Count Your Blessings

Psalm 40 Verse 4a

How blessed is the man who has made the LORD his trust.

Psalm 40 Verse 5

Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, and Your thoughts toward us; there is none to compare with You.  If I would declare and speak of them, they would be too numerous to count.               (NASB)

The 5th suggested resolution is to count our blessings, name them ton by ton.

We have eternal life with Jesus; we are forgiven; we are not forsaken; we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and knows what is best for us; we have the Bible the written Word of GOD; we have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us (GOD WITH US EMMANUEL); we have the storehouses of peace, love, joy, wisdom, mercy, compassion, healing, strength, and power to live for God.   Let us start this day counting our many blessings.

“Count Your Blessings” written by Johnson Oatman, Jr. and Edwin O. Excell

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged thinking all is lost; Count your many blessings—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 be singing as the days go by.

When you look at others with their lands and gold,  Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold; Count your many blessings money cannot buy, Your reward in heaven nor your home on high.

So amid the conflict whether great or small, Do not be discouraged God is over all; Count your many blessings –angels will attend; Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary
