How Can I Be This Blessed - Birthday Reflections at 34 by Ross Oscar Knight

Tuesday, April 30, 2013



I woke up this morning and asked myself one simple question: How can I be this blessed?

Before I could finish the thought I was brushed by the wet nose of my dog, Bauer, and my ear was being pulled sharply by my daughter, Addison. I peered my eyes open to see my wife in the background pacing back and forth across our hardwoods getting ready for work. I snapped out of my trance to embrace the blessings right before my eyes.

A year ago I was trying to figure out how to strengthen my relationship with God, how to be a more supportive husband, and how I would respond to fatherhood. There was some instability in my goals. There still is. That's life. I realize that I will have to work at these things for the rest of my life.

One thing is for sure: I WILL NO LONGER LET PAST FAILURES IMPEDE MY FUTURE PROGRESS.

This is my life. This is my moment. This is my time. Time to be all that God has called me to be. I am too blessed to sit idle and simply ponder possibilities. I speak it into existence now. The next year of my life will be divinely inspired and I will revel in His glory and His word.

Amen.
