Are We Thankful When We Are Down and Out?

Down and Out

When things seem impossible, when we are down to our very last. Can we still be thankful? Is there anything to be thankful for? How are our attitudes when we are down and out

Circumstances

We could have everything we need but still be desperate. There is food in the fridge, money in the bank, roof over our heads. But we still feel miserable. Why is this? Are we wallowing when we are down and out?

Could it be we have the wrong thinking? I read from Joyce Meyers Battlefield of the Mind every Sunday. In that book it speaks about how our thinking affects how we live. Then also Life Church Online

is speaking about our thoughts. I like Pastor Craig’s quote:

You cannot have a positive life when you have a negative mind. #lcmastermind
