At one time or another, we have all fallen into the trap of taking those closet and dearest to us for granted.
Be it family or friends. As we rush about our busy lives, doing this or that, we tend to forget to appreciate the people God has brought into our life to help and support us.
Below I collected a number of quotes that can inspire us to be more thankful.
Having a thankful spirit helps us not only appreciate ourselves but also all the abundant blessings God has given us like family and friends.
I know some of you who might be going through a difficult time in your life, be it sickness, poverty, depression, pain, loss, divorce, grief, heartache, stress etc and might be wondering what abundant blessings I'm talking about.
But if you take a minute to look around, you will find a lot to be thankful for.
You just have to develop the right senses, attitude and spirit.
I pray the quotes below will be just the right thing to help open your eyes to the beauty and blessings around you.
"Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it."
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."
“When I think of how many people in this world have it worse than I do, I realize just how blessed I really am and I have to give thanks.”
"To be grateful is to recognize the love of God in everything He has given us -- and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him."
“Whatever happens in your life, no matter how troubling things might seem, do not enter the neighborhood of despair. Even when all doors remain closed, God will open up a new path only for you. Be thankful!”
