Having a thankful attitude helps us to enjoy over everyday life in-spite of our difficulties. We can decide each morning to have a good attitude throughout the day. A good attitude makes the best out of anything in life. It is not easy to have a good attitude always but the more we need God, the more we experience His power in our lives. Being a positive person will always make us happy. The most common question asked is how to be thankful when things are not going well. We can be thankful if we believe “all things together work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). We need to know that God has a good plan for us, “for surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm” (Jeremiah 29:11).  

Complaining attitude makes God angry. We read in Old Testament the Israelites complained about their food, “If only we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we used to eat in Egypt for nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions and the garlic but now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at” (Numbers 11:4-6). God set in motion a wind that drove quail in from the sea. The people gathered and prepared the quail. “But while the meat was still between their teeth, before it was consumed, the anger of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD struck the people with a very great plague” (Numbers 11:33-34). There the people who craved food other than manna were buried.

God’s got a plan for each one of us individually. His plan for your friend is not the same as it is for you. Even before we were formed in our mother’s womb God knew us. “Your hands have made and fashioned me” (Psalm 119:73).We need to thank God because “He forgives our iniquities” (Psalm 103:3), “His love endures forever” (Psalm 139:1), “He is gracious and merciful” (Psalm 111:4). Also we need to think about our past blessing and thank God, (Psalm 75:1). “We need to know everything that God created is good, nothing is to be rejected, provided it is received with thanks giving” (1 Timothy 4:4). Whenever we give thanks to God “we need to give it with our whole heart” (Psalm 9:1). Finally we need to know that “In his book are written all the days that were formed for me” (Psalm 139:16), avoid being selfish and be joyful in the LORD.

TESTIMONIALS

MERCIFUL GOD

I came to your temple seeking your help,
With heart full of hurts and with bitterness overwhelmed,
With no strength in my bones, I reached at your gate,
You are a merciful God, who never shuns the lame.

With riches of your glory and love, you saved me from death,
Hands of scars lifted my life from the hell,
Cursed life was made new with your blessings and Holy Spirit,
In Jesus alone, I find my hope for living.

He will never turn his back from the one who seek him
Jesus is the morning star of those whose hope have become dim,
Take courage, take one step towards him in his name,
Look he will come running towards you, with love and grace

Bless the Lord, you who sinners made saint,
Proclaim his deeds all the days that you live,
For his love, what in return can we give,
Our life is the only best thing that we can give back to him.

OUR WORDS

The life which we have received with great toil,
We may lose it with our words spoken, within no time,
Let us guard our lips and recall his holy name in our mind.
And this hour of temptation will pass like cloud in the sky.

The relationship with God and our neighbor is so precious,
But we do not know,we can lose them only because of our words,
Let us mind our tongue and we will stand firm,
With balanced words, let us show them honour and love.

Silence is the strongest weapon in this world,
But this world perceives it as weak and low,
But Almighty God is the one who loves peace and love,
Let us remain silent and he will fight our war.

Let our mouth only speak about Jesus,
Let our mind always count his blessings.
Let our heart always feel his love and mercy,
All our life let us adore the one who Yahweh the Almighty.
