Take a Step Back

Saturday and Sunday were a great start to the Holiday season for my family. We spent Saturday evening with family and friends watching The Mag Mile parade. It was cold but Yus’ glee as the floats went by warmed my heart. We had tons of fun!

All bundled for the fun!

Sunday was spent as most of are Sunday’s are at, church. This Sunday’s message really hit J & I as we have over the last month or so really been taking stock of our blessings and how far God has brought us. We attend City Church Chicago and Pastor Kent spoke from Hebrews 11:21:

21 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons, and worshiped as he leaned on the top of his staff.

Pastor Kent mentioned how we have to take a step back and worship God for our blessings small and large.

There is a Perspective that Produces Worship

Lean on God’s promise.

Are you taking the time to reflect and look back on the marks on your staff and All that God has done for you and your family? If not, take a step back and really look at your life and look at your story. Thank God in this season for where He has brought you from and where He will take you.

Just wanted to drop this little nugget on you all and hope it blesses you like it has blessed me.

‘Tis the season to be Thankful!
