My heart has been heavy lately with the stress of my uncertain future. In my last post, I wrote about home and how, in many ways, I have found a home where I am. But this home is starting to appear a lot more temporary than I had expected or even hoped. However, while this heaviness has led me to constantly pray for blessing, it has also allowed me to realize just how many blessings I already have.
It’s so easy to get caught up in what you want and forget about what you have. The pressure is always on to to keep going and keep getting “more.” While there’s nothing wrong with that because I believe where contentment starts growth stops, I also think it’s important to recognize how far you’ve come and the blessings that fill your life already. You don’t normally wish for more rain when the fields are wet and the rivers are full, so why do we wish for more blessings when they are already abundant in our life?
Maybe you need more than what you have. Maybe your needs/desires have changed, and what you have isn’t what’s right anymore. Whatever the reason for heaviness or an unsettled heart, I pray you don’t forget how far you come while you’re looking at how far you need to go. Blessings will come to you, you don’t go to them.
I am where I am and for that I am thankful.
