Surprised by Blessings

Lately I have been overwhelmed by an immense amount of blessings! I’ll list a few below:

1 We recently were able to start painting the house (which made an awesome difference)

2 We  opened up our home for a GORGEOUS bridal shower

3 It was my birthday a couple days ago and my sweet friend put together a fun outdoor soiree

4 Totally was not expecting to receive gifts from the above soiree but made out like a bandit

5 And one of the most sweetest blessings; being a part of a ministry that will be taking off soon

That was a few of many things that have been showering my heart with joy and thankfulness.

Now my point of this post is not to say that ‘yet I’m still wanting’ or how ‘I don’t recognize them for the blessings they are’, but to simply share how this has so amazed and humbled me! I mean, who am I that God would pour out all these blessings over me, and keep pouring?!

I’ve done absolutely nothing to deserve this…and perhaps that’s the point. I believe that this time around, God has intended to be glorified within the sweet moments that I’m pondering all the wonderful things He has done for me. Like how He provides in such a way that I can randomly surprise a friend for lunch. Or when I choose the wrong paint color and we’re able to go back and get the right one (more on that in a later post). Or when I feel blah and such a slacker housewife and am greeted in the morning with a note of appreciation for all the work I do.

I cannot express to Him my thankfulness and amazement! What can I do but offer my heart in humble praise?
