Appreciation in the Midst
Do you appreciate your job?
Do you truly show love towards your family? Friends?
Do you appreciate the opportunity to be educated? To attend school?
I am sure now it is easy to say yes. While stuck in the house all day, we begin to miss our daily activities. The very things we spent going through the motions, we now miss. The times we spent complaining, we want back. The moments where we didn’t show greater affection towards or couldn’t enjoy fully because we were too busy thinking about what’s next, we want to relive. Turn back time. Do it over again.
We never truly appreciate what we have until it’s gone.
Right now, temporarily, a lot is gone. Jobs are on hold; places are closed, and life has slowed.
But guess what?
It’s all back soon.
Before we know it, this static life will all be over and we the world will be running a million miles per hour again.
Take this time now to reflect on your life.
Do you appreciate what you have? Do you spend time with God? How can you love better throughout your day? How can you bring more peace to your day? Who can you love better throughout your day? What do you need to do more of? Less of? Do you enjoy what you do?
Every individual will answer differently and that is okay. You are unique.
Just don’t miss out on this opportunity to slow, reflect, and reset everything.
You will want this time back just like you are missing the way it was before the chaos.
Appreciate in the midst of it.
Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope."
