Do you ever feel sorry for yourself? I do. Its so easy sometimes to sit and compare my circumstances to others. Having a family is more difficult for us. We pay thousands of dollars a year for medical bills, prescriptions and doctor’s visits. I could go on and on.
I don’t want to dwell on that stuff. It’s something I struggle with and I’m constantly trying to work on it.
I always want to be thankful for the many things God has blessed us with. I want to stop the comparing. We have so much to be thankful for. We have a family, we have our health, we have a house, we have clothes to wear, we have jobs. We have so, so much.
There are many people who have experienced much greater pain and trials than I could ever imagine. That is so true, I read about it and hear about it everyday. How can I be bitter when people I know and love are hurting so much deeper?
It can be so hard to see God’s plan for us. We have so many questions. I pray for contentment and reminders of His goodness to us. I pray for those who are struggling in life and I praise God for those who aren’t. God is so good!
I'm choosing to count my blessings!Proverbs 10:6 "Blessings crown the head of the righteous"
