These past few months have been great. I'm always amazed at how God seems to work in my life even though at times I don't think that I deserve it. When I think back on my life, God has always taken care of all my needs and even a lot of my wants. He blessed me with a great family growing up, an awesome youth group through Jr High and High School, great friends at home and at college, and a great church family wherever I have been.
He has also blessed me with various material blessings. My very first car, a 1987 Ford Bronco II was given to us as long as we could get it running. My second car, a 1990 Nissan Maxima, was also given to us so I would have a more reliable car for college. When my computer stopped working this last year during my internship, some families in the church got together and bought me a new one. When I was at school it was not uncommon to get a note in my mailbox saying that someone had made an anonymous payment towards my school bill.
Things continue to go well for me in spite of me seemingly screwing things up occasionally. Right now in my life, my family is still awesome and continues to support me in everything that I do. My friends are also still awesome, keeping in touch for the most part even though I'm 4 hours away. I just recently got a wonderful girlfriend, Meghan Splattstoesser and she is seriously amazing! I also just recently got a new truck, which I have wanted forever. I have a great job doing what I love as a youth intern. I will be going back to school starting next fall and am super excited about that. God has really taken care of me.
I guess the reason why I'm writing all of this is because most of the time I fail to give God the glory for all the things that are happening in my life. I like to take the credit for myself. So right now I just want to stop and say thanks God for blessing me even though I don't deserve it.
How has God blessed you in your life? Do you give Him the glory for those things?
