Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. “Some where down the line of life I had forgotten to Count my blessings until God reminded me of all the wonderful things that He has done in my life.
The nature of sin in me wanted to think of all the things that I don’t posses and wanted to cry out why and be in a place of continuous dissatisfaction. I thank God for helping me out of that place and showing me all the blessings in my life.
I pray that I will have a thankful heart and God please give me a heart of gratitude and be like Paul to be content when in abundance or in famine.
I remember the times when I wanted to be like Piper, satisfied and content (he shops in yard sales and is content), and at other times I wanted to be like these people who spoke wonders of how God richly blessed them to get a costly clothing/possession. The sinful nature in me wants the riches and God’s nature in me wants to be simple. I pray that you help me to be satisfied in everything that I have both great and small.
Teach me to count the blessings.
