At times we tend to grumble that what we are engaged in is perhaps not bringing in enough money, is not comfortable enough, is stressful, etc, etc…..

 

This morning as my neighbor was leaving for her place of work, she looked at me with envy as I stood on the veranda admiring the gray fog because of the way I am dressed. It’s soooooo cold in Murang’a, central Kenya this morning (14 C). I actually look like a Murang’a version of the Eskimos, as I have wrapped something akin to a blanket around myself. Without a care regarding my appearance as I work from the house, no intention of venturing out until 1 pm for lunchtime fellowship.

 

That made me realize how at time I complain about having to keep odd working hours writing stuff, this morning, for example, I was up at 3 am, and now i am thinking  of a short power nap.

 

My point, realize there are many who would give a finger to be where you are today! Appreciate what God has given you, for HE KNOWS WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOU.

 

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights” (James 1:17).

 

“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever.” (Psalm 136:1,2,3).

 

God is good always and forever so let’s thank him again and again and again!!!
