The seemingly little things…

I looked back recently and found that I have taken so many things for granted because they are seemingly “normal”. And maybe this post is a wake up call for some of us…

  • You think breathing is normal? Ask the asthmatic patient
  • You think flying to your destination is normal? Some planes exploded on take-off; some crashed on landing
  • Walking on your two legs is not normal…ask the one who’s bed ridden
  • Eyes that can see? Hmm, I heard of one who went blind from the side effect of an injection that was to correct another sickness
  • You can afford your gas bills in this winter and that’s normal? No sir. Credit ran out on the gas card in my house yesterday and I only found out at 00:00. Thank God for electric heater.

All I’m saying is that those things that seem unimportant are actually a luxury from our Father in Heaven and He deserves all the thanks.

Food for thought:

Ecclesiastes 5:19 “Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.”

Life nugget:

Ephesians 5:20 “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”
