Count Your Blessings

This past week I had a conversation with some kids and we got to talking about prayer.  One of them who is about 11 years old shared with me that he likes to count his blessings when he prays.  He shared with the group some of the blessings he gives thanks for.  It was a beautiful moment.  This moment of praise and testimony reminded me of Psalm 105:1 – 2.

Psalm 105:1  Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. 2 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonders.

It is good for us to count our blessings and to thank God for the things He has provided for us and for the people He has placed in our lives.  It is good for us to remember that just as He has provided for us and blessed us in the past, we can expect Him to provide for us and bless us now and in the future.  Giving thanks not only strengthens our faith but it also sows seeds of faith in others as they hear us tell of the goodness and faithfulness of God.

About pastorpstephens

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
