Sometimes we complain so much about the not-so-fun things happening in our lives that we often forget to count how much God is blessing us.
Yeah, life can be tough, crazy, and so confusing. We hurt and separate ourselves from the rest of the world. Ongoing pains and fatal diagnoses sometimes create doubts about God’s love in our lives. And just when you think, ‘My life is perfect,’ then some strange things start to happen directly or indirectly to you.
But no matter what life throws at you, counting your blessing can change one’s perspectives on life, because God never forsakes God’s people (Psalm 94:14). God promised to take care of us and always does even if we don’t seem to notice it.
So, you know what? I have made up my mind to keep counting my blessings more each day. Please join me with this new lifestyle to count your blessings at all times!
