Dear God, let me have gratitude today. Let me give thanks for every gift that you deliver to me; even those that do not present themselves in a positive light.

When I am thwarted, let me give thanks for my poor choices from which you have spared me. When others achieve recognition while I do not, let me give thanks for the lesson in humility. When I am attacked, let me be grateful for the trials that strengthen me.

All that comes to me is a gift if I but see rightly.

Above all, let me give thanks today that I am not an accident, but an instrument with purpose. Let me seek it. Let me live it. Let me perform your work and give ecstatic thanks my life is thus arranged.

(Letter #1012)
