Last night I was lying in bed thinking about the areas in my life that are not easy. Thinking about all the things I don’t have.
Suddenly I heard God say “Count your blessings”
but I was already in the middle of my pity party, the more you think about how bad life is, there are endless possibilities.
“STOP! Count your blessings” I heard again.
“Ok” I sighed.
“I have a great family” I said half-heartily
“Yes now keep going.”
“I have a book published”
Good, your getting there.
I…… live in Australia…
By now I was getting the hang of it and after about 10 more things, I slowly drifted off to sleep with a smile on my face.
Yes! I have so much to be grateful for, tragically I often forget that and complain to God about the things I don’t have.
So from now on I aim to be thankful for the blessings I do have and trust God for the rest.
