Blessed.

I worked super hard on the new site design! I’d love it if you read this post on the website by clicking here.

Sometimes we need to take a step back and be thankful for all that God has done for us.

Today I heard my dad tell my mom to not worry about wasting because he found out that our insulin was free. Our insurance covers it.

Why am I telling you this? Because when I heard that I realized how incredibly blessed we are. How so many families struggle to get insulin and other basic needs for diabetics. How I need to be more thankful!

There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.

You’ve seen this on signs, Bibles, home decor, posters. For me, just looking at this phrase conjures up images of a wooden sign with a brush font. But despite how common or cliche this saying might be, it really is true.

There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for. Because even if somehow you’re in the worst situation even possible, you’re trapped in the darkness and you’re broken inside, God still loves you. And that is something to be thankful for!

“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV)

So today, I want you to take a look around you. At the food on your table, the roof over your head, and the clothes on your back. Because these are things that too many people don’t have. Be thankful, for you are blessed!

Thank you, Lord, for all of my blessings. Thank you for the little things. Thank you for the big things. Thank you, God, for running clean water and light and food and a home and a family. Thank you for all you do for me. Please help me to be thankful. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

(I’m ending my devotionals with prayer now, so you can follow along and pray with me or just read the prayer while you think about the devotional. What do you think?)

What do you think of the new design? The prayer at the end? What are you thankful for?

PS. Before you go, we’d love it if you would reblog or sign up to be an author! Don’t forget to send us your prayer requests, too!
