Count your Blessings
An old song says: "Count your blessings, name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done."It's easy to lose perspective. We all face challenges and difficulties in life. And if we are not on guard, they can divert our attention from all the Lord has done for us. Yes, you may face obstacles, but you need to remember the man who complained that he had no shoes till he saw a man who had no feet.
We may not have everything we would like, but we all have something to be thankful for.
EPHESIANS 1:3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.
Your attitude is determined by your focus. When you focus on the negative -- you turn negative, making your life, and those around you, miserable. It is amazing how different you feel after taking just a few minutes to truly thank God for what you have.
I can read! I can see! I can smell!I can eat! I can hear! I can talk! I can think! God loves me! Jesus died for me! I have a home in Heaven!
Thank you Lord for every blessing you have provided for me.
