Seven blessings a day

I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.  Philippians 4:11

Being content isn't about having everything you want.  It's about your perspective!  Your attitude towards life is what will shape future blessings and circumstances.  Why would God give us things we desperately want if we can't be content and satisfied with the cards we are currently dealt?  Being joyous and grateful for the life you are currently living opens doors for God to move miraculously in your life.

This means even when things aren't going well.  You must be content and keep faith that things will get better.  Having steadfast hope in God proves to Him that no matter what, you believe He has the best intentions.  When things aren't exciting and you are anxious with anticipation for the future, be patient, be happy and take a minute to rejoice with the blessings you do have.

A great way to put things in perspective?  Well, read the news.  There is so much going on in the world.  I'm personally thankful that I was born in America to a wonderful family who has done a great job in shaping my character.  Also, write down seven things a day you're thankful for: the ability to walk, that you have a roof over your head, that you have a healthy family, that you are able to pay your rent or fly home for holidays, and so on.  Doing this has helped me tremendously find true happiness in my heart, while I might not have reached some goals or dreams I have set for myself.  I've learned to bloom where I am planted and God will take care of the rest! 

I felt this was an important post, given Easter is coming up on Sunday.  I'm thankful for so many things and am excited to see what God has in store for my future!  You should feel the same way about your own life! :)
