Count Your Blessings...Name Them One by One

Today is a great day to be thankful for our many blessings!  In fact, every day is a great day to be thankful for our many blessings!  There is an old hymn called "Count Your Blessings" that suggests if we count our blessings individually, we will be astonished how many we have been given.  The truth is...if we take time to count our blessings we most assuredly will be blown away by the sheer number of them! 

It is unbelieveable how God continually blesses after day...whether or not we deserve it!!  You know...when we have an attitude of gratitude we tend to feel better all around.  If we mope and cry and complain about what we don't have and how bad off we are, we are going to be in a horrible state of mind.  No one will want to be around us.  Negativity will eat you up. 

If you are feeling down and out or like you've been left behind while the world goes on, take a few minutes to begin counting your blessings.  Start out one at a time...start with the big, obvious blessings, like your home, your job, your car, etc.  As you count of the big blessings, begin to thank God for the smaller things in your life.  Thank God for the snow or rain, for the sunshine or the clouds.  Thank Him for the pain you feel in your body because you CAN feel pain.  Thank Him for waking you up this morning.  Thank God for your family...even if your family is a little on the 'odd' side.  {*smiles*}

I promise...if you take time to count your blessings you will soon find that your are smiling and life won't seem so bad!

Take a few minutes now and begin counting...then post a reply with some of your blessings.  Who knows, perhaps your blessings will cause someone else to realize their blessings!

God bless,
