When you find yourself in a predicament that appears to be hopeless, out of nowhere, the brick wall materializes. Then, since it is physically impossible to go through a brick wall–a stop sign constructs itself in your path. Suddenly, there are too many obstacles; therefore, you give up and turn back ……
Use gratitude to get through all of life’s trials, disappointments and dark corridors. Express gratitude and appreciation in all situations. The power of gratitude is so positive, that your outlook becomes a celebration– instantly. When you make gratitude the guiding force in your life, there are no obstacles, there are no dark corridors, and there are no tunnels.
Gratitude has been the driving force in my life for many years, for I have always expressed thankfulness for life’s gifts, rewards, and trials. The element of gratitude that I was reluctant to adopt was the celebration. I previously thought I was being hasty if I celebrated before my gifts materialized. At some point, I thought that maybe I was getting too many gifts in my life—but I have learned that, through gratitude I continuously attract good things; therefore, I proudly celebrate my value.
Celebrate your victories as you express gratitude—celebrating possession of the things that you wait for is the strongest testimony of faith. Create your gratitude journal, listing your desires as you think of them; start to enjoy the outcome—while you are still listing. The euphoric feeling that you create is real—you have just accepted your gift. That feeling is not going to go away—the universe is now processing your order.
Ask–in gratitude; believe–in gratitude; receive–in gratitude; the cycle is endless….
Blessings have no bounds. I have been blessed beyond my worth; my blessings have brought me into worthiness. (GDR/2009)
