"Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." (1 Thess. 5:16-18)
"Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord. Always give thanks to God the Father for everything." (Eph. 5:19-20 NIRV)
Your DESIRES: what you don't have to what you DO.
"The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!" (Matt. 6:22-23)
"Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, 'I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.'" (Heb. 13:5)
Your BLESSINGS: receiving to BEING.
"But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?' So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." (Luke 12:20-21)
"Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it." (Luke 17:33)
Your CONTROL: yourself to GOD.
"Be still and know that I am God." (Ps. 46:10 NIRV)
"That is why we never give up ... For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that...will last forever! So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever." (2 Cor. 4:16-18 NLT)
