Too Blessed?

As a teacher, I get asked a lot of questions by my students. One thing I have discovered is I can’t answer every question.

I can’t say why bad or good things happen. I am not God. All I know is He is in control and I have to trust Him.

Last Sunday during a prayer, it was said, “May we never be too blessed that we forget God.”

This hit me pretty hard.

I am very blessed. In every way. It is sometimes very scary to think about it all. To think about what can be taken away in the blink of an eye if God so chooses to let satan do that to me.

It reminds me of the movie God’s Not Dead. If you haven’t watched it, you should. But definitely watch this scene.

I may get dementia when I am older. I may not. I may get cancer. I may not. We cannot live our lives being scared of what might or might not happen. That isn’t how God wants us to live. Through anything that comes our way in this life, we have to show God’s joy in us.

I know with my whole being God is alive and well and working in my life. I see Him every day.

I see Him in the blessings He showers on me and those around me.

May I never become so blessed that I forget Him!
