I Am Blessed, We Are Blessed

“I Am Blessed, We Are Blessed”
Psalm 9:1-2 NIV
I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.  I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

This past week, I have been reminded over and over again just how very much God has blessed my life.  Even though I constantly feel various emotions with all that keeps happening and changing each day, I continue to remember that God is blessing me.  I am waking up in the morning with a different perspective on giving God thanks most days.  While it is easy some days to be flooded with all the thoughts of what I don’t have, I am reminded to be thankful for the abundance that I do have.

I have been thinking each day of so many ways God is providing and blessing me and it just overwhelms me how faithful He is.  His faithfulness never ceases to amaze me!

I have a house to live in……I am blessed!
I have clothes to wear…..I am blessed!
I have my wife and kids that I love and who love me…..I am blessed!
I look in my pantry…..I am blessed!
I look in my fridge…..I am blessed!
I look in my bank account…..I am blessed because He is always providing!
I still have a job…..I am blessed!
I am healthy and so is my family…..I am blessed!

I will give thanks to the Lord Almighty because I am blessed beyond measure.  I am thankful that He provides, even amidst the pandemic that doesn’t seem to end.  I am not only grateful this week for all of His provisions, but I have been thinking more and more about all the people who are working constantly on the front lines keeping us safe as we stay home.  They are doing so much to help and giving so much of their time and putting their lives on the line every day. 

Friends, I am blessed and we are all blessed!  We are blessed more than we realize.  May we take time to give God thanks each day for His faithfulness as He provides. 

Lord, You continue to provide for us all in many different ways.  Help us to understand and realize that You will give us what we need, when we need it.  Help us to be patient as we live each day, trusting that You will guide us and comfort us no matter what we are experiencing.  Help us to see and remember that You are truly faithful and that will never end!  We love You, Lord and we give You thanks for all the wonderful things You do.  Lord, help us never forget that we are all truly blessed.  May You open our eyes to that each day.  Amen!

Excellent post. AMEN.
 If we all lived by those words, we'd all be happy.
 We were created with the ability to make choices and decisions, and to live seeing only the negative and ignoring the positive, is a formula for failure. Seeing the positive will result in gratitude and growth in our faith. It's the only way to fly.
Continued blessings, Sir.
