As much as I struggle with severe OCD/anxiety, I look around at all the chaos in the world and think "Wow, I am so blessed." I feel bad because although I try to be a good person, love and accept everyone, I know how sinful my heart is even if it means I am getting some sort of secondary gain from being a "good" person. I think of all the tragedies, war, and genocide and how here I am desiring more when already I have so much.

I just feel blessed and thankful. I always feel like I need to tell the LORD that and not take it all for granted. To be honest, sometimes I feel that people who have had such horribleness, might deserve things more than I do.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16

I always think the least we can do is be thankful. I sometimes think we have it too good for our own good even though we all do have our own struggles.

I try my best to always remember and acknowledge that all my blessings come from Jesus. I Thank him in my prayers every day and I make a point to give back through service and tithing as much as I can. But I still often feel like I'm not doing enough.

When I feel like I'm not doing enough I have to remind myself that I was called to specific tasks. The Lord needs me doing what I'm doing and that includes feeding myself spiritually so I can continhe to serve.

I do think I take things for granted a lot of the time though. It's something I'm working on.

Yes for sure!

I really appreciate everything that we have! We are very thankful. I always thank Jesus whenever I can but I know I need to praise him more. I feel truly blessed and don't take anything for granted. In return, I try to be the best person I can be. This is something I am always working on!
