It’s a word that means a catastrophe. Devastating. It conjures up feelings of loss and devastation. It brings to mind ill memories of loss, whether it be personal or as a nation such as 911.
We all can think of something that has been a disaster in our lives. Most recently we have all been faced with the disaster within our own borders. Houston and Florida with their hurricanes. Las Vegas with the shootings. Santa Rosa with the fires.
To look at it as a whole, it would appear we are living in a time of disaster. But have you ever thought about all the blessings that are going on at the same time?
I know in my own life I am living in a season of blessings, of God’s favor. Life could not be any better for me! You don’t open up the Tulsa World, The New York Times, or The Wall Street Journal to front page headlines reading about blessings.
Our society thrives on drama. Sensationslism. We would not get much media sales hearing the good stuff. How many babies were born today. How many people made money on the stock market today. How many random acts of kindness were performed today.
Let’s all take a moment today, and instead of dwelling on the disaster, let’s flip that coin, and let’s dwell on the blessings!
Look around you. They’re there. Let’s all be thankful for the blessings we have in our lives.
I want to thank you, my friends, family, and readers for taking a few moments out of your day to read my blog. I mainly do it for me. Because I’m a journalism major. I’ve loved to write. It’s my way of daily getting into God’s Word for a verse. It flows from me as naturally as breath itself because it’s my gift from God. I hope it’s a gift from God to you, too, to let you know that your loved by me and by God. There’s one blessing for you if you can’t find one on your own.
I love you!
Be strong and courageous do not be afraid or terrified because of them for the Lord your God goes with you he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31 6
