Often times in life I feel insignificant, like a small fish in a big ocean.  So many times I want to throw my hands up and just quit because of that but God says to me, “No, there is somebody that needs to hear you.”  I love it when God reminds me that even though I am sick and the world sees that I can’t do much for them, I still have a purpose and I can do great big things for him.


Gratitude √…What are you grateful for?

Admittedly I have been a little down for a few days but I find the best way to bring myself up is to start thinking about what I am thankful for. Basically, I count my blessings. Today I am thankful that I do have a wonderful family that loves me. I am thankful for the beautiful spring day today, and I am thankful that Jesus loves me.

What are you grateful for?
