Thankful For Good Moments
My evening has been so much better than my entire day. There are many things that have still not changed with my health condition. However, one thing that has changed is my perspective. What I used to call just a bad day I now call blessed. Great brokenness helps you realize your blessings.
Earlier I ran up town to pick up something to eat. Someone asked me how I was doing. I simply responded “blessed.” I truly meant what I was saying. I was so happy I could hold my head up and pickup my own food. How I felt in that moment was so much better than I had felt all day. Those moments that feel like Hell make you so appreciative of the moments that are more like Heaven.
Truly, the rainy days make you so thankful for sunshine. It’s so easy to take for granted the good moments. In fact, you can easily mistake good moments for bad ones. Any moment you find reason to smile it’s a good moment. No, it’s actually a God moment. Because every good thing comes from God.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (James 1:17)
