I’ll never forget heading to Africa when I was 17. I was flying by myself part of the way and meeting up with my team in the New Jersey airport. I remember being so nervous that I would not move to buy breakfast fearing I would miss my flight. Ha…
When our team arrived at the orphanage in Cameroon, Africa, we were greeted with happy smiles and grateful hearts. They were beyond thankful to us for making the journey and had prepared a wonderful authentic meal for us. We were thankful too.
God has a special way of sharing His blessings with us and helping realize how blessed we are. I grew so fond of my friends in Cameroon and cherish the memories we made. Walking through the village there, I saw how blessed this young American girl was.
I want to challenge you today to write down 10 blessings God has given you. Place those in your Bible and thank God for those every day. Someone once asked “If tomorrow you only had what you thanked God for today, what you would have?” Sometimes that surfaces on my soul and conviction hits my heart.
Lord Jesus, keep me true, help me stand.
For it is you, who holds my hand.
