I will praise You, because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made… Psalms 136:14
We are each created with special gifts and plans.
Often we get stuck in our circumstances by taking on what the world or others tell us. We choose to believe lies!
If we are in God’s Kingdom, then we are in this world but not of it. That trips us up because we see through our natural eyes and often let that be our mirror or our gauge that we measure ourselves by.
God wants us to see through our spiritual eyes and walk in His promises and believe what HE SAYS about us is true! As we walk in relationship with Him, we learn of His love and actually start to love ourselves, and others, in the process.
He has plans to prosper us and give us hope and a future! We have been set free from sin and death.
Celebrating the gifts God has given us and celebrating our life in Him, causes a shift from toxic emotions to life giving emotions like: peace, love, joy, hope, patience, kindness and so on.
When we focus on the good in life and CELEBRATE that, it expands!
Many 12 step groups call it: Making a gratitude list.
God says it this way:
through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise—dwell on these things. Phil 4:6-8
God loves us so much! He gave us a book of instruction! He is so awesome! He hooks us up if we just “do what it says”.
