Practicing gratitudes is a tool I have loved for many years. The bible talks a bunch about the importance of being grateful.
We are pressing in to become MASTERS of Gratitude.
A Master at anything is someone who practices and practices the subject.
There is a law of Gratitude and to get the results you seek, it is absolutely necessary that you should observe this law. Gratitude encompasses love. Can’t have much gratitude or any without the emotion of love.
The enemy of our soul and his forces rely upon you giving up in your mind. He wants your dominant thoughts to be thoughts of unthankfulness and defeat. God is for you. God is such a good God. Remember, there is an entire host of angels just waiting to work in your behalf.
Personal greatness will never be revealed if GRATITUDE is always concealed. ~ Keith Craft
Overcoming Slothfulness with Discipline
“God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of love and power and DISCIPLINE.” II Tim 1:7 NASB
Jim Rohn says that there are two pains in life: the pain of DISCIPLINE – and the pain of REGRET. Discipline weighs ounces.
Regret weighs tons when we allow life to drift along unfulfilled. Join us in our Engaging Your Energy course where we work on creating the habit of discipline as we develop the muscle of gratefulness.
Success and Failure are Choices
Success begins when you decide you aren’t going to quit. Failure begins when you decide, “I can’t take it anymore.” A choice!
Our Gratitude Score is our Gift Score
(Adapted from Mary Kay Mueller) G - Gratefulness for the present. This is most likely our healthiest of all
emotions. It actually ranks above the status of emotions as it as our Pastor,
Keith Craft, says it is a positional attitude which we choose with our Spirit man.
I - Intentional Hope for the Future F - Forgiveness of the Past T - Trust moment by moment in a never-failing Heavenly Father. - Mary Kay defines Attitude Score as “The percentage of the time that one is
thinking positively versus negatively (unforgiving, ungrateful, and hopeless and I
would add – without trust.)
Who Do You Attract?
We seem to attract people of like GIFT scores as our own. Oh dear, we might think. But we are continually
raising our GIFT score. It is just like us.
Gratitudes – Begin to live right now “AS IF “what we are wanting to create is already here. Faith and Expectation through Gratitude are the fast route to living “AS IF”. As the Bible tells us, “We see the end in the beginning.”
Jesus in NT always seems to be saying…………I thank you Father. Jesus said I thank you before performing miracles versus after.
