As my 30 days of Blessings ends I am reminded that no matter what journey we are currently walking there is always a blessing to be found. There is always something to be thankful for.
It’s been a month of remembering that if I keep my focus on my Father and not on my circumstances then finding the blessings are easy. Even if my world is changing or falling apart God never changes. If God never changes then His character is always a blessing.
O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! Ps 34:8
So what did I learn? What do I walk away with by purposefully looking for the blessings in each day? I see that my life is good.
Life is good because I am looking for the good. When we look for the blessings we will see the blessings.
For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good. Ps 107:9
I could focus on the daily pain I live with, but if I choose to see the blessings of the day I begin to see that God is my strength. He is with me. He is my healer, my refuge and my sustainer.
I could focus on those places in my life where there is loss. But again focusing on God I begin to see that He is my comforter. I see He will never leave me or forsake me. He love for me is everlasting.
When we focus on God, who He and what He has done we can’t help but count the blessings of our life.
But as for me, the nearness of God is my good ; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works. Ps 73:28
Bottom line is this, I have much more than I ever dreamed or imagined. I have more than I could ever possibly earn or deserve. Please understand I am not just talking material things. While my needs are always met the great blessings come in form of all that God has done for me.
He saved me. He loved me enough to send His Son to die. He watches over me, guides me, speaks to me and helps me understand His word.
Do you see it? Life is good because God is good. He is good all the time. He is good to me in all that He does and all He is.
You are good and do good; Teach me Your statutes.
