Do You Ever Think About the Things You Take for Granted?

November 13, 2023

In our fast-paced and hectic lives, getting caught up in the rush of daily routines and responsibilities is easy.

As we go through the challenges and triumphs, we often forget to pause and reflect on the things we have, the blessings we enjoy, and the privileges we take for granted. 

We take for granted our health, families, friends, homes, jobs, and even simple things like clean water and a roof over our heads.

Maybe it’s the sunshine streaming through the trees, the oxygen flowing through your lungs, or the people you care about most. Or maybe it’s the Word of God.

• But what if we lost one of those things?

 • What if we got sick?

 • What if we lost our loved?

• What if we lost our job? 

• What if we lost our home?

Suddenly, those things that we took for granted would become incredibly precious!

That’s why it’s essential to take a step back occasionally and think about the things we take for granted. 

To remind ourselves of how lucky we are and to appreciate the things that we have. This piece serves as a gentle reminder to contemplate the significance of the seemingly ordinary aspects of life that make our existence more meaningful.
