Scarcity is not something that only poor people feel, it’s something we all feel if we live even a moment without the Lord. It’s that nagging voice in us that says that no matter how much we get, we’re always behind, we need more time, we’re not healthy enough or we need more stuff. It all centers around the mistaken and life-draining belief that we don’t have enough. But friend, here’s some news for you: if you’re not happy when you have a little, don’t count on being happy when you have a lot.
No matter how much you have or don’t have, by practicing one thing — gratitude — you’ll have a deeper sense of fulfillment. Gratitude offers you the opportunity to attract miracles, opportunity and possibility; it’s all throughout the Scriptures and it’s the reason we gather in churches on Sunday mornings. Our lives give us a daily opportunity to say “thank you” to the Lord of life and to those He has placed around us. When we do that, we open ourselves up to a flood of good things. You see, a grateful person is a magnet for miracles! Isn’t that a great thought?
