Ruby Mae, here! Hope everyone had a blessed weekend and are excited to discover what God has for them in the week ahead. I know I am!
Speaking if Blessings, Let me share a little thought I had last night. I live on a piece of land out in the country. There’s no light pollution, no street lights on or around our property at all. Because of this, it’s unreal how many stars you can see at night out here. I love to stargaze as often as I gat the chance.
Anywho, let me ask you a question. Have you ever tried to count the stars? It’s impossible! But still, I know I’m not the only one to attempt this task.
I found myself trying to count the stars last night and then all of a sudden the song, “Count Your Blessings”, fluttered through my mind. I stopped to think. Here I am doing trying to count something innumerable and God’s telling me to count my blessings instead. But, my blessings are just as innumerable as the stars in the sky!
So, for each star I counted, I thanked God for a blessing He’s given me. I think I’ve found a new favorite nighttime hobby. For God’s blessings are many and so are the stars, you can spend your lifetime counting them and you’ll never find an end. But you’ll find that the more time you spend counting and thanking God for your blessings, the happier your life will become. Because the more time you spend thank God, the less time Ya have to complain about little things that just might turn into blessings themselves.
So the next time you’re feeling down, look to the stars and remember, God’s blessed you with blessings as innumerable as the stars above.
Many Blessings To You All!
Until next time,
-Ruby Mae O’Dell
