“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.”
Romans 12:1
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18

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.
