COUNTING MY BLESSINGS!
Hey ppl. today was a really busy day...almost stressful, I felt like screaming at work today, I had nine million things to do and five minutes to do them all in!!!! yes it was truly an experience! I was sooo tired and feeling frustrated when I got home, I slumped on my bed and tears started to roll down my eyes! I felt fed up! so I decided to pray! It is truly the best of remedies! as I cried to God for some relief I decided to plough through some YT videos, to take my mind off the day's events and I stumbled across a video of a lady who is going through the IVF process (for the benefit of those who are unfamiliar with the concept, its basically a procedure for getting pregnant through scientific help.) anywho, as I watched this video I was overwhelmed with empathy as I watched this beautiful woman cry bitterly as she expressed her desperation to get pregnant, she has tried all means and this was a last resort for her. I thought about her situation and my 'issues' seemed soooo insignificant! It got me thinking, we go through some much stuff and we feel so sorry for ourselves but we sometimes do not realise how blessed we really are! I am stressing because it was a hard day at work, some folk don't even have a job! even worse some are on the streets and they don't know where the next meal will come from! It really got me thinking! I must celebrate everyday! the bible says "in all things we must give thanks" and truer words have never been spoken! if I look around at my life and see all the good things God has done for me, I really have no reason to complain. I need to channel the energy I would use to complain into positive energy and use it to pray for those that are less fortunate than me. I want to challenge you. As you read this, next time you feel low or defeated, think of someone who is worse off and pray for them. We have too much to be grateful for, so it is time that we begin to count our blessings.
