For the last couple days, I can't help but well up (I'm a crier) when I think about my life.
Not because I think it sucks and I wish it would change but because I'm incredibly blessed. Would I like a few extra dollars in the bank as a cushion, of course, tell me someone you know who wouldn't.
Some people I know were talking about what we would do if we won the Mega-Millions. What would I do? Honestly, I'd live just the way I do today. I'd live in my same house, maybe get a different car, pay for college for Phyllis, buy a bus for Alive/Fuel, I mean a super cool bus. I'd donate my time. I would quit my job, but not for the reasons of most, because honestly, I love what I do. Not many people can say that, I'm blessed to like what I do and work with people I really love. I'd quit because times are tough, and someone else would need that job more than me. And I'd volunteer, I'd find causes worthy of my time because my time would be that of God's. He blessed me with it, and so I should be a good steward of it.
When I saw Phyllis yesterday, hugged her, and kissed the top of her head, as I often do, I thought, "I can't believe how blessed I am". I surely don't deserve it, but thanks to God's grace and His never ending love... I am blessed.
I wonder, am I blessed really more than most, or is it that I just am open so much to God's love that I see it more, so it seems like I am blessed more than most...
So my question to you... what really would you do if you won TEN MILLION DOLLARS?
Jer 4:2 and if in a truthful, just and righteous way you swear, 'As surely as the LORD lives,' then the nations will be blessed by him and in him they will glory."
