NOTHING BUT THE GRACE OF GOD
GIVING THANKS / STORYTIME
I just want to take a moment to give thanks to God for keeping me. Not only is today my birthday, but I had such a scary moment early this morning. I woke up around 2 am which isn’t out of the ordinary. I will wake up and go to the restroom and head back to bed. Well, this time I woke up to the smell of plastic or rubber burning. I thought it was coming from outside since the window was cracked. But the smell was getting stronger and more concerning.
I have a small heater in my room that cuts on automatically when the temp goes down and cuts off when it gets too hot. Well, not this morning! The first thought was maybe its the heater, I went to look at the outlet and the plug had melted in the outlet and smoldering. Without hesitation, I unplugged it so it wouldn’t cause a fire. Then I unplugged my lamp which was in the same outlet. So the moral of the story is to count your blessings!
I thank God for keeping me, especially on my birthday! It reaffirms that I am supposed to be here and my job on this earth is not done. Live in your purpose and even if you aren’t sure of what your purpose is yet, live in the light. Meaning live as if tomorrow isn’t promised. Amen! Amen!!
