Last year was a hard year for me.
It was one of the best years of my life and one of the hardest years of my life.
Last year, many tears were shed, many eyes were opened, many words were spoken, and many lessons learned.
One of the most important things I learned last year was to make the most with what I've got. And with the hustle and bustle of the holidays and then the new year, I have lost my way. I have let myself get caught up in the drama of life, I've let worry set in and make a home in my heart.
I have let money woes weight me down. Instead of constanly worrying whether I will have enough money to pay the rent, I should be focusing on God and giving my burdens over to Him. By worrying so much about what I don't have, I have lost my focus and I am missing what I do have that's right in front of me.
I have my health, I have children, I have husband, I have my home, I have friends, I have my God--and the list can go on and on.
The point is that I was SO consumed with what I don't have and I what I might not have in the near future, that I became blinded to what I do have and making the most of it.
So, things may not be perfect right now. And maybe I don't have all that I used to have, but the most important things I still do have--my God, my husband and my kids.
And so, today, and the rest of the week, I am making the most of what I've got.
Are you making the most of what you've got?
