Count Your Blessings
I really think that this old song is one of the greatest reminders that we could have everyday. I know how easy it is to look upon the negative in our lives. To consider what we need or want for ourselves or even for the world. But what if every day we considered our blessings first, before we went to prayer and ask God to give us what we think we need, what if we spent the time just considering what He has already done for us and give thanks for that.
When we consider this season that we use to celebrate the birth of Christ Jesus, what could be more of a blessing than the promise that the Lord has already kept when He sent His Son to save all of us who are sinners upon this earth. The blessing of being adopted into His family! How wonderful it is to know that our eternity is secure in the promise and the knowledge that He keeps His promise. God bless you and have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!
