Why did I wish away the days when I was a little one? Longing for the day when I’d turn sixteen, twenty-one…and then the dreaded 30 hit.
Now here I am writing a morning post on a blog, something unheard of when I turned 30.
Too often I get caught up in the daily work and forget to enjoy the process. I’m joyful to have a job outside the house for a few hours a day, especially because I’m working in the church and am surrounded by Christians. However, I let the busyness overshadow the absolute blessing of where God placed me.
So today, I plan to stop and give thanks throughout my workday. Because each moment, each breath is a gift God has given me.
Lifting my cup of tea and thanking God for placing the words in my heart each day to share with you. Will you pray with me?
Dear Father, You are a kind and loving, caring and compassionate God. Forgive me for not recognizing Your many gifts and for rushing through my day without stopping to thank You. I love You and ask You to fill my heart with Your presence today and every day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
