckily, many times we have taken them for granted and have failed to notice all the things they do for us.
Our body is said to have the ability to heal itself. Despite all the trauma it has gone through, be it physical or in any other aspect, it has the knack to bounce back to its usual state. But this is only possible if we will help our bodies to make this happen.
These, among many others, are the reasons why we should extend our gratitude to The One Supreme Being who provided us more than we could ever ask for. He is the fountain of life and strength. Without Him, we’re nothing.
Take the conscious effort to relish all the simple things around us. Let’s take pleasure in each and every grace showered upon us. Our life is a blessing, we have to use it well. And for us to never go wrong, we have to offer all our actions and dealings to our Great Provider.
And one way of giving back all the glory, we should make it an everyday endeavor to be a blessing to everyone… not just to the people dear to us, but even to those people we meet barely through chance encounters.
