On Sunday morning, I awakened still feeling groggy. So I jumped on my treadmill, hoping to stimulate my body and get moving. I wanted to go to church as I knew that would help me in my current emotional state.
How thankful I am that I pushed myself to go. Our pastor has been preaching for the last few months on the book of Colossians verse by verse. We are up to the 4th chapter verses 2-6. I had to laugh as Pastor Jason loves to interject examples and humor as he explains basic principles from God's Word. I found myself smiling and nodding.
There's something so amazing about praying, reading the Bible and singing praises to the Lord that energizes me and sets me in a better direction. Singing "through the storm He is Lord of all" from Hillsong's Cornerstone was just what I needed to be reminded of. By the end of the service, I was able to ...give thanks in all things. God is so good!
So I continue to count my every day blessings.
