Lately I have been struggling with life seeming too “normal.” I’m comfortable. Complacent. Drifting.
In frustration, I complained about my feelings to a friend, and she admitted to feeling the same way. We commiserated, half-heartedly encouraged, and went on our ways.
And this morning I was so convicted.
I woke up to sunshine (a first in a while- so. much. rain.), drove to the job I love, in my fantastic blessing of a car, and as I was driving… There was a nudge. A reminder to be thankful.
And so me and Jesus had a chat. Just me and Him, in my car, quiet. Me being thankful. Him reminding me of how blessed I am.
The best part?
I’m always here, you know. We can do this any time.
And I felt so silly. So inadequate to deserve the things He’s given me. Those boring times? They’re good for me too. And in the big picture, I’m just so blessed.
So here is my line in the sand: I’m blessed. That’s all there is to it.
In these quiet, hidden times when it’s easy to get frustrated with the status quo- I’m blessed.
It won’t always be like this, and something tells me that I might just look back and think that these were the days 🙂
