The journal of Religion and health published a study this year that found those who are more grateful for who they are and what they have are more hopeful and also physically healthier. Gratitude is the ability to look at every situation and find reasons to be thankful. It is also the secret ingredient of a good attitude. When you adjust your attitude and increase your appreciation for everything and everyone that GOD has placed in your life, your new attitude tells GOD that your softened heart is ready to receive every good and perfect gift that HE wishes to bestow upon you. Reflecting on your past with a new attitude and gratefully enjoying the present guarantees a successful future.
