Last week I embarked on a new journey with some new awesome sisters in Christ. What is this new journey, you may ask… I began participating in an online bible study through Proverbs 31 ministries. When I decided to do this particular bible study, I wasn’t sure how much I was going to be able to participate due to some medical issues I have been experiencing for the past several months. However, I decided to participate as much as I could to learn and grow as much as could. Last week as a part of Stressed less Living Blog Hop, I wrote a blog called Too Blessed to be stressed, this blog is a continuation of that blog,
That leads to me first blessing for this week. Even though the medical issues still exist, through the study of Stressed less Living by Tracie Miles, God is teaching me to change my focus. Instead of stressing over this medical issue, I am focusing on God and what He is saying to me right now. As a result of that and many prayers my condition is improving.
My second blessing is that this week I have written my first set of lesson plans. Even though this was a little stressful for me at first, I had to come up with lesson plans for four different age groups, I began to realize what an awesome opportunity I have been given. Next week, I have the opportunity to share with my students parts of my life story and show them that each of us is made unique on purpose. I am thankful to God for giving each of us our unique story.
Third, I feel richly blessed to have a job right now. I am especially thankful that God enables me to work five days a week. If I weren’t working I wouldn’t be able to help my family pay my current medical bills among other things.
My fourth blessing is an accepting family of faith. There have been times in my life when I have agonized over whether a group of people would accept me or not because I have to do things a little different. I am blessed to part of a family where my abilities are seen and I am continually given opportunities to serve.
My final blessing for this blog, is the children in my life. Although I don’t have any of my yet, God has blessed me by bringing children of varying ages into my life. I feel very humbled that God entrusts with each child by allowing me to be a part of each child’s life. One of things I love most about children is their honesty 🙂
It is my prayer that God continues to help me see the blessings and the stressing becomes less.
May God bless each of you
