Thrilled to be writing among the beautiful Five Minute Friday community. This is where we write for just five minutes, on a word prompt. We don’t worry about perfection or making it just right, but rather allow the words to flow freely without over thinking. If you’ve never written for the Five Minute Friday, come join us. You will be glad you did!
Over this past year, I’ve been intentional at looking for the ways God has blessed my life. He is the Giver of good gifts, and I never want to take for granted all that has been given to me. I am learning not just to notice the big blessings, but mostly the smaller ones, those that I can so easily take for granted as they are often overlooked, lost among the day-to-day mundaneness of life. Sometimes my eyes turn away from faith and trust and choose to look upon fear, regret, pain, lack, worry and those things that would otherwise tell me that my life is anything but blessed.
Over the last several years, God has taken me on a journey where He has been teaching me to see beyond my present circumstances. I am reminded that when Peter took his eyes off of Jesus, that’s when the storm threatened to overtake Him.When Peter took his eyes off of Jesus, that's when the storm threatened to overtake him. #fmfparty Click To Tweet
I don’t want to lose sight of the Lord or His many blessings when the storms of life come — and they will come. Instead, I want to choose to fix my eyes on Jesus no matter the chaos that may be swirling around me. It’s only when I fix my eyes on Him that I will truly be able to see the blessings in my life. I want my eyes to be open to receive His blessing.I want my eyes to be open to receive His blessing. #fmfparty Click To Tweet
My life overflows with His blessing. Today I will slow down and open my eyes to see all the many ways God has blessed me.
How has God shown you His blessings in your life?
