My mind can get overwhelmed with the busyness of life and I forget to look for the beauty around me.
I don’t what kind to get lost in that busyness.
So let’s pause and refocus on what is beautiful, lovely, good and all the many blessings within us, around us and in Him.
The thing about gratitude is it may not necessarily change our circumstances but it does something even more profound. It does an inner work in our souls and slowly changes our perspective. It molds our heart and minds so we can see things differently.
In this season of gratitude, let God mold our hearts and minds towards–remembrance. Remembering what He has done around you, in you and for you through His son.
