Count Your Blessings

Though the fig tree does not bud 
and there are no grapes on the vines, 

though the olive crop fails 
and the fields produce no food, 
though there are no sheep in the pen 
and no cattle in the stalls, 
yet I will rejoice in the LORD, 
I will be joyful in God my Savior. 
Habakkuk 3:17

Oftentimes we complain about many things that are happening in our life. We think that others are more fortunate than we are.  If we would only take time to look at the things we take for granted, we will realize that we are so blessed. 

Things that you should be grateful for:
  1.  God loves you - so live a life that is pleasing to Him. Glorify His name in all that you do.
  2. you woke up to a brand new day
  3. you have a family that loves you - don't forget to show that you love them back
  4. you have friends that you could lean on - show that you are not there only at times when you need them
  5. you have a job; at times you feel your job sucks, but at the end of the day, that job provides for your family
  6. there's food in the table
  7. you have a roof over your head - size does not matter
  8. you have clothes; don't mind the brand 
  9. you have the choice to use your money to buy gadgets, to travel, or to invest
  10. you are able to pay for your debts
  11. you are healthy - and if you are not, you have a means to make it better
  12. there's a penny in the pocket - and a cash in the bank for emergency
  13. mistakes, challenges and problems - because you will learn from them and become a stronger and better person
  14. detractors to keep you grounded
  15. all the people that you meet for teaching you life's lessons
  16. technologies to connect people and families - use it properly
  17. you have the choice on how to live your life - so choose wisely!

You are blessed.. be grateful!
