Sharing Day 16 Project GRAPEful…
Project GRAPEful continues…Recap:
We aim to bless our readers who, for the most part, have had a very difficult year in 2015. For the next 21 days until Thanksgiving day, we will be sharing inspiring stories and things we are “GRAPEful” for. We pray these tidbits bless you and that you and your family will find peace and strength each day. (Aside from being able to enter to win prizes which you can read more about by clicking the link above.)
Some final thoughts about my article on The Blessings of Pain:
Has sanity returned to JoJo? While I’d never choose pain and I do whatever I can to alleviate it, I do count these among my blessings. If you have to have pain, at least there is something good that comes of it. “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” -Romans 5:3-5
My debate class learned a lot that week. I’m proud of them for reaching into their hearts to see the blessings past the pain they saw in the world, in their families or inside themselves. How can YOU see the blessings in your own pain? Please share your comments/feedback here as a blog comment. And please share this blog post with others who you think will benefit by seeing the blessings in their pain.
So today, I’m thankful for my debate class that sparked the idea for me to review the blessings of pain and struggle and for this Project GRAPEful idea that had me revisit what I wrote at a time when I’m struggling with even more issues.
What are your struggles and what are you thankful for today? Please share as a comment down below this post. And please share this post with your Facebook family and other social media friends to inspire them to come and share their own as well. We’ll be praying for each person listed below.
Here’s what will be awarded for the contest so far:
1. The most inspirational story
2. The person who shared our blog posts the most
3. The most insightful thing gained from doing this project
