Count Your Blessings

17 Jul

How shall I make a return to the Lord
for all the good he has done for me?
The cup of salvation I will take up,
and I will call upon the name of the Lord.  (Ps 116:12-13)

There is something that we must always remember:  it is the Lord who does everything for us.  Without Him, we are nothing.

Therefore, when we think about our station in life, we must remember that it was God who brought us to this day and who will see us through the next.  There is nothing that we can do on our own that will ensure an everlasting life with God.  It is God who sustains us and God who grants us an invitation to life eternal.

The sooner that we remember that, the better off we will be.

Because remembering that will shape our lives, it will guide our decisions, it will help our choices.

How can we make a return to the Lord for all that He has done for us?

Remembering Him and calling upon Him for guidance.  That is the best return that we can make.

FAITH ACTION:  Count your blessings this day.  Remember that it was God who brought those blessings to you.  Thank God and ask God to direct your day.  Be at peace.
