So Much to be Thankful for...

I wrote a blog about my struggling... then I read this blog about a little girl named Chrissie who is struggling for her life.  She had open heart surgery last week and has been fighting ever since.  It really puts things into perspective.  This wonderful family, though they are worried and sad, glorify God through every moment... the good and the bad. 

So, I struggle with anxiety... I have a LOT to be thankful for despite this struggle.  I have an amazing, perfectly healthy family.  I have all that I need and more.  I have a relationship with my wonderful creator!  Through that relationship, I have the ability to intercede for those who are in need. 

Lord, please help me to get my eyes off of myself and put them on You and others!  Help me to not focus on the things that I struggle with, but give them to You and move on and love those that you have put in my life!

I so agree that it does help at times to focus on the blessings of life (especially the health of our children) in the face of so many other families' suffering. Please don't feel guilty though for your struggles, as you didn't cause or choose them...though you can choose to be positive in the ways you handle them! God bless you.
