This is a typical seen in our home.
Messy house, pool hair, no makeup, and me working.
Today instead of focusing on the fact that I am glued to a computer all summer long I'm thanking God that I have a job I love.
I'm thanking God that I have a computer to be glued to.
I'm thanking God for the ability and talent He's given me.
I'm thanking God for His clear hand of direction in my life.
I'm thanking God for helping me prove the nay sayers wrong; I can have a career with an art degree. Not going to lie, that one kinda makes me smirk a little ;-)
All of these things have one thing in common; God. It's so clear to me that He's been paving the way in my life. Sometimes I fought if, and i'm sure there will be battles in the future; I'm human. But today, I'm thankful I'm not the one writing my story, my Creator is.
Maybe you're feeling defeated today. Perhaps the trials of this life are stealing your joy. I challenge you to count your blessings. Sit down and write out all the things you're thankful for. Recognize the Lord's hand in your life and thank Him. No doubt you'll have a brighter outlook on your day!
