Due to the Thanksgiving holiday this week, in lieu of prayer requests I’d like to have a post devoted to God’s blessings and praises–what God has given us instead of what He hasn’t yet (which He has we just can’t see it).
Too often (myself included) we forget out blessings and instead focus on the little setbacks in life. Granted, sometimes the setbacks are big but God is always in the midst.
Just some of my blessings:
I am blessed by my husband who sacrifices time with his family so we can live a good life. I am blessed to be able to write to you, to afford Internet, and to write somewhat intelligently. I am blessed being able to take guitar lessons and learn alongside my kids. They are blessed in this as well.
I lead a pretty good life. I don’t have to work. I spend all my time with my kids. I get to do whatever I want most of the time.
Sure, my husband is struggling in his career. But God is there. By his side the entire time. And God’s faithful to move him where He wants him.
I am blessed by my three beautiful children who God has entrusted to me to raise in His name.
I am blessed that I still have one dog whose unconditional love is hard to surpass.
I am blessed with a home, a family, food, clothing, and shelter. I am blessed by my blog and spreading His message. I am blessed by BSF and the Bible, God’s word. I am blessed by Him.
I am blessed by you all and your words of wisdom, different view points, prayers, encouragements, disagreements, opinions, answers, questions, challenges, and advice. I am grateful for each and every one of you who visit and my heart sings when you post your thoughts and prayers here. God bless you all.
What are your blessings?
