“All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.”  Deuteronomy 28:2

Are you thanking God daily for your blessings?  We are all very blessed in spite of current circumstances in our nation.  We sing the hymn, Count Your Many Blessings, but do we really listen to the words?  We should focus on those words as we face trials and obstacles in these uncertain days.  Look at the following words:           

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,

When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,

Count your many blessings, name them one by one,

And it will surprise you what the LORD hath done.

 

The billows certainly rage all around us and the times appear bleak.  We can easily become discouraged which makes us easy targets for the enemy. 

                When God blesses us, as He continually does, what is our response to His kindness toward us?  Do we keep it all to ourselves or do we share God’s kindness with others?  Sometimes we feel as though we can just bask in what God has done for us without any concern for others.  Yet, God so often blesses us so that we will be a blessing to others.  If you are discouraged or frustrated, take a few moments to remember the many blessings you have received.  You will be truly amazed at what God has done for you.  Then, go and share those blessings with someone else.

                On another note, we are looking forward to New Desire being back with us this Sunday morning.  Please make plans to be with us a little early (10:30) as we share in worship together.  We are praying that you are experiencing God’s blessing in many different ways. Also, please remember to pray for our nation as we are experiencing some very difficult days.

                                                                                                                                We love you,

                                                                                                                                Brad and Virginia
