Count Your Blessings ~ May 19

Count Your Blessings

If you’ve got time

So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine. Proverbs 3:10

I know it’s not true for everyone, but in this country, most of us have plenty—of everything. We have so much we take for granted, things that those in times past had to struggle to attain. And yet, we often complain.

I’m not exempt; I too often catch myself grumbling when some little something doesn’t go exactly the way I planned it. The reality of my life—should I closely examine it—is I have to look for something to complain about.

My refrigerator and pantry is always full of good things to eat; my house is too big for two people, and it’s always warm or cool, whichever I happen to desire. My vehicles are always full of gas, and I can hop into either one and go just about anywhere I want to go.

In fact, I could probably write all day, telling you about the blessings God continues to pour out on me. If I were to make a list of the good things, and a list of the bad things, I could fill pages and pages with the good, and probably only a small portion of a page with the bad. The fact is, if I counted all my blessings every day, I wouldn’t have time to do anything else.

Count your blessings! (If you have time.)
