However, fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. Just look at the great things he has done for you!
1 Samuel 12:24
It’s very easy to look at issues in our lives and have a pity party. It can even get worse if we start comparing ourselves to others.
But when we look at what we don’t have, we miss all of what we do have. And God has blessed you with many blessings!
When was the last time you stopped and reflected on all the things God has done for you? When was the last time you thanked Him for all of your blessings?
Can you point to a specific day or time when you thanked Him?
But then, why do we only relfect on our blessings during certain times? Why don’t we do it ALL OF THE TIME?
If we we’re more grateful, if we counted our blessings more often, we would live our lives with an overwhelming knowing that God is for us, that He truly cares for us!
Get into the habit of thanking Him for all of your blessings. Get specific. The junk in life won’t have as much of a hold on you then.
Father, thank You for all the blessings in my life. They reveal to me that Your hand is always upon me.
