Thanksgiving was a few days ago and I read so many messages from people sharing what they were thankful for. I think it is sad though that Thanksgiving is the only time some stop to count their blessings.
It is so easy to get caught up in the details of life, careers, children, family, relationships, finances, etc that our vision becomes clouded and we can’t see the testimony in our test, the message in our mess, the blessing in our burdens, the sunshine in our struggles or the calm in our chaos.
I was guilty of this just Friday. Fresh out of giving thanks the day before, I woke up complaining to my husband about a situation we were going to encounter over the weekend.
The situation had not yet happened, but I was already complaining. I had already made up in my mind that the situation was a burden. Before I became too worked up and frustrated, I had to stop and challenge myself to see the blessing in the situation.
