The challenge this week is to show up to everything with an attitude of being thankful.
Thankful you get to go to school, thankful you get to go work, thankful you have people in your life who love you, thankful that today is a new day and another opportunity to get better and stronger, thankful that even though a lot of things may be going bad there is always something to be thankful for.
When we show up like this, we become agents of change. Many of us need to encounter others who are authentically thankful. They remind us of how much we have to be thankful for.
We have the opportunity everyday to share this joy and be a light for others.
May we serve well this week and be thankful for every opportunity, person and struggle we encounter.
Verse of the week:
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
