Have we really taken the time to consider our blessings?
I like to think of blessings as little gifts from God. Little reminders that He is watching, hearing and answering each and every prayer.
Sometimes the blessings my not be in the way we want them to be.
Blessings have more to do with God than with us. Think of them as reflecting His amazing grace and His long-suffering character. They flow from His lovingkindness and goodness.
“For He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matthew 5:45).
In the midst of great blessing, our hearts can still be far from God. And apart from Him, blessings are merely temporal and empty.
We must consistently pray and ask God to help us to use the blessings He has given us towards His will. Most importantly, always give Him thanks for the blessings.
lots of love,
