Count your blessings. Yes, people….count your blessings. And I mean you, you and yes, you all the way over there. Even when it feels as though the whole world is against you, count your blessings.
On so many occasions, I have been beaten and disappointed that something has not happened the way I wanted it to, but in the grand scheme of things, I have found that God had intended it to be that way.
I am learning to just lean on Him and trust that He knows best.
I am learning to let go and let be.
To be thankful that I am doing whatever I am doing, and to allow God to lead me to wherever He has planned for me.
It is just too easy to cling on to things which are familiar to us, comforting even. But if we don’t allow ourselves to explore, to be curious, to step out of our (cliched) comfort zones, we will never know what there might be waiting for us.
It may be daunting, and scary, but it is worth it if God walks with us.
But if we remember Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”, I trust and know that we will be fine.
