😎🐫🎤 Today I’m very thankful for our shower. We were without use of our shower for a week, being that the drain pipes rusted through. Not being able to take a shower everyday affected me physically (obviously), but also mentally and emotionally. I found myself a little on edge and not wanting to be around people as much. This really surprised me. Yesterday God challenged me to think about this experience, which I did. But then He said, living without taking a shower every day is nothing compared to living without me every day. That is so true. As I thought about His statement it just really hit home reflecting on those times in my life that I didn’t allow God in. How dirty and on edge I felt in those moments. How self-centered and alone I felt. How I was always out trying to impress others to try to make myself feel better. I very much appreciate how when your life is open to God, you can see and experience Him in all things and all situations. God is always offering us teachable moments. The next time you take a shower, think about how you would feel if you weren’t showered daily with God’s love, grace, and forgiveness. Now take those precious gifts and shower others with them. Today, even more than a shower, I’m thankful that I’m clean. Bless others and be blessed.
