It's far too easy to compare my life to another's. So instead of choosing discontentment, I will choose gratitude. Instead of wishing for something else, or plaguing my mind with the "if only" thoughts, I am taking the blessings that the Lord has so graciously given to me today and being content with it...joyful and thankful even! Instead of longing for a fun snow-filled day in the comforts of my home country, I will rejoice in the unique blessing of having a family S'mores Night in February while wearing flip-flops! Reminding myself that "the Lord is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Psalm 84:11. God is good and gives to each of us the gifts that He specifically picks out for us...tonight it was a S'mores Night for me and my family!
What blessing will you take hold of and enjoy today?
