As you know I have gotten some news lately that did not make me a happy camper, I need surgery, any time one has surgery it is a big deal, no matter how minor or how many surgeries the Surgeons have done, only God's directive guiding hand, helping the Surgeon will make this surgery go well, and God alone will do the healing, so after a pity party I started thinking about all the blessings that I do have, and know what, there is no room left for self pity or for thinking negative thoughts, God is still on the Throne and he still loves me and will care for me no matter what I have to go though. Here is a good inspirational poem I found let it bless you, and keep your mind on him:
Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings. Thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.
Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible. Thank you, Lord , that I can see. Many are blind.
Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising. Thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.
Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned, tempers are short, and my children are so loud. Thank you, Lord, for my family. There are many who are lonely.
Even though our breakfast table never looks like the picture in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced. Thank you, Lord, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry.
Even though the routine of my job often is monotonous. Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.
Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my circumstances were not so modest. Thank you, Lord, for life.
This was a real blessing to me, a friend told me to do this, and I sure am not above listening to my friends when I know they are surely right, so I decided to write on one side of my paper all the blessings I have in my life__On the other side I wrote all the things that make feel bad, you know what, my blessings side out numbered the feel bad side 100 to 10, amen, and I thank you lord for all the blessings you give to me.. So many people are so bad off these days, as I thought all I have, and all I am, how can I ever complain, I should be down on my knees constantly thanking my blessed Jesus, for saving me, and for giving me true and eternal life, in him there is no condemnation, he made me righteous, and I can stand in the presence of a Holy God wrapped in Christ's righteousness, and come before him as his child. Oh my word, thank you Lord thank you for all my trials and blessings, and may this be a blessing to you reader, and my friend, only through the power of God can we rejoice in the hard times, but he is still God in the Valley, and lets praise him there as well on the Mountain top, always remember when you are on the mountain top, you are about to go down the other side into a valley, but he keeps us safe, and he is with us every step of the way. He is my Shepherd, he is my Saviour, and I will not fear what man or circumstances will do to me. Now my friend have a wonderful Monday, rejoice in Jesus, and claim all his wonderful promises for your own. God bless, and I thank you for visiting me, and sitting a spell here, letting me talk freely and openly with you, it sure is nice to have friends you can pray with, and talk to about anything.
Hugs ♥ Blessings
