Today was yet another day when I was reminded just how wonderfully blessed I am!
Today it rained. Rainy days are my absolute favourite! There is something about rain that makes my heart skip a beat and makes my day so much better!! But today I also got to hang out with a few of my favourite people! I got to spend some time with a few girls who have truly impacted my life in ways I cannot begin to explain. I also got to see my family for a little bit which is always a wonderful joy!! But today I was reminded of my blessings in the form of a blog post, as well as in the form of wonderful conversations.
These past two weeks or so have been really tough for me. Not because school is starting or whatever, but because I have been challenged in ways I didn’t expect at the moment. I thought I would be a little prepared for the things that would challenge me, but I wasn’t. Or at least not in the ways I thought I would be prepared. But I realized that God has me on this super awesome, super crazy life adventure and He will give me everything I need to get through the hard times. He has blessed me tremendously with a family that loves and supports me. Who have seen me on my super awesome days, and my not so awesome days yet loves me regardless. He has also blessed me with a wonderful community who is my family away from home. A place where I can go and just be the superly awkward person I am. He has blessed me with girls who have my back and challenge me. Who listen to my incessant rambling, and still talk to me. He has also blessed me with a Saviour who loves me so much he died for me! Oh how wonderful!!
You may be wondering how a simple blog post and some conversation invoked me to think about the many blessings I have in life and I’ll tell you. Today I read a blog post about family, and I was reminded about how my families, both my real family and my Chi Alpha family, have been such a wonderful blessing to me. Especially when I feel like my life is falling apart, they have been there to smack sense in to me and to also just show me love. I also had a conversation with a couple of my close girl friends and the fact that God sent His only son to die for us came in conversation, and I realized that even when things get difficult and I feel like my life is falling apart, I still have a Saviour who loves me regardless of my circumstance!!
Its just been one of those days when I just feel so wonderful and I feel so good about how my life is at the moment. I am happy with where my journey has taken me. I am happy for the bumps and curves. I am awaiting what comes next. I am blessed with the very best. I am loved so deeply by a wonderful Saviour, and God has blessed me so tremendously and He has given me everything and everyone I need in my life. He knows me far better than I know myself, and I know this because I didn’t think I was prepared for the hard times, but I know that as long as I walk this Earth God will always provide me with what I need more than anything!
