Thursday Thought

Prayer is something that is really important to me. I know I have said it before, but I pray all the time, like all the time. Sometimes, I can't help but wonder if Heavenly Father ever gets tired of hearing from me.

Things have been a little crazy lately and I feel like I have been asking a lot in my prayers. I recently started to evaluate my prayers and I came to realize that maybe I haven't expressed as much gratitude in my prayers as I should be. I have been very blessed.

It's all too easy to focus on what you want, what you don't have and what's wrong in life. It's too easy to complain to Heavenly Father about how hard our lives are. It would be too easy if we asked Him to take our challenges away and He actually did it.

It's so much better to focus on the good, the positive and to be grateful for the opportunities and adventures that life has afforded us. It is through the ups and downs of life that we learn and grow and become the sons and daughters of God that He knows we can become.
