This is a Five-Minute Friday post. As most of you know, we write for five minutes, post it, and then link up on Kate’s blog here: http://fiveminutefriday.com/2017/06/29/count-your-blessings/ Today’s word is BLESSING.
Given that I have insomnia a lot lately, I’ve found that counting my blessings when I lay down has been a great thing. I say thank you to the Lord for whatever pops into my head, and in the morning, I’m surprised how fast I fell asleep! An attitude of gratefulness really seems to calm the mind and helps to center the brain on the positive. It’s not always easy to make yourself start, but once started it’s hard to stop. I really do have so much to be thankful for. Here we are at the end of the first half of the year already, ready to begin the latter half of 2017. Can you believe that? I lay there many nights thinking what a blessed woman I am. He’s brought me through so much and will always be faithful to be who He is. My God never changes even when I do. Whatever comes my way might be challenging, but the Lord never fails to guide and support me. That’s a blessing right there!
