Week 9 - Count your Blessings

I watched Facing The Giants this weekend and the line "We will give praise when we win, we will give praise when we loose" really struck deep with me. No matter the situation, no matter how grim life can get, there is ALWAYS something to praise God for. Sometimes we can get focused on a problem we end up with blinkers on and can't see the good all around us. Once we step back and see the whole situation, the problem often becomes insignificant.

Verses : Psalm 128:2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.

Prayer : Thank God for all the blessings and provisions in your life. Ask Him to forgive you where you have claimed His work as your own and to show you where you have been blinded to His blessings.

Application : Count your blessings. Journal your blessings and keep a watchful eye this week to see all the good things that God is doing in your life. Keep a journal of praise. When times get tough you will have a quick place to go to see the wonders that God does in your life. & share the joy here, It's not boastful to share His works :D
