Look For Reasons To Celebrate
It’s that time of night again. That point I reach daily where the pain just finally wears me down. Something like electricity keeps running throughout both feet all the way up into my face. I’m tempted to throw a full blown pity party. To tell you how bad life is for me at this present moment. Then, God starts rearranging my perspective and straightens up my frown.
An estimated 100 million people are homeless worldwide. I thank God for the roof over my head. 1 in 5 households face an extreme food shortage. I thank God for plenty of groceries. Around 197.7 million are unemployed. I thank God for my current job and paycheck. Each year 12.7 million people discover they have cancer. So, far I’ve not been one of them. Each year 55.3 million people die, but I’m still blessed to be breathing.
My friends I could go on and on. I don’t know about you, but my volume of blessings has already risen. Sometimes it truly does take counting them one by one. I’m reminded once again just how much God has done and is doing for me. For sure, my cup runneth over with reasons to celebrate.
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:18)
