Expect Nothing, Appreciate Everything

Expect Nothing, Appreciate Everything

Reflect: Look back over the past week or month at some of your negative moments and difficult situations. Where was God in those times? Can you see God’s grace?

Reflect & Practice: Each day this week, try to keep a tally going of your positive and negative thoughts. What is the ratio in different relationships and activities? Do you need to work on increasing the positive? If so, put some intentional energy towards cultivating grateful thoughts.

Practice: This week, try to write your own psalm expressing your struggles honestly, offering your questions and requests to God, remembering how God has guided you in the past, and offering your trust in God by giving thanks.
