Being Grateful

When you look at others, and feel that they have more,
And in comparing, you sadly think that you are poor.
It is time to take a walk along the other side of the street.
Look around you, and really regard everyone that you meet.

You will see that it is not possessions that make us feel blessed.
Counting our blessings, being grateful, that makes us happy.
We need to learn that it is the sweet simple things in life
That make us happy, releasing praise, and erasing strife.

We cannot live our lives inward; we will surely take a fall.
Living life outside ourselves helps us listen for God’s call.
Doing things for others, opens our eyes to be able to see.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life allowing us to  really “be”

The person God wants, unlocking our hearts to love everyone.
God wants to use our lives as a testimony sharing His Son.

Proverbs 28:20   “A faithful man will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not
go unpunished.”
Proverbs 10:9   “A man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out.”

Matthew 6:33  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
