Sometimes it is sooo easy to look at what we don’t have, we didn’t get, what we lost, what we should have gotten or what we didn’t get enough of; that we forget what we Do have. Life is about counting the blessings each and every day; the blessings can be as simple as ‘travel mercy’- getting to and from work safely or surviving our battle with cancer.
We get lost on what we don’t have simply because we are always searching, wanting more,never satisfied. We come to believe that God has abandoned us/forgotten us to focus on others, when the reality is, that he hasbeen journeying with us,often unacknowledged. Blessing us in unobtrusive ways that we miss and bypass.
A blessing is not always the big stuff – how many of us have won the lottery?! A blessing is being in the right place at the right time; seeing a friend that you haven’t seen in a long while; celebrating a birthday with a loved one; spending time with a grandchild/ niece.These are the moments whereby we must count our blessings, the small and the large.
Let’s be grateful and remember to give thanks in the good times and in the bad times.
