This Christmas I have a lot of blessings to be thankful for. This year God has done some incredible things in my life. The current season of my life has been better than any other season of college. It has been a hard and busy season for me, but I have nothing serious to complain about.
I don’t say this to brag about how my life is. My life is far from put together. I have struggles just like you do. Here are some of the reasons I am extremely grateful this Christmas. A few of the reasons are because of my job, church, school, and most importantly God.
I have had a hard time with jobs in college. It was hard to balance a job and school for most of college. Currently I am at a workplace that I love! Having a job that I look forward to working at has been incredible. I can’t say that about most of my jobs. Also, this job is enough to completely pay my bills.
I have also found multiple opportunities to get involved at my church. I have seen my relationship with God grow a lot in the past year due to my church challenging me. This year I have been given the opportunity to help lead a middle school & college aged small group. I have loved these two opportunities, and it’s has been a great joy in my life.
Also, this past year I have graduated with my undergraduate degree. Now I am in graduate school at Liberty University. I have enjoyed graduate school, because I am specifically taking courses that intrigue me. I will hopefully be finishing my master’s degree in the summer of 2020.
The most important reason I have I feel grateful for this Christmas has been because of God. I know that all these blessings have come from God, and I want to acknowledge and praise how great God is in my life.
Though I know that not everyone is going through a good season of life like I have been in. I know for some of you this has been the hardest year of your life. I want to encourage you that it does get better. I have had seasons where I had very little hope. Now I can look back and know that God was using those difficult times to prepare me for today. No second of your life is wasted to God.
So regardless of the season you are in right now. I want to remind you who’s birth we celebrate on Christmas. We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. If you don’t know Him personally, then please email or contact me. I would love to tell you more about Jesus.
