Motivational Monday

Gratitude is an attitude.  I love that saying.  When I say that to myself, it really sets the stage in my mind as to what I want to think upon and focus my attention on.

This weekend I was doing laundry.  The simplest of tasks.  As I was bending to the basket to grab the clothes and toss them into the washer I twisted just right to catch my lower back.  I felt it right away.

I knew that feeling from a few years ago when I tweaked my back by sleeping wrong.  At that time I can remember thinking what a blessing it is to have your health and a body that does not hurt.  So, when I tweaked my back again- a dread came over me, because it had debilitated me for a few weeks the last time.

I did only what I knew to do.  I prayed.  I asked the Lord to heal me, because I believe in His power to heal.  I spoke scripture over my body.  I focused on what I knew God could do and not the pain I was feeling at the time.  That day was a bit painful, I admit.  The following day was a little better.  This morning I did my workout with some friends that come over most every weekday.  I was not sure how much I would be able to do, but my back felt pretty good considering.  I am a little stiff, but overall I am so thankful that my loving God continues to help my back feel relieved more and more each day.

I am so grateful for my health.  I am grateful to friends that motivate me to workout most everyday.  I am grateful to know God and that He hears my cries and helps me.

What are you grateful for today?   Keep gratitude your focus today, I am going to.
