“Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people.” (Luke 9:16 NIV)
When faced with an overwhelming lack of resources, Jesus did what he always did- he took what he had, looked up to heaven and gave thanks.
Instead of looking at what he needed,
He gave thanks for what he had.
Instead of looking around at the impossible situation,
He looked up to his Father who can do the impossible.
And he gave thanks.
I am always amazed that when Jesus was faced with the most difficult situations, he stopped and gave thanks to God.
Being thankful is one of those amazingly simple things that can change everything.
It can change your outlook and your attitude.
It can open your heart and makes room for the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace and more.
It is a game changer.
It is amazing how being thankful for something changes the way you see it.
And apparently, miracles like to follow thankful moments.
When we stop, give thanks for what we have and ask God to bless it, miracles happen.
May your day be filled with moments of thanksgiving, game changing miracles, and an entire new way to see your world.
