It’s easy to be discontented with our lives. Especially when you see how good other people have it.

In our rush to keep up with the Joneses, we forget just how much we have, both here, and awaiting us in eternity.

Whenever we find ourselves feeling less than appreciative about all the incredible blessings God has given us, it can be helpful to take a quick inventory of the things we can be thankful for.

There are thousands upon thousands of blogs and gurus out there trying to tell you to live in the moment.

They aren’t wrong. Maybe sometimes a bit misguided. But not entirely wrong.

Focusing on the moment is fine as long as we remember to live every moment in active appreciation of what God has given us and the things we’ve given ourselves through our God-given talents.

That’s right. You have done amazing things in this life, whether you know it or not. And it’s because of some special ability that God gave you.

So instead of living in discontent, live a life of appreciation. Every chance you get, let yourself feel thankful for even the smallest things in your life. Chances are you are surrounded by more blessings than you ever realized.
