How would you like to live a more positive life? There's a secret that changes everything . . . something that will make you happier through grace, love, and humility. Join us to learn more...

How would you like to be more positive, gracious, loving, and humble?

Okay, most people wouldn’t readily admit to wanting to be more humble . . . but positive (happier), gracious (kind), and loving (big-hearted) are things that generally lead to a more enjoyable life. And honestly, humility does that too.

So, how would you like to have a more positive life?

Did you know that there is one thing that can help you bring each of those things into your life?


Yep. An attitude of gratitude can change your life and make it more enjoyable.

Psalm 92 was written as a song for the Sabbath. It begins with these words…

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
    to sing praises to the Most High.
It is good to proclaim Your unfailing love in the morning,
    Your faithfulness in the evening.

You thrill me, Lord, with all You have done for me!
    I sing for joy because of what You have done.
O Lord, what great works You do!
    And how deep are Your thoughts.

Psalm 92:1–2, 4–5

Just reading those words makes me smile.

Think about it—when you and I focus on our blessings. When we thankfully sing songs of praise with joy. When we’re thrilled with God’s goodness…

We naturally become happier, more gracious, and more loving. And when we remember that God is God and we are not; well, we will naturally live with greater humility, too.

I promise you that blessing counting with an attitude of gratitude makes life more fun!

I started intentionally counting my blessings over a decade ago. And although it doesn’t make the hard stuff disappear, it definitely puts it in perspective.

Try it! Start and end each day proclaiming God’s unfailing love and faithfulness. You’ll find that it’s easier to surrender your junk to God and trust Him to guide and help you through life one moment at a time.

You know, it takes humility to surrender our lives in faith and give control to the Lord. But when we do . . . He blesses us with an outpouring of His grace, mercy, and love. In fact, He gives us so much that we have enough to pour into the lives of the people around us.

And that’s a happier more positive life!

So are you ready to count your blessings with an attitude of gratitude? Are you ready to give God the thanks and praise He deserves? Are you ready to begin each day proclaiming His love and end it professing all the ways He was faithful? Are you ready to live a happier more positive life?


Let’s make a list and remember all the Lord has done. Let’s thank and praise Him for every big and small blessing and trust Him to give us everything we need each day.

Let’s pray…

    Good morning sweet Deb! Nothing makes the day sweeter than an attitude of gratitude and I am grateful that I know to be grateful!
    James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. I thank God that He has blessed me to know that having a heart, a mind, and a spirit of gratitude is one of His greatest gifts ever! I can never thank Him enough, praise Him enough, rejoice enough in all that being a child of God’s truly entails. My attitude of gratitude is profoundly, God! He is my all, my everything!
    Romans 11:36
    For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen.
    Psalms 139:17 How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18) If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.
    Proverbs 15: 15…but he that is of a merry heart (attitude of gratitude) hath a continual feast.

    1. Good Morning Dear Friend,
      Yes, I did get your note, and I can tell you it was so very appreciated. Yesterday when I replied to the blog, my computer told me it didn’t go through. So, I wrote anoter one as close to the first as I could remember. Not worded exactly. Imagine my surprise when I turned the computer back on last night ( I turn of my computer at around 4 each afternoon, but turned it back on at 9pm last night due to not being able to go to sleep) and saw that both had gone through. I also saw your sweet and thoughtful note. It warmed my heart to be thought of too. I know that you have your hands full with the situation with your father in law and the long distance y’all have to travel to take care of him. Rest assured that I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Safe travels and for good solutions that bring you peace of mind.
      I have missed hearing from you, but I do understand. I value your friendship and your support as well.
      I have a lot of grattitude for you. Hugs are wonderful and it is good to get those virtual hugs through this blog site. Love you bunches my sweet friend! I was glad to hear from you. I always am.
