I was going to walk three blocks to corner store
When all of a sudden a major cramp came in my leg
Ohh, how a simple short walk became impossible
It reminded me
Doing some everyday routine things can be taken for granted
But get sick, or unable to perform them,
And the simplest task can become a major task
I used to hear about athletes not playing due to a small bodily injury like a sore toe
And I’d think, how trivial
How could something that small prevent you from playing
But then I experienced a toe injury
And while the body part is small
The pain is huge
And it prevents you from doing a lot of things
I feel like thanking God more now
To be able to do simple things with ease
Simple things can be overlooked blessings
Sometimes we want or pray for major stuff or miracles
Not realizing the greatest blessings are already with us.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you
The above verse reminds me to thank God for every blessing and not to overlook the daily routine blessings He gives me everyday.
Psalms 75:1 (To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.) Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
