How often do we sit down and have ourselves a little pity party? How often do we focus all of our attention on the negativity in life? I say, it is all too often. There are always going to be people who are worse off than you and are praying for those blessings you've been given. We take for granted all we are given, until it is taken away. We always want more and never feel truly satisfied, like a kid in a toy store.
I think American's blessings can be compared with women's clothing sizes. I went to Target yesterday and the XS size was for who, an extra small whale? Well, that's what I thought. As an American, do you count your blessings as extra small and yet it is more than enough for you? Do you share that extra with others or stuff it in your own pants?
A lot of people don't like the word 'luck' because they want to give credit to the Giver of all things good and bad knowing there is His purpose in everything.
Uplifting others and being an encouragement can be the party crashers to your own pity party... invite that kind of thinking and action in. It'll do you good.
