Do you feel blessed?





Do you feel blessed?






I do. 



My life isn't perfect, far from it.



I have suffered ups and downs like everyone else. 

Does anyone have a perfect life?

No

Regardless, I have much to be blessed about and much to thank the Lord for.







I have a roof over my head.

My home is comfortable and keeps me dry and warm.

I have a cosy bed to sleep in.

My home allows me to retreat from the world.

I have food on the table every night, my pantry is full and we do not run short.

I have clothes to wear, shoes for my feet.

I have good health but if I do have problems I have access to doctors, hospitals and affordable medicines.

My children had accessed to good schools.

The roads I drive on are safe and my car is road worthy.

My job meets our needs and pays the bills.

I live in a safe country free from war and famine.

I have family and friends that care about me. 

And I have a Lord that loves me endlessly, even when I slip and stumble. 

I am truly blessed,
 however,
 on occasions in my busy life I forget how blessed I really am. 

I have no reason to complain.

God is GOOD. 


And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19

  2. I am very blessed. Things go "wrong" all the time (by my estimation), but the Lord always has a plan, and He is always good and blesses us in millions of ways each day. :)

    1. I am discovering in my older years that many of the "problems" we face often lead to better things and make us stronger and wiser. Just being about to get up in the morning is a blessing in its self!

  5. I think we are all guilty of forgetting how blessed when we are when we have times of struggle.
    I have often in recent months sat on the end of our bed and made a conscience effort to thank God for all our blessings - otherwise, life gets too hard with the weight of our current struggles!
    Thanks for the reminder! :-)
