080116 "Appreciate your blessings"

I hustle. Family, Two kids.. I Go hard all the time. I live my life consciously and try in most regards to act in a way that my heart truly is. But I am utterly fallible. I do not always truly live by what I say I need to live by. My relationships falter, I am not loving enough to my kids, I speak hurtfully, my intentions are not always pure. I am human.

What it takes is just a split second of realization or connecting with another person who sheds some light upon the world in front of me. Usually it doesn't take much as our blessings and our faults are simply in front of us we just sometimes do not see them clearly.

Today I challenge you to go about your day in a different way than usual. Today; along with eating and living a pure and healthy lifestyle; take a moment to appreciate the blessings that surround you. Open your eyes, ears and your heart to the world and what lives inside of you. Be thankful both in your thoughts but also in your actions, words and deeds. Help others who are not seeing clearly, also awaken to find the blessings in front of them. This power is simple but has the ability to change the world in which you live.

Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
