Gratitude


I had a really good day. I connected with awesome people. I had a fantastic counseling session though I will say my homework this time is really difficult and I have no idea how to actually do it or what it will look like. I go on vacation next week and I feel like what is going to happen is I am going to come back in two weeks and tell her it just cannot be done. Laura cannot do such a simple task. It is beyond her. Oddly enough though I know whatever she is asking me to do is supposed to be simple for someone who doesn’t struggle as much as me, it seems like an impossible feat to me! I have no idea where to begin.

I came home from counseling to a sign on my door that said someone had to call the fire department because there was a fire in my apartment and they had to put it out. I had a few things to clean up on account of it, but I was so instantly filled with gratitude. I leave a pot on the stove on high and come home to a home which is entirely in one piece. I was so grateful.

It made me think about things I didn’t deserve. It is so easy to say I deserve death on account of my sins, but I actually find the concept hard to grasp in my life and actually live out. I felt like this afternoon when I came home it was a perfect demonstration of getting what I didn’t deserve. What I did set up a situation for my entire house to burn down. What I returned to was a home that was safe and whole with only a few tiny scratches because a savior had intervened. How couldn’t I be thankful for that?

Now I am off to bed. So grateful that He is so amazing!

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. – Hebrews 4:14-16
