Just Be Thankful
(That was Then—This is Now)
It is so easy for one to overlook the little blessings that are received daily. Sometimes we have to focus in on the little gifts that God gives us, and just be thankful. We owed almost everyone. We owed the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker, so to speak. Previous medical and dental bills were still in litigation with the insurance companies. There even came a time when someone very close to me told me that my life had been going down hill ever since we came back to the United States. Since my family and I had been doing more in the name of the Lord, I guess the world thought that things were not looking good. It probably did look like that was the case. However, I knew it was the devil creating many of the problems we were having, and I also knew that if we waited on the Lord, He would show us the right pathway.
Our family had appeared very prosperous in Germany. We were active in church. We didn’t have to trust in God for much of anything because we could afford to get it ourselves. We had five sources of income and spent every bit of it. We lived ‘high on the hog.’ It was nothing for us to go out and drop 90 Marks (about $45) for a meal once or twice a week. We were always on the go and always doing something. We were blessed, but were we truly thankful? Sure, we gave God His ‘honorable mention,’ but were we really appreciative for what He allowed us to do? Did we acknowledge the fact that it was God who blessed us with each job that we had?
When that dear person caused all of these thoughts to come to my attention, I told the person to read the book of Job. When that same person told me that my life was not as prosperous now—I let tem know that my life was fuller today than it was then. I have a growing relationship with my Jesus, and, if I were to die today, I would not have any regrets. I am not just looking for that unhindered life everlasting—but I know that the God, whom I serve, will not leave me nor forsake me. I can’t, and I won’t, give up on God.
