Gratitude Journal, Part 1
It is always a good idea for us to stop and think about the things we have to be grateful for. Not only is this a humbling experience, but it reminds us that God loves us enough to do for us what we don't deserve. This is the first post in what will probably be a series of "gratitude posts." As I list what I am grateful for, I would encourage each of you to do the same, and then thank God for these things.
1. Upcoming Small Groups
I am part of a young adult small group that meets on Thursday. Since the Coronavirus pandemic began, we have been meeting via Zoom and GoToMeeting. Because of the loosening of some restrictions by our Governor, we will be able to meet in person for the first time in almost two months this upcoming Thursday. I am grateful that we were able to meet through Zoom, but there is nothing like being able to fellowship with others in-person.
2. My Family's Safety
A relative of mine was recently in a bad car accident, and she came out unharmed. Her car was totaled, but she was not injured. Of course, the car is a loss, but her health and safety are more important. I am grateful that God did not allow that accident to be worse than it was, and that He protected her in the middle of that.
3. My Job
Because of my day job, I am classified as an "essential worker." My hours have been practically unaffected by this pandemic, and my income has been steady. While, in all honesty, I would like to have a better job than the one that I have, I am grateful that I have not lost any income during this pandemic. I am also grateful because my job allows me to work on schoolwork and this blog while I am at work.
These are three things that I am grateful for. What are yours? If you don't mind, comment below!
