Regardless of what we think, how we feel, or where we are when nothing seems to go right . . . life . . . is to be lived with gratitude.

When we understand giving thanks is not to be focused on circumstances but on the Giver of life, we find a new level of peace. 

Yes.    Life can be downright difficult.  Sometimes we need to take a moment and be aware of the most basic personal gifts . . .

every breath . . .

each heart beat . . .

and the experience of Life itself. 

Gratitude is a a true key to living the best. 

Of course, a lack of gratitude can easily be explained by the reality of negative and dark circumstances.


When it comes down to it, ingratitude comes from self-absorption. Of course, all of us are susceptible to self-absorption at one time or another.   Self-absorption is an obstacle to the best opportunities.

The thing is . . . the simple act of giving thanks . . . is transforming.   Gratefulness is important for our health–body, mind, and soul, changing our perspective and ultimately how we manage the day, shifting our attention from self to God.

 Gratefulness, even for the most simple things, is powerful.

Psalms 100 explains we need to be in a continual standing ovation to God using the words, “Thank You.”

When we take the focus off self, focusing on God rather than our circumstances, giving thanks with a standing ovation, we’ve crossed the line and won the day.

  • Give a standing ovation to God.
  • Clap hard with full out gratefulness.
  • Use the words, “Thank you!”
