Count Your Blessings!

“Count your blessings, name them one by one, count your blessings, see what God has done” … So goes the old song just a simple chorus, but if you could read all the words, it has a beautiful message for us all! Sometimes we feel so picked on by life. We spend precious time reviewing our bad luck and hard knocks until we almost drown in our own self-pity. Too many days we allow ourselves to get so down we almost have to reach up to touch bottom! We hug memories of hurts, slights, sicknesses, financial setbacks, and disappointments to ourselves like dear old friends, determined to never let them go.

Why do we do this to ourselves? It is so destructive and self-defeating

There has got to be a better way! Life will be so much easier if we can lay all our old baggage at Jesus’ feet and let Him take care of it for us!

We must learn to count our blessings!
