In our culture today, we often throw around the word “blessed” like a proud badge of honor.
Things going well in your life? Have a nice car, house, or got to go on a great vacation? “I’m just so blessed!”
How often in your moments of weakness, when the weight of the world is on your shoulders, or when you’re in the middle of chaos, do you utter those same words?
The truth is, it’s in those kind of situations that Jesus tells us we are truly blessed. What if we started understanding how the blessed life is actually created out of these unexpected places?
