As I was pondering life, our existence and the tremendous weight of unhappiness threatening to suffocate us, God challenged me. He challenged me with thankfulness. He challenged me to start thanking Him. I decided to accept His challenge and to start thanking Him. As soon as I started, I simply couldn’t stop. I lifted my eyes and saw the million things right outside my front door to thank Him for! I thanked Him for food, clothing, a house, a son, family, a warm bed, couches, chairs, tables, a ceiling, groceries, and so much more. I was amazed. I continued my thankfulness towards Him the next day and then the next and the next…
When I made my first essential oil nasal inhaler, I decided that it would be Thankfulness. As I inhaled the smell pouring from the tiny container, a sense of wonder overtook me—my respiratory system loved the aromas flooding it!
Every now and then I choose to become still to remember how suffocating my life had been. I was suffocating in my own negativity. The little inhaler of Thankfulness serves as a reminder every day to stop—thank Him—inhale—and exhale. We have a lot to be thankful for in every circumstance. May you too enjoy the experience of Thankfulness in Him.
