"God's will is that the cross always be magnified - that Christ get glory and thanks and honor for every good thing in our lives and every bad thing that God turns for good." - John Piper
As I reflect on this past year, I know that God has carried our family through many trying times...it has been relatively a difficult long year for us and we have been through many ups and downs. But, we are thankful. Thankful to the Lord for His blessings and provision each day. He has been our daily bread!
With this in mind, I have started a new blog. This blog is a place where I will be writing and counting the blessings and events of our life over this next year. I can then look back upon the year and reflect on the many blessings that God has performed in our lives...the answers to prayer....the steps He has taken us towards....the hills He has helped us climb....the deep waters He has helped us to tread through....His joy and peace!
Here is why I am counting my blessings:
Counting Blessings1. The Bible tells us to be thankful (Colossians 3:15)
2. Writing down blessings is a great way of reminding myself that God is working in my life and in the lives of people around me. Perspective.
So, you can now join me in this process too. Start a blessing blog of your own. It is always a good way to count your blessings ---to reflect back on God's goodness in a practical, tangible way.
