Sony’s Thoughts: We Are So Blessed!
This past week, I have been thinking of how blessed I am. God never said, “Come to Me and you will never have a care.” He never said life would be all ease but He did say, “Come unto Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
It’s when I take my eyes off Him that I lose sight of just how blessed I am but the joy that floods my heart when I think of Him is stronger than I can begin to describe. It makes me understand why Jacob would cling to Him declaring, “I won’t let You go until You bless me” but my cry is, “I won’t let You go because I don’t want to walk through life without Your continual blessing!”
Are you depressed and discouraged, or do you have that “joy unspeakable and full of glory”? Let’s make sure we are being faithful to daily count our blessings. As we do, the joy will overflow.
