I don’t think I thank God enough for His blessings. This morning, as I was eating breakfast, I looked at the nearly panoramic view of the outside from the breakfast table, and I thanked God that I had this house—it’s not fancy, it’s not gigantic—it’s comfortable.
My husband and I are camping for the next two days in a campground that is only a couple of miles from our home. It’s a blessing that we have such a beautiful area to camp that so close to our house.
There were times when I had wished for a bigger place, more money, or more things, but now I realize that I should have been thankful for what I had.
Philippians 4:19 says, “God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (ESV).
I have a new appreciation for the things that God has given me. Instead of looking at what I don’t have, I look at what I do have.
Thank you, God, for my family, my job, my home, and all the things you have given to me!
