Welcome to your Friday! I hope that you’ve had a great week so far. Here are some the blessings from this past week.
As you may know from yesterday’s post we lost our power for the second time in one week on Tuesday. You can read about what I learned from that experience here. I am very thankful that the lights came back on and that we have electricity in general. I’m thankful that tasks that used to take an entire day now only take a few hours from start to finish because of the electric appliances that have been invented.
2) Much Needed Reminders
Earlier this week I was tempted to start in on a self-pity party for the simple reason that God has called me on a different (slightly harder for me path) than that of some friends. Things that are very hard and scary for me seem to come a little easier to them and right now their life just seems easy. They go. they do. They’re done. While I on the other hand have to keep reminding myself that with what God has called me to do success doesn’t always happen just like that. Success is fought for. And it’s worth it. I was reminded just this morning in my devotional to stay where God has placed me and too keep pressing on. After all Their lives are very challenging too; just in different ways.
3) Putting Things to Practice
I’m very thankful that I am able to not only remember some of the different things that I have shared here but that I am also able to put them into practice. We have a very busy week coming up and as I was thinking about it I remembered two very important things: 1) I need to take care of myself. I need to remember to eat healthy and drink enough water and pay close attention to how I’m spending my free time (am I wasting it on things that will make me feel cruddy or am I using/ doing something that will encourage me and build me up mentally and spiritually?) I also need to remember that I am just one person and I can’t ever do it all. So I need to remember to be Mary and not Martha. Taking time for what is really important and skipping those things that aren’t.
What are some of the blessings that you have noticed in your life this past week? I’d love for you to share them in the comments below!
Until next time,
