Day 35: The Big Things
How many times do I miss it? How many times do I miss when the Lord provides for me and my family and I don't even thank him because I'm so accustomed to it? He has given us so much to be thankful for clothes on our backs, a roof over our head, a good job, food in our mouths, wonderful friends and family, a great church, and ultimately He gave us His son so we could have relationship with Him. My heart is overwhelmed today because of His provision. I never wonder if I won't be able to eat, or where I will sleep, or if I will be able to feed my children. I never do, but there are so many that do wonder those things.
My original idea was to title this post "The Simple Things" but isn't that just what the Lord was teaching me. That I take for granted the big things so much that I actually think there simple things. Give me a revelation Lord! Might I learn to not take the BIG things for granted!
Today I am grateful for the BIG things…food in my mouth, the roof over my head, the clothes on my back and the wonderful family and friends I have to share all those things with.
