I have seen many individuals that are negative and complain about everything. The weather, their family, the economy, the politicians, their job, their boss, the devil and even God. This negativity, murmuring, complaining and bickering eventually takes it toll and they get tired, look tired and just get worn out. Many diseases begin to take root in their bodies simply because they are placing toxins in it through all the negative complaining.
Gratitude and thanksgiving does the opposite. It refreshes, renews, energises, heals and restores you. From a natural point of view, smiling relaxes your facial muscles making you look younger and better each day. Frowning and complaining tenses up your facial muscles causing you to age in an instant. Therefore living each day with gratitude and a smile will make you look younger, fresher and better. Stop killing yourself through all the negativity of complaint and start refreshing yourself by being thankful each day.
SCRIPTURE READING: Psalms 37:1-5 Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring [it] to pass.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, my trust is in you. I feed on your goodness to grant me the desires of my heart in Jesus name amen.
