I prayed to God that He would make me a better Christian this year. I’ve always called myself a Christian but in which way was I? I was barely praying, barely trying to get involved at church. There are so many blessings that I am so thankful for. I’ve always wanted to inspire people and give them a sense of hope and peace. I’m not sure if this is what God has planned for me but as you read through my posts I hope you find something that will inspire you and maybe even motivate you.
I named this post The Many Blessings in Life because I was thinking about all God does for me. I’ve taken life for granted so many times. I don’t stop and think about all the little wonderful things that have happened in my life. I made a change this year and decided that everyday I would think about something I am grateful for and thank God for it. I’ve noticed that I have become a much happier person since then. I’ve become a much happier person because I have been grateful, thankful, and blessed. I hope that my appreciation for the life God has given me keeps on growing.
I’m not a perfect person, I am nowhere near being perfect but I know God has made me who I am and I am grateful for that. You have a choice everyday. A choice to be sad, happy, mad…whatever you want to be. I will tell you that when you wake up every morning and give thanks to God for all the blessings, for the gift of life, you’ll start seeing a positive change in yourself. You’ll start looking for the good as the days pass. You’ll forget about the negative things that keep holding you back. I’ve seen great days but I’ve also seen the bad days. I don’t have everything that I want, but thankfully God has given me everything that I need. I do not have a perfect life but I am blessed.
