If you have ever heard of Ann Voskamp and her book, One Thousand Gifts, you know she has encouraged us to give thanks daily for the gifts God has placed in our lives. Ever since I read her book, I've been more mindful of all the blessings in my life - even the little things.
Of course, I'm grateful for the greatest blessings that God has placed in my life: salvation, husband, kids, loving parents, health, food on the table, roof over my head, family and friends.
But I don't stop there. Blessings surround me every day and in all ways. I daresay blessings
|Grateful for a Beautiful World!|
I've become a blessing-counter and I highly recommend it. It pays to be grateful. You might wonder what good being grateful can do.
Seeing all the good things you have in your life lets you see how good God has been to you. Even those who, on the outside looking in, we might think have a hard life, can still find abundant blessings God has given them. And each blessing we have, even if we can only think of one, testifies of a good and loving God who will help us.
He is ever the same.* He has no favorites.* If He had compassion and extended mercy to us once, He will again.*
Look to the Source of every good thing in your life. You won't be disappointed!
* Hebrews 13:8, Acts 10:34-35, Lamentations 3:22-23
