I Have Been Blessed!

Man, it has been a long time since I've last blogged. A lot has been going on in my life, and to be quite honest, I am not even sure where to begin. You know it's so easy, well for me, I find it so easy to focus on what I don't have, then what God has put right in front of me. I find it easy to say, "I wish I had this" or "I envy you because...". I focus on what I want, rather than asking God, "God what would you have me to do?" or "God, how can I serve you today?" My mind is always going to the future...not like in tomorrow, but as in "where am I going to be in the fall? Here in North Carolina or away at college?" or  "What is Gods plan for me in the future? A husband, a family?" I'm always reminded that I shouldn't worry about tomorrow, but focus on what God has for me right now.

So what...what is that God has for me right now? He has blessed me with a great church, where I am able to use my talents that He has given me to serve Him. You know, If I was away at college right now, I wouldn't be able to play piano for Patch the Pirate club, or play Preludes, play for the nursing home, work in the nursery, help serve at Bailey's Grove Baptist School and so much more. It's so easy to get side easy...but when you can serve the Lord, man what a blessing. Sometimes I need to step back and regain my focus, and remind myself why did God make me? He made me, so I can serve Him, and be a light for Him, to glorify Him. Ha, how can I serve the Lord, when my eyes are on myself?

God has a perfect plan for my life and He already knows what lies ahead and I need to trust Him and rely on Him. He doesn't give me anything that I can't handle, and I have to remind myself of that. It's good to know that no matter what I go through, that the Lord is always there for me. Psalm 37:23-24 says,"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not utterly be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand." It's so good to know that God is with me no matter what I go through, where I am at, what I am doing, what I am going through!
