Today during Sunday school we talked about mercy and justices.
Mine and Bryan's life hasn't been easy. (like most peoples) We've overcome a lot of struggles together. Sometimes we get really down about stuff. We try our best and feel like it's just not enough. Today's lesson really was what I needed to hear.
It's easy to think "unfairness" when it comes to life. People having more then us, or seeing all that we lack.
I came away thinking about how blessed we really are. How Heavenly Father may not have made things as easy as we had hoped, but he has placed his mercies all around us. I am grateful to be able to see God's hands working in my life. We truly have all the things we stand in need of and sometimes extras. Yes, I might not be able to shop as much as I want for fancy gadgets to put around the house or items like that. But I have a home right now, we have a backyard, I have a garden full of veggies that are growing so beautifully, I have amazing children, and a pretty awesome husband.
Do I deserve all these things? Certainly not. I am humbled when I think of all my imperfections. Yet Heavenly Father has seen then and still continues to bless me.
I challenge you to try to see the extra mercies from Heavenly Father in your life this week! (that's our challenge.. I'm only one day into it and I've really been made aware of a lot more then I thought)
