I woke up a bit grumpy today - aches and pains and general "blue" funk. I heard the birds singing and saw the sunshine streaming through my bedroom window. I stopped for a moment to give myself a chance to reflect and adjust my attitude. Praise God for the sound of the birds. Glory to God for the sunshine. Hallelujah, I am alive and God has a plan for my life today. Grumpiness fades as gratitude takes over. That gratitude attitude is transformational. I praise God out of obedience, even if I don't feel up to it. The Holy Spirit fills me with power to make that first offering of praise and to keep praising God, moment by moment, word after word, all through the day. Take a moment and thank God. Start small, maybe for a flower. Whatever situation you are in, thank God. That's worship in real life.
