Count Your Blessings
Sometimes in order to focus properly, we need to take just one step back.
To clearly see just what we have, and not the things we lack.
Some people must sleep in the streets, and you worry about a bigger house.
Many people suffer loneliness; say you're not happy with your spouse.
There are those that die of hunger, while there's food upon your table.
Many people can't even walk, and you have your health.
So many people are out of work, and you worry about your wealth.
You want shoes for every outfit, then there's the man who has no feet.
Designer clothes and a brand new car, or your life won't be complete.
Was your child born a mongrel, or was she/he born defect free?
All your children still alive, or did their lives end tragically?
Even so, open your eyes to the things you have, and count your blessings everyday.
Just as the Lord gave them to you, he can surely take them away!
Remember: You're too blessed to be stressed!
The Lord will provide all your needs!
Thank God for small mercies and May God continue to bless you.
Draw near to God, he will draw near to you. James 4:8
