Today I am feeling very thankful and humbled. The past couple of weeks have been causing me a lot of stress and anxiety. Yesterday I asked my sweet husband to give me a priesthood blessing. After the blessing, I felt the comfort I had been searching for. Waking up today, I feel refreshed and extremely grateful for the things I have.
First and foremost, I am thankful for a merciful God. I know that he hears every prayer we say, and the ones we just carry in our hearts. He feels what we feel, and knows what we are going through. He knows all of our anxieties and our doubts, even if we don't voice them out loud. He sees all the tears we cry, and is there with us during our hardest days. He never leaves us, and will never abandon us. He is there at all times, even if we cannot feel Him. I've learned over the years that if I feel like I'm alone, it's usually because I'm being too stubborn to feel the comfort that comes through prayer. I sometimes need a reminder to take a break from all the busy moments in life, and just be still. In those moments, I can feel my Heavenly Father comforting me. I have a testimony that if you are doubting anything, you have to let Him in, with real intent. God wants to hear from us, even when we feel unimportant. If it's important to us, it's important to Him. Don't ever forget that!!! :)
I am also very thankful for my sweet husband, and his support in everything that I do! I'm thankful for a wonderful family that makes me feel loved. I'm thankful that I'm able to express myself through my blog, that I have somewhere to share the things I care about! And I'm thankful for you, reader, for showing your support :)
