giving thanks is the answer to life

AND I quote Rich Mullins again...

and they say that one day Joshua
made the sun stand still in the sky
but I can't even keep these thoughts
of you from passing by
oh we are not as strong as we think we are...

Dear God, please help me. How can I stop thoughts of discontentment, regret over sin, and low self-image or egocentricity (whatever the heck those thoughts are)? Why am I so selfish? When will I stop comparing myself to them and focus on your will for my life? When will I have the peace to realize that my life is a beautiful gift from God and it doesn't have to measure up to what I perceive others' standards are?

In everything, give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Thanks, God. I didn't deserve to know that secret for success. Thank you.

I think, if I start physically listing God's gifts in my journal, it will renew my mind. Here I go!
