Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves.

In the stories of Jesus feeding the four and five thousands we see Him bless what He has and then give it to others for their benefit. From the outside it does not seem enough to feed anyone. But because of His sincere thanksgiving and strong faith and complete ignoring of the negative possibilities He blesses multitudes!

It seems at times that we do not have enough time, money or space (room to do more). Our economy struggles on local and global scales. Our children are involved in more activities than we have gas to drive them. Their social calendars rival those of the most professional of socialites. Many of us have friends that are completely dependent on relaxation meds! But we have to make room for thanksgiving!
The next time you are pressed for time, money or space do not allow your mind to focus on lack of. Instead give thanks for what you have. If, for example, you only have two minutes to get to a destination, on time, which is 30 minutes away. Do not allow your mind to rest on the negative possibilities. Rather, give thanks for the two minutes. Give thanks that time is not a constraint for God. That time and space are non-issues for Him. Give thanks that in two minutes you will take approximately 28 breaths and will blink your eyes at least 30 times. Give thanks that you will live two minutes of life that you never had before! Release all anxiety and then give the time back to God. 
Then let your thanksgiving turn into full blown praise! God you created this world with a polar diameter of some 8000 miles! You rolled out the grass like a green carpet and tacked it down with Snapdragons, Daisies and Hollyhocks! You piled up the hills with the palms of your hands and carved out the valleys with your index finger! You put the bark in the voice box of a dog! Cut gills in the sides of fish! Put protein in meat! Tang in salt! Heat in Pepper! And Calcium in Milk! Praise your Name, Power and Glory! Amen!
You’ll get to your destination just fine.
