There are a multitude of things that I have learned to do which required me to go through a process, during which I was consciously aware of every step. After mastering the basic tasks, I am able to do them subconsciously. One thing I am trying to become proficient at is keeping my thoughts continually centered on the Lord without being distracted. Doing this without interruption is something I have been attempting to do for many years and I still haven’t completely succeeded. However, I have learned one attitude that has brought me closer than ever and that is by attempting to live each moment in complete surrender to Him. By doing that I am able to maintain an attitude of gratefulness in every situation I experience. Any negative attitude or emotion that rises up within me is a simple reminder that I need to surrender to the Lord once again.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.”
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
