A number of years ago, many of us spent time in Bible studies where we all used the same "Good News" Bibles. Think about it:  the Bible is filled with GOOD NEWS! Unlike our 24-hour news cycle titled, "bad news"!

God has all the answers; like no one or nothing else! Here is one thing He knows we should be and do:  "No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."  (1 Thessalonians 5:16 (LAB)

"If you feel the world owes you something, brace yourself -- you'll never get reimbursed. Henry Ward Beecher said, 'A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.' The sky's never blue enough, the steak isn't cooked enough, the universe isn't good enough to deserve a human being like you.

"Pursue gratitude. The grateful heart is like a magnet, sweeping over the day, collecting reasons for gratitude. Thank you, God. Your lungs inhale and exhale 11,000 liters of air every day. Thank you, God. For the jam on the toast and the milk on the cereal and the blanket that calms us and the joke that soften us and the warm sun that reminds us of God's love. Gratitude leaves us looking at God and away from the dread. It does to anxiety what morning sun does to valley mist:  it burns it up!

"Thank you, God.
