There were multiple times today in which I was ready to just throw in the towel.
Say NO MORE.
JUST LET ME RUN.
But every time, a still small voice stopped me.
I was pushed to remember the blessings in my life.
Even though I want to curl up on my bunk and cry my life away.
Even though I want to scream at those who have wronged me.
Even though I want to yell at the world about how life isn't fair.
Even though I am utterly and completely helpless.
I am counting my blessings.
And here they are.
I am redeemed by the blood of my risen Savior. No power of Hell or scheme of man can ever pluck me from His hand. I am saved and will be spending eternity in Heaven. The biggest blessing of my entire life.
I had a job this semester.
I have a job lined up for the summer.
I will have two jobs next semester.
If all continues as it has been, I will have four A's this semester.
I ate three meals today.
I have nine Bibles. Nine. Seven are in English (a mix of one or more of 4 different translations). Two are in Greek.
I have the freedom display each and every single one of my Bibles for all the world to see.
Everywhere I turn, I have friends.
I am in college.
I had a reason to smile today.
I laughed today. Quite a bit.
I have legs.
And they work.
My school bill is paid off.
I got lots of hugs today.
I got to help behind-the-scenes with a student play.
I have plans for Artist Series with one of the best society sisters ever.
I have clothing. Lots of it.
I will never be alone because I have Christ.
My roommates and I get along exceptionally well.
I have an amazing family that loves me with their whole hearts.
Even when I'm hurting, I have eternal joy from my amazing Savior to sustain me.
