So Many Blessings

|



I am struggling a bit tonight to write this post. Usually when this happens, it's because I can't get past certain negatives in my day enough and focus on the blessings. However, tonight it is the exact obvious.

Tonight I am seeing so many things for which to be thankful that I'm not sure where to start or how to write it all down. I am finding that the more I focus on the many blessings -- as opposed to the stuff in life that I don't like -- that I come to the point where I am just overwhelmed with all I have received from the Lord. The list becomes endless... from the large to the small, almost mundane... it is all good and all worthy of praise!

So, for tonight I think I will simply state my thankfulness like this.....


"Thank you, Lord, for showing me the many things in my life that are so very good and have been given to me by You. Thank you for showing me how much better life can be when I focus on You and on the many blessings you have bestowed on me rather than focusing on the things I encounter that I do not like. Thank you for all you to do for me and my family and all that you will continue to do in the future. Amen."

God is so good. How right you are that we need to praise Him and thank Him. Instead of focusing on what we don't like, it changes our perspective when we focus on what's good and right.

Blessings,
