It is easy to get caught up in our daily routine and not really appreciate the blessings God has bestowed on our lives…
- We complain about our job, yet there are 7.8 million Americans unemployed .
- We complain about our weight, yet there are some 795 million people in the world that do not have enough food to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
- We complain that our home is too small, too old, needs repair, yet we forget there are over a half million people that are homeless in the U.S.
- Being a parent comes with added stress, but be grateful if your child is healthy, alive and drug free.
Regardless of your situation, there’s always someone experiencing more difficulties than you. Whenever I begin to feel overwhelmed, I’m reminded of the story called the Cross Room. This story always humbles me and makes me very thankful for the burdens I carry. God wants us to remember that He has a plan of each of us and to trust Him with the outcome.
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – I Thessalonians 5:16-18.
