Just like everyone else, I get discouraged and I get the “Woe is me” mindset.
The other day I visited a new blog that had just started (which has nothing to do with this post). I wanted to leave a comment and she had the kind of comment box that is embedded and had Word Verification. I rarely see real words in word verifications. This time I did.
The word I needed to type in was Bless.
In spite of my emerging poor-me-itis I AM blessed.
Some days I brood over things like:
- Stomach upsets
- Where does my money go?
- A house that needs a thousand repairs
- Spilling Milk
- Dropping my keys five times
Sometimes I get discouraged. And then I count my blessings:
- Laughing grandchildren
- Loving family
- A job
- Plentiful food
- A country where I can worship God without consequences.
Just to mention a few.
I am blessed, and it took word verification to remind me—I am blessed.
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalms 100:1-5 (NIV)
Count your blessings and it may just change everything.
