Recognize your blessings

What are you doing with what has been given to you? Are you spending your day thinking oh poor me? Are you so consumed with what you don't have that you're not recognizing what you do have?

It is very easy to get self consumed in a world of give me more more more. But, sometimes we have to stand back and look at all of the things that we do have.

So I want to encourage you today to quit focusing on the negative. Look at the positive things in your life and start thanking God out loud for them. We are always telling other people to chin up and one amazing person they are, but when was the last time you told yourself that?

You are an amazing person! You are exactly who you are supposed to be. If there's areas in your life that you want to be better in, then strive for them. But don't get self consumed and all upset if things don't come about in a lickety-split manner.

When God tells us to learn self-control and patience he's not just speaking towards other people, he speaking about us having patience with our self also. You don't have to be so hard on yourself you know. You are an amazing person and you can do all things through Christ .

Take the pressure off of yourself being so perfect. Learn to enjoy the little steps. Because one day you'll look back at all of those steps will have already been taken. Enjoy the journey it's not just about the end result. It's about living each and every day to its fullest extent.
