Blessings


Although you have been told to count them, you may not always recognize and account for your blessings. Blessings are those beautifully precious gems of grace and joy provided by God. They include the people in your life, place where you call home, experiences and situations to name a few. There may be other blessings besides these that are not just over looked but are viewed as "problems" or "challenges" instead of the blessing they really are. An example would be when you pray and your prayer is not answered with a "yes" in order to protect you from something that would have harmed or impacted you negatively.  All and all, blessings are sprinkled into your life every single day. Here is a reminder of just how blessed you are:

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married you are very rare, even in the United States and Canada.


If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Yes, you have many blessings. Give thanks to God for all you have and for the amazing love and care He provides you every day.

You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Psalm 128:2
