My family has been going through some trying times, and although I won’t name what those are, it’s been a challenge to keep stress from creeping up and clutching my spirit. The blessing in this is that it’s been a great learning lesson for my kid, as we’ve talked about letting our burdens go and letting God take control.
Last night he came to me saying he was stressed about this certain situation, and we talked about how big God is and how He’s always been faithful … so they’re is no reason to doubt that now. We prayed together, which lifted both our spirits. It was such a good bonding moment, and it allowed my child to see that we practice what we preach.
That was the most amazing blessing this week. Here are a few more:
* a friend called me to apply for a job, which could be the answer to our prayers.
* my son alerted me to some suspicious online behavior, which allowed me to call a parent to let them know their child was chatting with a stranger. This stranger was a predator. We were able to nip that in the bud to avoid any detrimental issues.
* I packed up my son’s backpack for school, and found most of the school supplies needed I already had at home, which means I didn’t have to go buy hardly any.
* I went through all the comments on Amazon about Facing Redemption, and left comments in reply to everyone who took time to leave a review. I left a response to most everyone, even the people who left a not so savory review. (I understand that not every book is for everyone – so I’m never offended) The blessing is that I read over 35 reviews from people who loved loved loved it and left such heartfelt kind words, which touched my heart. The 5-7 who left not so nice comments were still a blessing as they were still inspired to leave a review, and I still appreciated their time.
*I’m blessed to wake up each day breathing and well, to a family which is doing the same.
