Blessings That I Didn't Even Know to Pray For

You guys. Jesus is just awesome. In my head, I know this to be to more than true. The evidence of His love and greatness is woven into every single moment and every single day. But sometimes my heart overlooks this knowledge. Sometimes I need a reminder to look at every moment, every smile, and even every tear as a blessing. His plan for me is greater than anything I could ever dream up or attempt to create on my own. There are plenty of things that I am actively thankful for. But I also know that there are literally millions of blessings, both little and gigantic, that I never took a single second to pray for, much less acknowledge. But lately it's just been hitting me that certain things have had a huge positive impact in my life that I never, ever expected. So here they are…
  1. My brother. Wow. This kid is my best friend and I miss him dearly when I’m away at school.
  2. The gift of peace for my academics/major.
  3. Singing. It was a gift to sing every single Friday and Sunday back in high school. Missing that has taught me how important singing is to my happiness and peace.
  4. My internet best friend. Mandy and I have been together in person four different times. That's it. Still, she is one of those friends that I hold so near and dear. It amazes me that our paths crossed even though we have lived such different lives thousands of miles apart. 
  5. My sorority Bible study every Monday night. I am so thankful I can count on this Bible study as a time of love, laughter, and so much growth.
