Multitude Monday #1098 - #1118...

This video of Laura Story playing her song "Blessings" was played at the end of the sermon yesterday at church...I feel like God continues to help me process these last 7 years and the trials I've been through. There have been so many blessings in the midst of these years...many would not have come without the trials themselves.

In her bio, Laura Story says "
But there’s a decision that I find God is asking us to make: whether we are going to choose to interpret our circumstances based on what we hold to be true about God, or whether we’re going to judge what we hold to be true about God based on our circumstances.”

Counting His gifts in my life has been one of the ways that I continue to remember that God is faithful and good, even in the midst of things that don't make sense or in the midst of stories that I would have hoped for a different ending.
