I wonder on a daily basis, how many things we count. For example
- Minutes until going home time!
- Potatoes to boil for the dinner
- Can of juice in the fridge
- Miles until you reach your destination
- Steps to enter a building
- Flowers blooming in your garden
Did you notice there was something missing from my list of suggestions – God wasn’t included in any of my suggestions.
I may not have included God in my list of suggestions, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing about God we should count each day. Do you count the number of blessings you receive from God each day?
It may be that when you first think about how many blessings you’ve received from God today you think there will be very few. But I guarantee when you actually sit down and think about it God’s blessings will far outnumber all those other things I’ve suggested, and many of them will be things that we normally just take for granted.
I thank God today for the countless blessings he gives to me each day.
