I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving! It is the time of year where we are supposed to count our blessings.
I thought I would share a few of my current blessings:
I am blessed with a great family!
I have plenty of friends that share my love for the Cyclones!
I have a job I don’t hate going to, where I work with several people I don’t want to punch in the face.
I have an amazing church family!
I have an amazing friends family!
I’m blessed to share my life with Naima!
This is really just a handful of the blessings in my life! But I’m already getting this out late, so I’ll cut if off here. I’ll just end with a passage from a Rob Bell NOOMA video that really spoke to me:
“So the verse in First Timothy, it says command those that are rich to not put their hope in wealth… and then it goes on and it continues… and it says, but to put their hope in God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
That phrase, a God that richly provides us with everything. All that we have is a gift.
Food. It is a gift.
That breath you just took. It’s a gift.
Now there are some that will say: No, you don’t understand. I’ve worked for what I have. I deserve it. It is mine. But like it says in the book of Deuteronomy, Chapter 8: You may say to yourself, my power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me. But remember the Lord your God, because it is God that gives you the ability to produce wealth.”
I thank God for the embarrassment of riches in my life!
