So many times we focus on things that have not gone well for us. We look at circumstances that stress and discourage us rather than looking at the surroundings that are, in themselves, miracles. We take so many things for granted when we shouldn’t. So today I wrote down things that I easily forget to be grateful for, and God reminded me how blessed I am and encouraged me greatly.
These are some of the blessings I wrote down on my journal.
He gave me breath and another day, He gave us the Sun and beautiful weather that is not hot. He also gave us winds to blow and the clouds on the sky. He gave me ears to hear, mouth to eat, eyes to see, nose to smell, feet to stand, hands to write, and both of my legs and both of my arms. He also gave me health. He gave me food for today, water to drink, clothes and shoes to wear, a car to drive and protected me on road. He gave me His Word and heart to read and follow it. He revealed Himself to me and allowed me to have a relationship with Him. He gave His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Spirit to help me believe. He gave me financial problems so that I may have compassion for the needy. He helped me rejoice in the time of troubles. He gave me the opportunity to study and gave me the job. He gave me an amazing family, both of my parents and my younger brother………………and He created me. I am thankful for my existence.
As I was writing them down, I could not hold my tears. There are much more than what I wrote. I was and I am so thankful for everything He has given me and has done for me. It was very precious moment to remind myself how much God has loved me, and that moment encouraged me deeply.
I hope you take a moment just to think about the blessings He has given you and be encouraged and comforted by God, who loves you much more than you can ever imagine!
