I wanted to just thank the Lord for blessings tonight. Am I having struggles? Yes of course, we all are in one way or another even if not tonight. But I am working on being more positive and thankful which can be very hard to do with my mental health issues. Thankfully, the Lord is helping me. So here is a list of blessings (and I am sure I could go on for hours, too)!

My husband surprising me
The way the Lord took someone like myself and totally changed me and still continues to do so until we go to be with Him in Heaven. Everything from what I used to say, think, watch, listen to, wear, even drugs and alcohol to wanting His will for my life, being sober, not smoking anymore, working on my anxiety and anger, not watching inappropriate things anymore such as shows or movies with immodesty or sin. Craving worship music instead of profanity-laced music. All of this He has been doing for over 10 years, praise God! ( I am still a wretched sinner in need of God’s grace and forgiveness, never perfect).

There is so much more I could say but I will leave it at that for now. I am truly blessed and I hope everyone thanks the Lord for their blessings as well.
It doesn’t mean life doesn’t get hard. It doesn’t mean we don’t lose loved ones or go through very painful and difficult trials… but it does mean God cares for us in all situations and we can realize our blessings and praise God despite these situations.
May the Lord fill everyone with peace, love, joy, wisdom, and thankfulness as He works in us until the day of completion when we are all united in Heaven. God bless you all.
