Grateful, Grateful.

Being grateful is something we choose to do every single hour in our every single day. In any situation, be it bad or good, we can always decide how we're going to respond DESPITE of our heart's condition.

When it's bad, surrender to God. When it's good, rejoice in His name. Keep relating back to God in whatever things we face and don't let Him out of the loop, because when He's present, you'll have a sure path to victory.

But then again, is it about winning/losing? How would you define your win-lose situation in life?

Following God isn't about that. It's about putting God at the centre of everything. Let everything revolves around Him, and He'll handle everything we can never control.

So I guess the simplest way to live life is by having the attitude of thanksgiving. Be thankful, be grateful, be happy with life, as it is. Just a random thought.

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

It's hard to be grateful still when bad things keep happening to you and you're totally clueless of the whys. But yeah, just try. Action first then feelings will follow. Shout out loud how thankful you are for your life and after a while you'll feel much, much, much better.
