How many blessings can you count in one week? ?

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | How many blessings can you count in one week? ?

COVID-19 is still very active in the world right now. It’s a difficult season for many, but some have discovered a secret weapon: counting their blessings every day.

It may sound simple or even naive, but the practice of looking for blessings in the midst of a dark season is powerful and effective. 

Have you been counting your blessings? 

The Bible teaches us that “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” (James 1:17, NKJV)  

In order to count your blessings, you will need to find them. There’s an old Sunday school song I’ve sung a thousand times: “Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your blessings, see what God has done.” This song always reminds me that gratitude is a choice. 

Another song that has always inspired me was sung by Andraé Crouch, the great gospel singer. It is entitled “To God Be The Glory.” 

Please take a few moments and listen to these two songs today. Let them go deep into your soul and spirit. God is so good. He loves you, and He’s surrounded you with so many blessings. You may need to work a little to find them, but when you do, underline them and repeat them.

I was recently in Jerusalem with my eldest grandson. We had the privilege of going on a mini archeological dig that was designed for tourists like us. It was a blast! But then my back started hurting, and the rocks and dirt kept adding up without us finding anything at all. All of a sudden, my grandson, Luke, found a dirt-encrusted, round object. It didn’t look significant, but we decided to get it checked out by the experts. Eureka!!! It was a 2,000-year-old coin. 

Just like that dig, blessings are often hidden in the dark, encrusted, hard times of life. 

So do you want to go treasure hunting this week? Find, highlight, and repeat your blessings. You will begin to notice that your attitude, and your results, will change.

Because you’re a miracle.

    I thank God for all his blessings which are new every day. I am able to find food to eat , i can offer a word of encouagement to my neighbour, i am able to move my limbs and do good deeds daily. Thank you for reminding us that joy and peace comes from giving to others but the best is giving our hearts to Jesus. God bless you.

      Today I decided to leave home which is not a normal routine on my day off and take a friend shopping. Because of the fact that today is/was Black Friday the traffic was horrendous and I got nervous and almost had at least by memory count, two serious close call accidents. God always take the wheel and I know that those close call accidents were stopped immediately by him and knew that he sent my guardian angel to ensure that I like every other driver was guided along the shopping route . I am living testimony today of receiving more than one blessing that allowed me to say thank you God for being present in all my trials and tribulations that could have been disastrous or fatal today. I know my redemer lives, he woke me up and spoke to me today.
