A friend of mine went to a spiritual counselor.
The counselor said,
“Can’t do anything for you. Too many blockages.”
What’s blocking your view of the sun in the sky?
What’s keeping you from seeing the absolute beauty in your love partner?
What’s reigning in your magnificent potential and your soaring dreams?
You need to dump the trash!
Thankfulness will not enter a cluttered life.
Not even if it’s cluttered with only good things.
“Think on things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honorable. … And the God who gives us peace will be with you,” says the Bible.
So where’s the God of peace,
When your mind is filled with the clutter of cares and responsibilities?
When life is nothing but action, and a series of rapid choices?
Too busy. or Too bitter. or Too burdened.
Oh dear, that’s not life.
You need to dump the trash
And let thankfulness in.
Just do it.
