Counting Our Blessings
We're all tested from time to time with difficult trials that seem to bury us in a sea of despair. It is during these times that God has the opportunity to demonstrate His power, love, provision and sustaining grace. When tested beyond what we feel we can bear, it is the the act of counting our blessings and focusing on the love of Christ and exercising our faith in Him that will carry us through. Our pastor delivered a very encouraging message last night at prayer meeting about faith. We must trust in the person of Christ, the power of Christ, the provision of Christ, the purpose of Christ and the path of Christ. We don't understand all things, but God does. Look around and see all the blessings he continues to bestow even when the sea billows roll. Thank you, God, for my family, friends, health, church family, home................the blessings are too numerous to list. God is good......all the time!
