"Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; give me life in Your ways." Psalm 119:37
I read this verse early this morning and thought it was very fitting for today...every day, really.
That is my prayer.
I try to stay focused on the important things.
As I thought about this month of blogging through each day and finding the gifts in each and every one of them, I realized that this very thing has been a gift.
You see, this month has held some very difficult days for me. Had it not been for the nudge from the Holy Spirit to keep up and follow through with what God placed on my heart to do on this blog, I would have allowed many days to go by without seeing and appreciating their gifts.
Each day is a blessing in one way or another.
I truly believe this.
The rough days still had a blessing in them. I just had to intentionally seek them out. I had to be looking for the good and letting the distractions fall to the wayside. I had to turn from the worthless.
God is so good that He gave me a plan and prepared my heart to seek out the good in each day this month knowing there would be days when the bad definitely outweighed the good.
For me and my good, He gave me a plan.
This month I have learned so much! I am more grateful and thankful for the little and big things in life...and everything inbetween.
Today's my actual birthday. I have received emails, texts, phone calls, and FB posts from family and friends (and friends who are like family) across 5 continents! 5!!! That is way cool! God has widened my world through my family and friends everywhere. They are my gift today. Each and everyone of them. I am me because of them. The blessings of friendship and love know no bounds.
This has been a wonderful journey this month. Bless you all for making the journey with me.
God has a plan for you, too. Follow Him and be blessed! You will not be disappointed.
