A 7-Day Challenge Guaranteed to Make You Smile

November 17, 2017 | gratitude, incourage | 0 comments

I could feel it coming on — an overwhelming sense of heart-pounding panic, difficulty breathing, dizziness.

There wasn’t any one thing that set me off, just a long train of emotional rail-cars carrying the cargo of daily demands, losses, and this impending feeling of doom in our world. I could hear the newscasters on the television in the living room. The day’s stories sounded like yesterday’s stories — and none of it was good.

Before the anxiety swept over me, I spoke the three words that have saved me again and again:

“Thank you, Lord.”

And then I kept saying those three words; it felt like I was calling down the power of heaven. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Lord. 

The words formed a defense in my mind, pushing back the panic.

In the last two years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to cultivate happiness in our lives. Nothing has been more effective than simply saying thanks.

The richest form of happiness always begins with the words: “Thank you.”

It begins by recognizing the gifts we’ve already been given, and then taking the time to be grateful for them.

I know firsthand how gratitude works. That's why I'm issuing a 7-day challenge, guaranteed to make you smile! This will be good medicine for our souls, friend.
