"Being thankful in the midst of hardship." Is that an oxymoron? Not at all. It's more of a matter of perspective. When we live in a society that is so self-seeking and self-absorbed with an unwavering belief of entitlement, being thankful does not come easy. That's why we need to count our blessings daily. When was the last time you thanked God for your sight? When was the last time you thanked God for the clean air you breathe? When was the last time you thanked God for even getting out of bed or waking up in the morning? Many will not wake up tomorrow. Many will lose their sight as well. Tomorrow is never promised and God does not owe us anything. So really, what are we entitled to?
Snippets are what pops in my head while having my daily quiet time with God. I write it down to maybe encourage, challenge or inspire others to read God's word. Please feel free to share your snippets as well. Enjoy and God bless!
