One day last week my wife asked (told) me to go to the grocery
Store. She started telling me the things she needed. I knew
there were too many things for me to remember so I found a
paper and pencil. A dozen eggs, milk, pepper, napkins, celery,
a bag of carrots and a loaf of bread. No problem. I made it to
the grocery store, found a cart and started shopping. I have
been there several times so I knew exactly where things were
located. I gathered all the items, paid and carried them home.
She looked at my list, checked everything off, smiled and said
I did a good job. She did everything but pat me on the head.
Later on that night I got ready for bed. I stretched out with a
sigh and reached for my Bible. I opened it at random as I
usually do before I fall asleep. I looked and started reading
Psalms 103. The first 5 verses reminded me of my grocery
list. It was a lists of God’s blessings. Verse 3 says He forgives
all our sins and heals our diseases. Verse 4 says He redeems
our life from the pit and crowns us with love and compassion.
Verse 5 says He satisfies your desires with good things so
that your youth is renewed like the Eagle’s. These 5 blessings
are wonderful. We should count our blessings every day and
thank God for each one. Do you count your blessings?
