Here is a quote that is challenging me today. I confess to God that I have complained about my job, life, and other things. I struggle to move to thankfulness in order to reach adoration of my King.
“Try to live one entire day in utter thanksgiving. Balance every complaint with ten gratitudes, every criticism with ten compliments. When we practice gratitude, a time will come when we find ourselves say ‘not please, but thank you’ as Annie Dillard notes in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.” – Richard Foster, Prayer
