Honestly, it can be so easy to take things for granted and focus on the hard parts, not the blessings. I'm so guilty of this! It can be easy to complain and get frustrated when plans change for the day, instead of focusing on the good.
And you know what, dear princess? I'm not saying circumstances don't hurt. Your heart might be broken right now.
But here's the truth.
Even when things are falling apart, even when we don't have everything we want, even when everyone leaves...we are still blessed beyond what we can imagine.
Because His love is with us every day. His love overflows every part of our lives. And His love is the greatest blessing and gift we've ever been given.
Here's another whisper of hope for your evening:
"I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3)
He doesn't promise there won't be times of darkness. He doesn't promise there won't be hard times.
But He does promise treasures and hidden riches in the midst of them. Hidden blessings.
Will you search them out tonight?
Will you search for the blessing in your darkness tonight and rejoice in the fact that, even in pain, you are blessed?
Blessed because His love never leaves.
Blessed because His love never forsakes.
Blessed because His love is so undeserved but so incredible at the same time.
Praise You, Jesus, for blessing us beyond what we deserve. ♥
