Thankful Thursday

It has been a great day, my dh took the final test and passed
now he has the hands on test and will have his passengers
license, he can drive any vehicle that hold passengers now,
mostly will be for driving the Church Bus. SO Praise God,
we all are so very blessed, read these few things and see
if you agree, you are truly blessed of God. Amen...

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who won't survive the week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 20 million people around the world.

If you attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than almost three billion people in the world.

If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read anything at all.

You are so blessed in ways you may never even know.

If we tried to count the blessings our loving Heavenly Father bestows upon us daily we would find it an impossible task our blessings are to numerous to count.

How dare we ever complain that we are poor, persecuted, hard done by, or anything else, we have a roof over our heads, a few dollars in the bank, a little money in our purse, hot water for a shower, food in the refrigerator, etc etc. We are the richest 8% in the world, even the poorest of us. We can go to church and worship our awesome God in complete freedom. We have never experienced true persecution in any shape or form. Let us never forget or take it for granted, our Father has blessed us so greatly, we should be forever grateful for all the wonderful blessings that Father pours upon us daily, and we should be constantly thanking Him who has given us so very much.

Now Have a wonderfully blessed evening, and KNOW you are blessed of the blessed.

Just one of HIS flock, Barbara

Just what I needed to hear my sweet friend!
Hope you have a lovely evening!

So very, very true, Miss Barbara! I agree with "farming on faith," just what I needed! : )

Thanks for sharing!

It is also good to stop and count our blessings. I work with people who are often very sick, and that is a constant reminder of how blessed I am with relatively good health, a job, a husband who loves me and so much more!

Truly, we are blessed. And we need to thank Him each day for those blessings. Our nation is finding out what it is like NOT to be a favored nation -- we need to pray that we keep our religious freedoms, too.

Very well done. We take our blessings for granted entirely too often. For some reason the 'little things' you've mentioned don't count as blessings.

A poignant reminder of just how blessed we are.
