2. Thank Him for what He shows you and write it down.

"To be grateful for the good things that happen in our lives is easy, but to be grateful for all of our lives—the good as well as the bad, the moments of sorrow, the success as well as the failures, the rewards as well as the rejections...that requires hard spiritual work."
