5 Things To Remember When It Seems God Has Forgotten About You

thankful woman It’s easy to begin feeling you are somehow lacking because you haven’t achieved the success or fortune of others, especially when we are constantly bombarded with stories about the rich and famous on reality shows, in magazines, and everyday life. These stories are everywhere and they all glamorize the luxury lifestyle. It can be easy to feel less blessed or  as if God has forgotten about you when you barely have enough to make ends meet. When you’re in a bad mood or going through a rough time, the last thing on your mind is about being thankful. However being able to give thanks when times are hard is important. The next time you’re feeling less than thankful, use these helpful tips to get back on track and start giving thanks:

Keep a Gratitude Journal

Reminding yourself what you have to be grateful for and recording your gratefulness each day helps to cement how thankful you are. It doesn’t matter how difficult your life is at the moment, there is always something to be thankful for, some shining light of gratitude.

It Could Be Worse

Whenever myself or my brothers didn’t want to eat our food, My mom would always say ” Be thankful for that food on your plate. There are people in this world who are starving with nothing to eat… Eating out of trash cans!”. I don’t know about you, but after hearing this suddenly, those veggies didn’t taste so bad. The same thing can apply to adult life. Think of how much worse it could be and suddenly you’re thankful for what you have. Be thankful for the blessings you do have in life. If you’re struggling with naming those blessings, it can be beneficial to go back to what you’ve written in your gratitude journal previously.

Do Good for Others

Helping others that are in need is a great way to help you feel thankful for the opportunities you have in life. Providing humanitarian efforts is a great morale booster and will bring positivity to your life.

You don’t “have” to. You “get” to

You get to wake up early for work. You get to make another sales call for your business. You get to work out today. You get to write an article. You get to make dinner for your family. You get to go to your son’s game. I think it’s important to remind yourself that the things you do each day are not burdens, they are opportunities. So often, the things we view as work are actually the reward.

You’re Alive For a Reason!

Enjoy the outside world. Soak up the world around you. Appreciate the air, the trees and the beautiful sun. If you’re having a long day, appreciating the smaller things in life. Being one with nature will humble you. While you may not be thankful, you should give thanks to God for blessing your life in a number of ways and for providing you with the vitals to keep on keeping on. You’re alive, and with that being said…. Things can get better! People with a strong sense of gratitude, love and appreciation don’t necessarily have more than others; they aren’t “more blessed” They simply recognize and see the potential in their lives. People who cultivate thankfulness are generally happier and healthier than people who don’t.

Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.

While love gets lost, a deep sorrow blends us and we get lonesome in the heart.

My pastor called me to pray for me everyday when I was unemployed. It meant the world to me. I want to be that person for you! I've been through tough times too, and only recently have been able to focus on the fact that God is up to something better for me! I hope you will remember that during this trial.

Christ,our wisdom PREACH ONE MORE FOR JESUS" How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not HEARD?and how shall they hear without a PREACHER? And how shall THEY PREACH, except they SENT..." Romans 10:14-15aGod yearns so much for the salvation of every soul here on earth including that your rowdy friend, that beggar you always throw some coins to and pass by, that so- called VILLAGE CHAMPION,that roommate who always bring different ladies every Friday night. We must not always expect the Paul of Tarsus experience to happen to everyone. God is saying to you today, HOW CAN THEY HEAR WITHOUT A PREACHER? CAN YOU BE GOD'S PREACHER FOR TODAY?Sometimes we have thousand and one reasons why we don't want to preach the Gospel of salvation, lets look at some of these excuses and how God has answered us.1. God, I am afraid and mentally weak. I can't go please? God is saying "Have I not commanded you, Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go" Joshua 1:92. But God what will I say to them, I have nothing in mind? God is WHISPERING to you today " Take no thought beforehand what you shall speak, neither do you premeditate, but whatsoever shall be GIVEN TO YOU IN THAT HOUR that speak ye, for it is not you that speak, but the HOLY GHOST" Mark 13:113. Please God am very shy! Oh please can you exempt me from evangelism? And Papa God is saying to you today " Do not be afraid of THEIR FACES for I am with you to deliver you, sayeth the LORD" Jeremiah 1:84. God what about if I preach your unadulterated word and nothing happens, won't I be ashamed\U0001f614? God says, " ...I will hasten my word to perform it" Jeremiah 1:12. He will work wonders only Believe.5. God as for this one forgive me, I am too young, am now in primary school I can't go and stand in front of grown men and women, I beg? And God is affectionately saying, " Do not say am a CHILD, but go to whomever I send you, and say whatever I tell you" Jeremiah 1:7Kings and Priests of God, we have no excuse not to preach the Gospel of Christ to everyone around and even those far from us, because is the only POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION Romans 1:16. I entreat you that you have a personal soul winning plan: it can be A - SOUL A- DAY, A SOUL A WEEK OR A SOUL A MONTH. Beloved, we have to make sure all the people around and far from us a saved, especially those around, because GOD EXPECTS US TO. IT IS A CHARGE TO KEEP WE HAVE, IS OUR GREAT COMMISSION. Win someone for Christ Today!Christ,our Wisdom..... Our year of spreading. Please share if you want the WHOLE WORLD TO BE SAVED. God bless you!
