The only way to do this is to breathe in His grace and breathe out His PRAISE.
To give thanks.... even in the hard eucharisteo.
Read this from "God in the Moment."
"when my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back." (Ex. 33:22 NIV)
Is that it? When it gets dark, it's only because God has tucked me in a cleft of the rock and covered me, protected with His hand?
Biblical scholars have noted that the letters YHWH represent the sound of breathing — aspirated consonants.
The name of God - YHWH- is the sound of breathing itself ~

It's this counting that makes me refocus.... look for the good.... even in the bad.... ugly-beautiful.
The brave who focus on all things good and all things beautiful and all things true, even in the small, who give thanks for it and discover joy even in the here and now, they are the change agents who bring fullest light to all the world~ Ann Voskamp
