I wrapped up a good workout and I sighed on the short drive home. As I pulled into my driveway, I was overwhelmed with a rush of reflections of abundant blessings in my life.
- kind words people might not realize had an impact
- a high mileage van that my ex refused to take but continued to run for me much longer than expected
- a dog who often got severe allergies a couple times a year but had been well
- the ability and commitment to give to the church despite financial uncertainties
- a new job in town that helped me avoid daily travel and afforded me time with family and friends
- a safe place to live
- deepening of many friendships and beginnings of many new ones
And truth – constant nourishment of truth. And the courage to reside in it.
No matter what is going on in your life, fight to know and dwell in truth. Determine to acknowledge the blessings in your life. Combine those two things: be truthful about your blessings. That means some of what you think is a blessing might not be, but things you don’t consider as blessings are.
