Count Your Blessings


Count Your BlessingsAuthor Unknown

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.

Count Your Blessings


Something that I don't do enough, not even nearly enough is count my blessings.  God has been so good to me and many times I seem to slap Him in the face and cry out when things aren't going exactly the way I want them too.  He has given me so much and all I seem to be saying is "GIVE ME MORE, LORD AND MAKE IT YESTERDAY".  I sound like the two year old in the store that everyone dreads to see or hear.  No patience, no love, no compassion  OH LORD I DO NEED HELP.  Maybe my prayer should be "Quite down fears, worries go to sleep.  I am going to Praise my Lord for what He has done for me!"
