BLESSINGS WE MAY NOT RECOGNIZE

BLESSINGS WE MAY NOT RECOGNIZE

 

1.  If you own a Bible, you are abundantly blessed –   about 1/3 of the world does not have access to one.

 

2.  If you wake up each morning with more health   than illness, you are blessed to rise and shine, to live and to serve in a new   day.

 

3.  If you have anyone on the planet, just one   person that loves you and listens to you; count this as a blessing.

 

4.  If you can freely attend a church meeting   without fear, then you are more blessed than over 1/3 of the world.

 

5.    If you have a yearning in your heart   to parent a child, you are blessed because you still desire what you cannot   see.

 

6.  If you pray today or any day, you are blessed   because you believe in God’s willingness to hear your prayer.

 

7.  If you pray for someone else, you are blessed   because you want to help others also.

 

8.  If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes   on your back, a roof over your head, and a place to sleep; all at the same   time;  you are rich in this world;

 

9.  If you have a brother or sister in Christ that   will pray with you and for you, you benefit from a spiritual unity, bond, and   agreement, which the gates of hell cannot stand against.

 

10.  If you have any earthly family that even   halfway loves you and supports you, you are blessed beyond measure.

 

11.  If you attend a church with a church family   that offers you one word of encouragement, you are blessed with some form of   fellowship.

 

12.  If you have money in the bank, in your wallet,   or some spare change in a dish someplace you are among the world’s   wealthy.

 

13.  If you can go to bed each night, knowing that   God loves you, you are blessed beyond measure.

 

14.  If you try each day to imitate our Lord Jesus   Christ for even a minute, you are blessed because you show a willingness to   grow up in Him.

 

15.  If you can read this message, you are more   blessed than about 1/3 of the world who cannot read at all.

 

16.  If you have never had to endure the hardship   and agony battle, imprisonment, or torture, you are blessed in indescribable   measure.

 

17.  If you have a voice to sing His praises, a   voice to witness God’s love, and a voice to share the gospel, you are blessed.   About 1/3 of the world do not even know who the one true God is.

 

18.   If you can hold someone’s hand, hug   another person, touch someone on the shoulder, you are blessed because you can   offer God’s healing touch.

 

19.  If you can share a word of encouragement with   someone else, and do it with His love in your heart, you are blessed because   you have learned how to give.

 

20.  If you have the conviction to stand fast upon   His Word and His promises, no matter what, you are blessed because you are   learning patience, endurance, and tenacity.

 

21.  If you hold up your head with a smile on your   face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because most people can, but many   will not.

 

May God Bless You And Keep You Safe.
