Practice Gratitude During Hard Times

Gratitude and the strength to let go.

Some days, some weeks, heck, even months are bad.  When I'm in a rut, I remember the beauty that surrounds me EVERY DAY.  I practice gratitude for all that I have in life, even during the hard times.

I read the daily devotion from Jesus Calling every morning.  June 2nd begins with, "Relax in My healing, holy Presence.  Be still while I transform your heart and mind.  Let go of cares and worries so that you can receive My Peace.  Cease striving, and know that I am God."

It's time to stop the striving and live with intention.  The world is filled with distractions, attempting to steer me away from what really matters.  I will let go and focus on the present, it will pay off.  Finding my purpose and passions WILL eventually happen, probably when I least expect it.

Being open to where this journey takes me is necessary.  I’m saying YES to the things that feel right, even if they’re scary and uncertain.  Living my life to its fullest potential is the greatest gift I can give others.  

Gratitude is part of the process.
