Count Your Blessings

Have you ever had an appliance break at the worse absolute wrong time? How does it know to go kerplunk at the most inoperable time.

Recently, my refrigerator basically leaked all over my kitchen floor. Obviously, this is not an ideal situation for hosting any holiday parties.

While the repairman came and fixed several things the first time, I still had to have him return a second time to fix cracked water line. I am happy to say I now have ice cubes again, as these are one of the simple things in life.

While having frozen ice cubes may seem very trivial, I realized how blessed we truly are to have a roof over our head, food in our tummies, and that we’re healthy. There are thousands who are homeless, suffering with illnesses, or jobless in America due to financial circumstances beyond their control.

However in difficult times, we must remember that God in control, that God will provide, and God will never fail us. We need to truly count our blessings.

I realized that just because we have certain things it doesn’t mean one is necessarily happy, but if we focus on how God has blessed us, the more likely we are to be joyful in life.

May this Bible verse inspire you:

Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he or she who trusts in the Lord. ~Proverbs 16:20.
