“You have put more joy and rejoicing in my heart than [they know] when their wheat and new wine have yielded abundantly.”
There is an old hymn that goes:
♪♫ Count your blessings! ♪
♫ Name them one by one ♪
♪♫ Count your many blessings ♪
♫ And see what God has done! ♪♫ ♥
It has often been a great reminder to me over the years to look at all we have been given in light of what we feel we may be lacking. It is so easy to grow discouraged and discontent at times. But if we would only turn our focus onto all we’ve been given, I believe we will discover, as the Psalmist did, that our blessings are far too numerous to count!
Heavenly Father, once more as I begin this day adding up all that You have blessed us with, I am in awe of Your great love for us and humbly wonder as the Psalmist did: what is man that you are mindful of him?
