Blessings don’t always appear as a beautifully wrapped gift. Oftentimes, it appears small in size, and you may not think much of it, until you open it and realize how big it is! Somehow, that small gift, contains everything you need, all you need is a little perspective, and that perspective begins with a heart of gratitude.
I woke up feeling grateful, and it didn’t take an unexpected blessing; it took reflection and perspective. God is so good. I woke up this morning, hungry. Then, I thought about how blessed I am to be able to fix myself something to eat when I’m hungry. That’s two blessings in itself, being able to eat when I’m hungry, and being healthy enough to prepare my own meal!
Good God, I feel a shout! Then, I went deeper than that, because the blessing doesn’t stop there. I woke up; oh that’s a huge blessing. I woke up in my right mind, another huge blessing that I do not take for granted. Not only was I in my right mind, but a roof was over my head.
I have a bed to sleep comfortably in all night. God protected me, all night. He protected my family, all night. I could run around my neighborhood, shouting right now, but I won’t, because I might scare the neighbors. Anyway, I could go on and on about how blessed I am.
I have clean running water, and all of my needs are met. When we reflect on a blessing, if we look at that blessing closely, there’s so many blessings within that single blessing. I dare you to try it, and you will know exactly what I mean. Look at a blessing you’d consider small. Let’s just say, you found a dime outside.
The dime may not hold much value, but it’s ten cents more than what you had, and it could start a piggy bank that grows into the thousands and someday, fund your small business, or it could be used for a rainy day. But even before we think about how that dime could bless our future, we can change our perspective, and see how it blesses us now. Finding the dime in the first place means, you can see! My God! It’s just so many blessings within a single blessing, and even small blessings contains huge gifts.
There’s always a blessing within a blessing, and all it takes is one blessing, to help us see how prosperous we are. It is God’s will that we prosper and be in good health, and being the recipient of God’s blessings is a daily reminder of how good God is, and how He takes care of us. We should never take anything for granted, and whatever blessings we do have, we should share them with those who are less fortunate. Let’s all learn to look at blessings, great and small, with a grateful heart. For when we are grateful to God for everything we have, we shall not want.
