>Blessings

>Over the past two weeks my schedule has been crazy. From the moment I wake up to the moment my head hits the pillow (PTL for Day Planners)! Days filled with class, meetings, work, etc… I’m lucky if I find 5 minutes to sit and be still.

Up until about 3 minutes ago my mind has been racing and yes, I’ll admit it, slightly stressed (and beyond ready for Spring Break. Nine days- but who’s counting ).

As I was sipping my green tea and enjoying the “collegiate” atmosphere of the OU Library, the Lord reminded me how blessed I am. So often I fail to recognize that the Lord showers me with blessings.

In order to help myself refocus I decided to make a list of a few of the blessings I am grateful for, things I love and things that fill me with joy.

God’s love and grace
Family & Family Time
Friends
Health
Sunrises/the Sky
Positivity
Green Tea
Fellowship
Music
School
Bible
Goals
Freedom to Worship
Love
Mentors
Each new day (Life)
Traveling
Books
Photographs
A good workout
Smiles & Laughter
Bible Studies
Flowers
Accountability
Quality Time
Challenges
Creativity
Inspiration
Wisdom

Oh the list could go on forever…

What brings you joy and makes you happy? How are you blessed?

Praise the Lord for these gifts!

I pray that God will help me remember my list and help me to be grateful and give thanks constantly.

“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 
1 Thessalonians 5:18

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Philippians 4:6
