I am blessed

Image0202 I haven’t posted anything for a while. Sorry about that. Right now, I have about 5 posts started, but none finished. There are so many things I am learning and want to say, but I just can’t seem to conclude any of them yet.

What I can say. I am truly blessed. Many of our friends have mentioned that we have a good life. We have had our share of struggles. When we were first married D didn’t have a job, and I had a long commute by train everyday, then we spent a few years on separate shifts…But through it all, we truly do have a good life. With Christmas approaching, I wanted to let everyone in a little secret. It’s all in your perception.

If I am a good person, do I deserve a nice house, a nice car, evenings out to dinner, and a good paying job? NOPE!

What about the basics…do I deserve food on the table, clothing, and a job, any job. NOPE!

Here’s the kicker! As sinners we do not deserve any of the provisions that God has given us.  Yet He provides for us everyday! God loves us, and we know it!

It’s so easy to get trapped in the “fairness” of life.

My God is a great God. He has given me my job, my money, my house, my husband, my son, my dog, my car my my MY…But it is all HIS.

Lord, help me to remember that it is all yours, and I am but a steward. Help me to seek Your will in all matters and thank You for every provision you give.

Thank you always.
