Several weeks ago, I was in the bank, (which I rarely go inside the bank), and witnessed the excitement of a teen girl cashing her first paycheck. When she got the cash in her hand, she proudly and excitedly exclaimed, “I did it, my first paycheck!” It reminded me how we should not take anything for granted in life. Something that we may have been doing for years, such as working and getting a paycheck, is a blessing from the Lord. Her excitement was a reminder to always be thankful for the blessings we receive, no matter how big or how small.
We live in an electronic society and it is rare nowadays to even have a paper paycheck in our hands. But seeing and hearing that teen girl that day brought smiles to all of us who were waiting behind her in line. I pray the reality of God’s blessings in your life, would fill your heart with joy and bring a smile to your face today.
