Training the Heart for 2015

This morning I reread something I need to remember every day. It’s from a September 2012 post that has helped shape the last three years of my life. 


I read this morning a quote from Hannah Whitall Smith. She argues that “the soul who gives thanks can find comfort in everything; the soul who complains can find comfort in nothing.”

I realize the truth of it, especially when she later writes this bold statement:

“There can be nothing in our lives that lacks in it somewhere a cause for thanksgiving, and no matter who or what may be the channel to convey it, everything contains for us a hidden blessing from God.” 

How different my days could be if I only believed that every moment has within it a cause for thanksgiving and a hidden blessing from God! 

Training the heart towards such truth–remembering it each and every day–changes everything.
