FOCUS ON YOUR BLESSINGS NOT ON YOUR BURDENS
EVERY DAY IS A BLESSING
More often than not, we find ourselves focusing on what we failed to achieve while overlooking all the good things we have been able to achieve. Every single day, we find ourselves focusing on our failures instead of projecting our energy towards success. And yes, that marks the beginning of our continued failures in life. Brethren, you need to focus on your blessings, not your burden.
Every day is a blessing in itself
Instead of spending sleepless nights worrying about life, you need to understand that some people did not even have the chance to be alive. You do not need to look further in order to see your blessings; they are just at your doorstep. Life itself is a blessing! So many people wanted to see this day but were not able to. For that reason, once you wake up every morning, you need to count that as your first blessing. And yes, so many people wake up but never get to go back to their beds at night. For that reason, when you go back to your bed at night, you also need to thank God for it. Instead of worrying about that interview you failed, that job you lost or that friend who failed you; just thank God for the day.
You don’t have to win a lottery for it to be a blessing; count even the smallest ones
It is funny how we never notice some small things in our lives which are big blessings. We forget that blessings come in all sizes. And yes, the size does not make a blessing lesser. Instead of worrying about how to buy that big mansion or that luxury car, count it as a blessing that your kids are faring well in school. So many people have all the money but lack peace of mind. Instead of complaining about how hard your life has become, you should be thanking God that you have your health. In a nutshell, we as Christians need to count our blessings no matter how small they seem to be.
Thank God for that simple blessing and He will bring more
It is funny how some of us promise to thank God if he blesses us with what we have been praying for yet we never thank Him for what He has given to us so far. We need to be sincere on this fellow Christians! Come to think of it; if you don’t thank God for the gift of life, what makes you think that you will thank Him when He gives you a house? Brothers and sisters in Christ; Let us thank God for what He has blessed us with and, surely, more blessings will come our way!
By counting your blessings, you invite more
Did you know that positive energy attracts positive things in life? Brethren, when you think of all the good things in life, good things will keep trickling in. When you focus on the burden, you will definitely get engulfed in more burdens. For that reason, think of all the blessing in your life and God will keep more coming your way. After all, if you cannot acknowledge the blessings in your life right now, you might never acknowledge them even when you have what you always prayed for. Just look around, you are blessed.
