A thought by Les Parrott, (2012-08-02) from his book, You're Stronger Than You Think: The Power to Do What You Feel You Can't (p. 134). Tyndale House Publishers. Kindle Edition.
I could share right now ten blessings in my life. I would have no problem doing that but I know that that wouldn’t benefit you. My blessings are different than your blessings.
I do have problems in my life and I deal with them and strive to solve them but I don’t dwell on them or count them. That would be discouraging to me. I find it more beneficial to look at my blessings. I find that is where my power comes for me to face my problems because I see how God is blessing and not Satan is defeating.
As I said, I do deal with my potential problems before they become major problems. To me solving is better than sobbing. Sobbing gets me nowhere except defeated. Counting blessings keeps me encouraged. It’s all in the focus. Solve the problems you can and count your blessings.
So what are ten of your blessings?
