My Thankful Lesson 0

Long ago, I was down on my luck, like many. I was barely scraping by and quickly becoming negative on life. I just could not understand why things were not looking up for me, even as I prayed every day. Why wasn’t God answering my prayers? I needed Him and needed things to get by. As I was complaining to a dear friend of mine one day, she stopped me to ask me what it was that I was praying for and what I was grateful for. My honest answer, you ask? “I have nothing to be grateful for, I [&hellip
