Count All Your Blessings!
This is one of the most powerful things that you can do..
As I looked at what would most help those who follow me today..
I thought about how this is a world of many problems and challenges..
It’s not easy sometimes to put your focus on those problems..
We do of course have to find solutions..
When we make our entire focus on the problem itself..
It’s hard to really think of solutions..
The first thing to do is to step to the other side..
Try thinking of yourself outside of the problem and looking down at it..
Doesn’t it appear smaller when you do?
For instance I can tell a personal story..
My Son and my daughter in love found themselves in a very difficult and scary situation..
I will not go into details here..
Lets just say that they had a serious problem..
And I am proud to say.. they also sought a solution rather than staying immersed in the problem..
They found they had to call me.. and I was able to help them with the solution..
Yes sometimes the solution involves other people..
Sometimes it means you must reach out..
Sometimes it means you have to let go of the “Solution” that you thought was the answer..
Sometimes you just have to count the blessings that you do have..
We have a song we sing..
“Count your blessings.. name them one by one..,
Count your many blessing..
See what GOD has done..
Count your blessings..
Name them one by one…
How many blessing (or great things in our lives) do we down play,
Take for granted and don’t realize they have come to us..
Usually quietly while we were so wrapped up in our problems..
That thankfulness or gratefulness changes the vibration, and thought process..
And usually helps us become more open to new and creative solutions to problems!
