Do you ever feel like life is passing you by, or worse – running right over the top of you?
When we focus on unpleasant circumstances or people, life can really bring us down. This perspective is a downward spiral, and not a place we want to dwell.
Author John Kralik was there, once. A long hike one day led him to an emotional crossroads; there he decided to devote the rest of his life to being thankful.
His life changed dramatically.
John began to write thank you notes to everyone he could think of. Not emails or texts, either. Taking the time to send a hand-written note really connected with the people. Pretty soon he was so aware of his blessings, there was no room for depression.
Colossians 3:15 says, “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.”
Consistently thanking others will enrich them, and you. Try it and see!
Lord, your Word is a love letter to us, and our gratitude to you is our thank you note. Help us to spread your Good News to all we come in contact with. Amen.
