Choosing Gratitude 10

Absent Blessings – things that the Lord has spared me from

30 days of thanksgiving:

91. Not experienced the death of a parent

92. Not experienced the death of a sibling

93. Never been without food

94. Never been without water

95. Never lacked clothing

96. Never lacked shelter

97. Never lacked employment

98. Never experienced physical persecution for my faith

99. Never had my heart broken by a guy

100. Never had severe physical affliction

Though I have not had much affliction in my life, I pray that that will not keep me from pursuing my Savior fervently. I am challenged by those who are severely afflicted yet intensely secure in the Lord. I want to be prepared for affliction if/when it comes by storing up treasures of truth in my heart during happy times. Help me, Lord.
