Given you faith, earned your trust, given you life?
How often has God protected you from the enemy, from the troubles of life, and the world?
How often have you should have been somewhere and didn’t get to go or were late and found out something could have happened to you that didn’t?
How often have you been hurt and realized God was protecting you from others by them hurting you before it could get worse or allow more people to hurt you?
How often have you just looked at life and said ‘thank you Lord’, for it could be a lot worse than it is right now?
If you haven’t done this today, I want you, by the grace of God, to write and list the things, people, actions, and the life you’re grateful for. Tell God how thankful you are for his grace, for giving up his most prized possession on the cross for us, Jesus.
Make a list, Just 10 things you are grateful for.
I’m grateful for:
1. Love 2. Jesus Christ 3. Grace everyday 4. Salvation 5. Family 6. Friends 7. My dog, Daisy 8. Education 9. My past, for it makes me a better person. 10. Regrets, for they show me how far God has brought me and bring me closer to him and his grace everyday. For he has turned my regrets into grace, my pain into a testimony, and my life into a life lived for him. ♡
Today I took a Math Quiz. I went through to check all my questions before submission, and then rechecked. As I scrolled to the top to see my grade, I realized I had 1 question wrong. My entire mood began to change. A 9/10, with just 1 wrong number on a question my emotions went from high to low. I write this to say how often we allow the little things in life to upset us. We allow it to pile up in our minds until we explode. Because of 1 mistake my grade went from a potential 100, to a 90. This tiny mistake led me to being upset and putting my emotions on the throne instead of God. For a few short seconds I forgot who I was and who I serve. How often do we allow the little moments in life to affect us? To make us feel as if we are low or not good enough? They become our biggest insecurities and regrets, when instead they should become our biggest inspirations. Don’t allow something going wrong, that tiny little thing, distract you from the other achievements in your life. You’re still breathing, you’re still standing. A 9/10 is better than nothing. 9 is stronger than 1. So, remember all the wonderful things going on in your life are so much stronger than the negative.
