Be Thankful

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

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

No matter what situation we face in life, there is always someone worse off than we are. Let's be grateful to God for all the blessings in our lives.

Take care and have a great weekend.

What Is Failure?

Failure doesn't mean you are a failure... does mean you haven't succeeded yet.

Failure doesn't mean you have accomplished nothing... does mean you have learned something.

Failure doesn't mean you have been a fool... does mean you had a lot of faith.

Failure doesn't mean you have been disgraced... does mean you were willing to try.

Failure doesn't mean you don't have it... does mean you have to do something in a different way.

Failure doesn't mean you are inferior... does mean you are not prefect.

Failure doesn't mean you've wasted your life... does mean you've a reason to start afresh.

Failure doesn't mean you should give up... does mean you should try harder.

Failure doesn't mean you'll never make it... does mean it will take a little longer.

Failure doesn't mean God has abandoned you.... does mean God has a better idea.
