Count Your Blessings

One great way to overcome being down or a negative attitude is to list everything you are thankful for. I started my list and plan to keep coming back to it to add more. Here is what I have so far:

Count Your Blessings


  1. My Heavenly Father, my Lord Jesus Christ and His precious Holy Spirit!
  2. Salvation! Real and free. Praise God!
  3. Forgiveness! I so desperately need.
  4. Eternal life – my future home in Heaven!
  5. The Word of God. Truth right in my hands.
  6. The freedom to come boldly to the throne of the Living God in prayer and He listens!
  7. God loves me! He really loves me.
  8. The Holy Spirit working through me.
  9. Freedom to worship Him, pray, share with others.
  10. My awesome husband who also loves God.
  11. My wonderful teen-age son who is a great blessing.
  12. Two moms on earth and two dads in heaven who love us and love God.
  13. Good relationships with all our family.
  14. Wonderful sisters, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews. Each one is a separate blessing. Which makes 31 blessings right here.
