Here we go!
How is counting your blessings going so far this week? At the men’s breakfast this morning we were sharing topics for prayer. Ben Noid asked that we praise God for his blessings to us. There is someone who was paying attention in church! He said that he has written many of his blessings down in his memoirs—over 100 pages worth! --- That kind of puts our soul training exercise in perspective! Remember the idea is to make a list of 10 blessings and then add to it each day, getting up to 50 or more.
If you are struggling, here are some of mine to help prime the pump:
God’s existence, dark chocolate, the Wasatch Front, smiles, Jesus, love, recovering from illness, the Bible, scientific discoveries, chicken parm, music, friends, hiking---
As you make your list, use that time to be in prayer, thanking God for providing these blessings to you.
This Sunday we will be celebrating God’s generosity—I hope you can join us!
You are a blessing to me,
