I am not going to go into detail, but this week was hard for me. Emotionally, spiritually, and somewhat physically. However, this week I felt blessed in more ways than one. Each night I fell into bed hoping that God would add an extra hour to the night so I could get more sleep. Each morning I would get in my car and drive to work, praying hard that God would work in me and through me that day. I was stressed and tired.
However, by the end of the week, God answered my prayers. He blessed me in so many ways, mostly by putting me in hard situations only to bring me through more like him. He shined light on areas of blessing in my life and help me demonstrate my character in wonderful ways.
He blessed me by showing me how much I love my students and my job. He blessed me by showing how much of an amazing person my roommate is. He gave me some new friends and a new situation to learn more about him.
He blessed me by letting me cry in front of people who showed me how much they do really care. He blessed me by showing how amazing my students really are when I am not there, and how much they actually like me. (Not that them liking me is really important, but in a way it is.)
He blessed me by shedding light to the fact that I am where I am supposed to be, and he is to credit for that!
I am blessed. I am blessed by the God of the Universe. Not only blessed because eternal life, but by his continual presence and work in my life and the life of those around me. I will never be able to show my gratitude in a way that reflects the blessing.
