Count Your Blessings

Key Verse

“If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.” Psalm 139:18

Text — Psalm 139: 13- 18


Sara’s mom did something wonderful for her last year. She had therefore decided to continue the tradition because of the positive effect it had on her and the entire family. Mom got her two empty jars and labelled one – prayer requests and the other testimonies. She told her that whenever anything bothered her mind, instead of complaining or apportioning blame, she should just write it on a piece of paper and drop it in the empty jar for prayer request, and whenever God answers such prayers or gives her something to testify about, she should drop it in the other jar.

By the end of the year, the testimony jar was almost full with just a few requests in the other. She poured out the testimonies and read them one after the other. She was amazed at how much she had been blessed of God within that short time. We should learn to thank God even for small things. God is bound to do more for us when we appreciate Him for the ones we already received.
