Part of our Soaring Technique that we are learning and practicing in the current Fabufit course is all about developing our gratitude muscles. Being grateful is so very important that it is a daily habit that just can’t be overlooked. It will bring you so very much joy.
In our soaring technique, we begin with listing our gratitudes that we are most thankful for as we think on the day before. Seven to ten is a good amount to list. Which one of these brings you the biggest smile?
Put a P by this one for Powerful.
Another really great thing I like to do is add in three Faith Gratitudes. These are things I am being grateful for that haven’t been seen yet. These you will put an F by for Faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Gratitude Streaming can be a fun tool for this journey. I learned of this concept from one of my students years and years ago. I believe she learned it from Mary Kay Mueller.
What is Gratitude Streaming
It is thinking one good happy, grateful thought after another. Our dominant thoughts create our attitude. How wonderful it is to face each day with an attitude of gratefulness. How ours hearts will rejoice if we might also instill this into our children and grandchildren.
It’s not too hard. Just begin thinking of one happy, grateful thought and write it or speak it. Then immediately think of another. See how many you can stream together. Sometimes gratitude is a sacrifice, because we may not always really wish to be thankful. God tells us to offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving.
“I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.” ~Psalm 116:7
“Without gratefulness, there is no greatness.” ~ Pastor Keith Craft
