For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD; I sing for joy at what your hands have done. -Psalm 92:4 (NIV)
Have you ever stopped to think of the continuous stream of God’s blessings that you’re swimming in? Or all His blessings that you’ve been buoyed by through the years to get you to where you are today?
It’s truly amazing when we take a break from our hectic, stressful lives to enjoy the air He gives us…the people He puts around us…all the “little” things we forget make our lives possible.
If you’re going through relatively smooth times, you can easily see many of His blessings, because you can see abundance before you. But there are still so many unseen blessings He works on your behalf.
If you’re going through some trying times, it can be even harder to find blessings, because your view is being clouded by your circumstance.
No matter where you are now, re-center yourself on Jesus. He clears all things up. He puts everything in perspective. And, He is the ultimate perspective changer.
The fact that you’re upright and reading this now is a testament to many, many blessings He’s woven together for you to be where you are right at this moment. And, no matter your circumstance, this point you’re at is on the way to even better things.
The Lord is so good, and we sing His praises always, because (among other reasons) He is always constant in our lives, carrying us through all our times–good and bad. Take heart, fellow traveler, for He will continue to carry us to eternity in His presence as well.
