Thinking Thanks

I am such a complainer. There, I said it. Really, I am hearing my own thoughts more and more these past few days and realizing how often I speak thoughts that are drenched in overtones of complaints. You might label it as being negative, but at the root of negativism is complaining. I'm thankful that the Lord is piercing my heart, and I confess to Him my ungratefulness. I thank Him that He alone can change my ungrateful heart.

I want my thinking to be thanking! When I think about how high grocery prices are or how much more expensive it is to eat healthier, I want to be thankful that I have such good food to eat. When I complain about how messy the house is, I want to thank God for blessing me with a home and a family to be messy with. When I whine about not wanting to do a task, I want to show gratitude that I have been entrusted with business to do.

I am praying that God will change me. I am thankful for resources to help along the way.
