Blessed

As humans, we have a tendency to take the things we are blessed with for granted, in more ways than one. It doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with us, or that we are bad people. We are all guilty of this and most of the time we get so caught up in our own lives and what is going now with “me” that we forget to think about those around us, those who we know and the strangers that we don’t know. We keep saying we’ll get in touch with the people who love us and care about us, but life, school, extracurriculars, and other commitments  get in the way. What we need to recognize however, is that we all have blessings in this life that others do not have. We all have family and friends that love us and want us to be happy and healthy and will do a nothing for us; there are people in this world that do not have that. We need to recognize that family and friends are blessings that God gave us. Our health is a blessing, and our ability to get a good education is also a blessing.

The fact is that we are surrounded by blessings every day and we sometimes don’t even realize it until were handed something that reminds us how blessed we truly are. Personally, I was raised in the mindset of “count your blessings because there is someone who has it worse than you” and that always resonated with me because you never know what the future holds, and the only one who knows what the future holds for all of us is God, because he created the world. I call you to think more about what you’re blessed with and count your blessings. We do need to ask God to give us an open heart to see the blessings in our life!
