Many Blessings

On the radio playlist the other day, the song ‘Count Your Blessings, Name Them One by One’ was included. I hadn’t heard this song for a very long time, and it gave me a chance to really appreciate the lyrics. They say : 

Are you ever burdened with a load of care? 

Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear? 

Count your many blessings, ev’ry doubt will fly, 

And you will be singing as the days go by. 

It reminds us to take the time to think about what God has done and is doing for us. We often focus on the horrid things – evil, sickness, hurricanes, floods, devastation, and famine. But, it is essential to take time every day to verbalize or write all you are thankful for. You may want to use this outline – doing so will revitalize your soul. 

Thank Him 

Psalm 100:4 tells us, 

“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.” 

•    Thank Him for His patience and forgiveness. 

•    Thank Him for the privilege of coming into His presence. 

•    Thank Him for what He has done in and through your life in the last year. 

List What He Has Done 

Take time to list what God has done for you. Be specific. Think through every area of your life. Become Still Before the Lord.  

Praise Him for who God is. (Psalm 103) 

Praise Him for His attributes. (Psalm 145) 

Rejoice in your fellowship with Him. (Proverbs 15:8) 

Praise and pray scripture back to God. (Psalms 146-150) 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, I thank You for the beauty of this season. Father, I thank You for health and strength. I thank You for people to love and people who love me. I love You God and thank You for loving me first. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
