For some weeks now I’d gotten into the habit of making not-so-subtle jabs at my life condition in general and my job in particular. And then I came across the infographic below:
I’d given it a quick once-over and was ready to move on to something else when I felt a nudge to “look” for myself in each category (just another sign of my self-absorption). I started at the top (gender) and worked my way anti-clockwise. By the time I got to ‘nutrition’, I was under conviction.
How quickly I forgot that just a year ago, a lot of what I’ve been complaining about was nowhere in sight. How easily I forgot all that the Lord has done for me. And I’m grateful that He’s still mindful of me, even to the point of using unusual means to get the focus off of what I think I lack and onto what I already have!
