Thankful Thursday- Count Your Blessings


Count your blessings, name them one by one. Wow, if I did that, I would lose count, actually, I cannot count that high. God is so good to me, everyday of my life. I am so thankful for my Saviour, and His precious love. I thank Him for my salvation, for my life, for my lovebug, for my family, for my friends, for my church family, for meeting my every need, whether it be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. I thank Him for hearing me, when no one else does. I thank Him for touching my heart daily in new ways. For accepting me, when others sometimes don't. For thinking I am beautiful, for carrying me, when I cannot carry myself. I thank Him for always being faithful to me, never breaking His promises. Always answering my hearts call, never being to busy. Thank You Lord, for all of Your blessings upon my life.

Yes, we can not really count our blessings from God. As for me He always blesses me every second, every minute, every hour and always.

You have such a thankful heart, Denise! Thank God for His many blessings upon you. How true that when we try to count our blessings, we lost count! God is so good to us.

May He continue to shower His love, mercies and blessings upon you and family. Thanks for your prayers and encouragements. Take care and God bless you!

Yes, we must count our blessings. You are a blessing to so many of us Denise. Thank you for all your kind comments on Heart Choices. And by the way, I love the larger font size. I can read it so much better. That happens as we age; LOL.

Love you,
Debbie

Like you, I have more blessings than I can count. I try to remember this when things aren't going the way I want them to. I try to remember that things happen when God wants them to-his timing not mine. Thank you for the post.
