It is impossible for faith and fear to coexist within us at that same time. Where one is, the other cannot be.
This is also true with gratitude and stress.
We cannot be thankful and stressed at the same time, this too is an impossibility.
This truth paints a harsh picture on our stressed out society. Everyone that I know deals with stress. I too find days that become filled with it. Stress is the little weed that gets into our hearts and destroys our peace, our joy and our happiness.
Gratitude nourishes our souls and reinvigorates our bodies.
Have you ever known a truly gracious person? Are they stressed? depressed? worn down? complainers? or are they always upbeat? happy? energized?
We have many things in this life to be grateful for. Especially those of us living with 1st world problems, yet too many are saddled by the stress caused by an ungracious heart.
If you want life to seem happier, more joyous and abundant, then STOP COMPLAINING and start truly looking at all the things we have to be grateful for.
As we learn to be a more gracious people we will see the stress in life cease, this will improve not only our lives personally, but every life we encounter.
Live life with true gratitude and see the power within yourself unleashed as the bondage of stress is broken.
