Am I willing to change my attitude?
The most important prayer in the world is just two words long: “Thank you.” We wives need an attitude change. Griping goes out, gratitude comes in! Wouldn’t you rather be known as a thankful wife instead of a griping, grumbling, venting one? I would. So I went on a hunt to discover ways to grow in gratitude.
First, I wanted to grow in God Gratitude. I burned Psalm 92:1-2 into my mind and heart. “It is good to give thanks to the Lord and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to declare Your loving-kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night.” Before I got out of bed in the morning, I thanked God for His unfailing love to me. At night I thanked Him specifically for His faithfulness to me throughout that day. I got excited about thanking God every morning and night.
Second, I wanted to grow in Husband Gratitude. I bought myself a “Thankful Journal” and once a week I wrote what I was thankful for in this man I live with. As I wrote down my “thankfuls,” I was surprised how long the list grew. As my list grew, so did my heart of gratitude. My attitude changed. Yours can too!
