Be Blessed


God made a promise long before we were even created that we would be blessed by His wondrous Love. That is the miracle of life! You know I say this alot "be blessed or blessings and love" sometimes we all need the reminder of the many blessings we already have or have coming.

Do you ever take the time to count your many blessings? Look around you, look at what you have on, that you have a hair brush to brush your hair, a toothbrush to brush your teeth. So many things we take for granite.
Any time you feel lonely, despair, anger or resentment, all you have to do is think about the great love that conceived you. There are no "accidents" in life, and when you learn that all life is precious, it's amazing how many blessings you will find when you look around yourself. Whether it's the promise of the rainbow, the misty diamonds on the sand, or the rise and setting of the sun, know that you are blessed when you live in peace.

Have you seen the glistening sparkles of the morning dew? You are Blessed
Have you heard a bird sing? You are Blessed
Have you strolled along a beach or garden trail? You are Blessed

Know you are blessed in every way, and appreciate the bounty that God has given you. The ability to read is a blessing in itself. When you start thinking about all the other gracious blessings that life has offered you, your life becomes a little easier, a lot happier, and much more prosperous.


Lord, I thank You for this day, I thank You for my being able to see and to hear from you today. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness. Please keep me and my friends safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You. Please broaden my mind that I can accept things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through your eyes God and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrong doing, and receive the forgiveness of God.
And Lord when this world closes in on me, let me remember to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those that are lost and cant find their way. I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those that don't believe. But I thank you that I believe. I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes, that they are out of debt and all their needs are met. I pray that every person that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly. I pray that as you go forth into the week, remind yourself whose you are, then tell someone close to you, “Gods got a place for you in His kingdom.” And Lord may we all be blessed to be a blessing to all.
Amen!!!

What a great post. We are SO blessed! I thank God for even the smallest blessings. I write a post every Thursday thanking God for my blessings (Thankful Thursday).

I pray we will never take all that we have for granted.

What a beautiful prayer Sharon. I think you're right about stopping to think the He is the one who has blessed us with everything that we have including things like toothbrushes. That's one reason I love to listen to my grandaughters pray. They just look around the room and see tons of stuff to thank Him for.

Rich blessings to you my friend!
