Last night I went for a run when I got home from work. I looked up, and realized that the sky was filled with stars! I literally had to stop and soak in the beauty of it all. I can remember saying all the time “I can’t wait to be able to hang out under the stars one day. There were very few times we were allowed to be outside after dark just hanging out. And it was something I always looked forward to. But I forgot until last night.
Isn’t it odd how fast we forget. How you can long for something so hard, then when you get it, you forgot you never had it. Kinda goes with the saying, “You don’t know what you have till it’s gone.”
I don’t ever want to take for granted the good things I have in my life. I am surrounded by good things and good people. Life is good and only getting better!
Last night I saw the GREATNESS of our God! He was all around me! I don’t ever want to forget His POWER and GRACE! How He brought me from a place of destruction to a place of hope and restoration.
“Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you DO NOT FORGET the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. ” Deuteronomy 4:9
It’s so easy to take things for granted in this life where everyone has everything and still wants more. I’m not excluded from this. I lived out of a waist high locker for 4 years. And now I’m struggling with figuring out what I need and what I only want.
But I never want to forget how God provided for me. And how He is still providing for me. He will “supply all my needs according to His glorious riches!” Phil 4:19
