The last couple of weeks have been quite interesting for me. I have received God’s blessings in many different ways. Also, I have discovered things about myself with the help of my friends. 1. My work responsibilites have finally shifted after a year of being persecuted by someone who does not appreciate a good, hard working employee. 2. We tend to project our fears and burdens upon others, when in fact, we need to cast these fears and burdens upon God. If we choose to practice this faith enlightening exercise, we would be more at peace and have more joy in our lives. Of course, it’s easier said than done. However, the first step is always self-awareness. So, when I made this discovery, I considered it a huge blessing! 3. With the season of Lent upon us for those who may practice specific religious rituals, the idea is to give up something that you really enjoy, or deny yourself of a pleasure. Instead of giving up something, I decided to add value to myself. So, I gave it some thought and decided to adopt a spirit of compassion. It’s been quite a challenge! Again, with the first step of self-awareness, I have begun to experience a shift in my thoughts, words, and resulting actions. I consider this to be another huge blessing in my life.
I continue to thank God for each and evey blessing in my life. I have also discovered that it may take years (sometimes) for us to recognize a blessing. At the time it occurred, it did not hit home until I had an opportunity to share my story with someone and then the light bulb went off! So, continue to give Him your thanks and praise for all your blessings!
Peace and blessings!
