God has blessed us with so many blessings. If we take time to sit still and list all the blessings that God has blessed us with, we will be amazed at how much we can put down on our list. From spiritual, material, relationship, and to our own survival, we can list so many blessings regardless of what is going on in our lives. There is always that we can thank our God for. Our very own salvation is a blessing to us. We are forgiven of our sin because God has saved us with our Lord Jesus' life. Our very existence is a blessing. God has given us body and life to exist. God has given us nature that can sustain us while we appreciate them.
We have a place to stay every night. We have water to drink and can take showers. We have food. We have clothes, socks, shoes, and pants that we can wear. We have cellphones. We have friends and families. We have jobs. We have a heater and A/C to make us comfortable. We have friends and families. The fun and wonderful memories that we have in the past are all blessings from God. Our future hope in heaven is a blessing. If we go outside right now and take a deep breath with the fresh air and fill our lungs with it, that is also a blessing. If we can move around, walk, and run, these are also a blessing. The joy, the sadness, the laughter, the smile, etc., are all blessings. The list can go on and on.
When we pause and think of all the blessings that we have, we can appreciate God and life more. But if we only think only about our problems and negative thoughts, we will miss the opportunity to enjoy life. Let us look up and not down. Smile and not frown. Be thankful and not complain. Love God and love others. Be hopeful in God's grace, mercy, and love, and not walk in doubt. Walk by faith and not by sight. Let us fill our minds with the blessings of God today, and trust Him. If God has brought us this far in our lives, He will certainly continue to carry us through this life.
Ask yourself these questions: What are the blessings that God has given me (try to see if you can write down at least 50 blessings)? How do I feel after writing down the list of my blessings? How do I show my appreciation to God?
Write down all the worries that you are facing today and lift them up to God.
Father in Heaven, thank you for all your blessings in my life. My words are not enough to express my gratitude to you. You have given me so much. Please help me never to forget your blessings that I may always appreciate and not doubt you. Thank you for loving me and help me to love you back with my life. Please help me now with (mention your prayer requests). In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
