Pity Party vs Praise Party

Well, I am struggling with my present condition! If you want to scroll right on by this post, I will not blame you. Life can really be a challenge sometimes. The rioting and coronavirus added more drama and turmoil, but the evidence of old age has truly taken its toil.

I am not bragging, just stating facts. I have a secretarial degree with a concentration in finances, a cosmetology degree, bachelors, masters, and Education Specialist Degrees in Middle School Education, and Secondary English, and I am a self-taught seamstress. I have always been able to do most anything I attempted, however, I am almost useless now. I tried to do my hair today, and my hands no longer cooperate with me. I became so frustrated, and I wanted to just sit down and cry. I love to help others, and it seems like I cannot even help myself. I don’t ask others for help very often, but I had a epiphany right then. It occurred to me that things happen to us for a reason.

God, in his infinite wisdom, mercy, and Grace shows me daily that I am His Child! He doesn’t love me because I can sew, cook, teach, give a permanent, or anything else I am capable of doing! He JUST L O V E S ME!! It doesn’t matter what I can do or cannot do. HE LOVES ME!

Therefore, from this point forward, I vow to stop my Pity Party, and I will be having an unending Praise Party! Heaven is my destination! Thank You, Heavenly Father for creating me! Thank You for all the things I can and cannot do! It makes life so interesting! Help me confront my inabilities and give me the strength and knowledge to ask for help, when it is needed. In Jesus’s Holy Name, AMEN
