A man from the church came to cut our grass today. I felt bad for him when I got back from running errands and saw him still cutting, so I decided to help. I did some weed-eating, some cutting, and some spraying around the yard.

After I was finished, I came back in to take a shower and it hit me…I take being ABLE to do stuff like that for granted. Some people would love to be able to cut grass, go for a jog, or just get out of bed, and yet, I take it for granted every day.

It kind of puts things into perspective for me…

When I feel like I need to do something, but just don’t want to, I need to realize that it’s a blessing to be able to do it.

When frustrations come in ministry, I need to be thankful that God ALLOWS me to do His work.

When the alarm clock goes off and don’t want to get out of bed, I need to be thankful that I can.
