Default Count Your Blessings

Though we're blessed all through the year, it seems like the right time of year to share this.

Count Your Blessings
By Charles R. Swindoll

Psalm 95


Sometimes when you don't feel like praying, or you're consumed with needing to speak to the Lord but can't gather the words, try that old standby---count your many blessings, count them one by one. It's' amazing how you can get carried away from worries and woes and self concern when you start naming out loud what you're thankful for. Right away your focus shifts from your needs to the Father's graciousness and love. Try this:

LOOK UP . . . Thank You, Lord . . . For Your sovereign control over our circumstances. For Your holy character in spite of our sinfulness. For Your Word that gives us direction. For Your grace that removes our guilt

LOOK AROUND . . . Thank You, Lord . . . For our wonderful country. For close family ties. For an opportunity to help others. For a place to live, clothes to wear, food to eat

LOOK WITHIN . . . Thank You, Lord . . . For eyes that see the beauty of Your creation. For minds that are curious, creative, and competent. For memories of pleasures and recent accomplishments. For broken dreams and lingering afflictions that humble us. For a sense of humor that brings healing and hope. He is worthy of our highest praise and gratitude. To Him goes all the glory.

IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS, FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD CONCERNING YOU.
