As the song writer says, “when upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed, when you are discouraged thinking all is lost, count your many blessings, name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.”
Not only will it surprise you, it will renew your hope and encourage you to keep trusting Him.
Forget about all of life’s issues stressing you out at the moment and just realize how blessed you are regardless.
“He forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases.
He redeems you from death
and crowns you with love and tender mercies.
He fills your life with good things.
Your youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
The Lord is compassionate and merciful,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
He will not constantly accuse you,
nor remain angry forever.
He does not punish you for all your sins;
he does not deal harshly with you, as you deserve.
For His unfailing love toward those who fear him
is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
He has removed your sins as far from you
as the east is from the west.
The Lord is like a father to his children,
tender and compassionate to those who fear him.”
(Culled from Psalms 103)
Ah! “Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things He does for me.” (Psalms 103:1)
Even when things don’t look so good, may we never forget that God is good, that His plans for us are of good and all He allows, is for our ultimate good.
May we never forget that God loves us, He’s with us and He won’t fail us.
May we never forget how blessed we are, regardless.
