There are many things that I find myself complaining about. Whether it’s going to work, school, or being around people who try to tear me down, I get discouraged. However, a couple weeks ago after having a heart to heart conversation with my sister, we decided to think about these dreadful topics as our “necessities and blessings.” It is necessary for us to go to work in order to make money, so that we can someday travel to other countries. It is necessary for us to go to school to get a good education that we can use when we are someday on our own, doing ministry work like we want to. It is necessary to be around those negative people because that’s life and we need to know how to stay positive when others begin to bring us down. Those are the necessities, but they’re also blessings because we are blessed to have the ability to work and earn money to buy food and clothes. We are blessed to go to private, Christian schools where we are constantly surrounded by Jesus-loving people. We are blessed to be around those negative Nelly’s who we can be kind to and also bring positivity in their lives. Although I am excited for the places I am going, it is important to remember the “necessities and blessings” of life that will get us there.
Although I grew up in a small town of the Midwest, I have big dreams for the future. After living in the same place for 18 years, my family and I have decided to move ourselves across the ocean to Madrid, Spain. Although we know some Spanish, love the European culture, and have several friends in that region, our lives are about to be COMPLETELY different! It's gonna be a struggle, but the adventure will be worth it :) Follow along as we trust in the Lord to lead us on this new journey of life. View all posts by aubrygrace
