Sundayvotion: Count your Blessings

"Count your blessings" is one of the hyms I love to sing during worship service in our church. This hymn is wonderfully written by Johnson Oatman, Jr. Every time this song is sang in the church, I am reminded to be grateful and thankful for all that I receive. 

Sometimes, with the trials that come our way, our vision to see the good side of life is blocked by all the negative things happening around us. That makes us not see and appreciate the smaller things we enjoy in life. Let me share few of my favorite lines of the song:

When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.  
Count your blessings, name them one by one;
Count your blessings, see what God hath done;
Count your blessings, name them one by one;
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.

As many would say, "count your blessings, not the bad things". It is only when we count our blessings: big or small, that we can have joy and contentment in life. What's are the blessings on your list today? :)
