Everything is not good all of the time, and sometimes when it is not good, it is difficult to be positive and see blessing in our lives.
James 1 Verse 17: ‘Every good gift and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with Whom there is no variation of shadow due to change.’
Psalm 118 Verse 1: ‘Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast loves endures forever.”
To encourage this week, I want to share the words written by Johnson Oatman [1856-1922] You may know them:
When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed; when you are discouraged, thinking all is lost:
Count your many blessing, name them one by one; and it will surprise you what the lord has done.
Are you ever burdened with a load of care? Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly; and you will keep singing as the days go by.
So amid the conflict, whether great or small, do not be disheartened, God is over all.
Count your many blessings, angels will attend; help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your blessings every day. Help us to recognize them, and not forget to thank you for them. Please watch over us and our families this week, In Jesus Name I Pray
