Where Is My Blessing?
Earthly blessings are temporary; they can all be taken away. And oh what pain and disappointment that can bring. Job’s blessings all disappeared in one fateful day. I, too, had a wonderful life that was stripped away within seconds. My husband was gone and my dreams were shattered.
And yet, in the midst of those painful days that followed, I began to experience God’s truest and richest blessings. My faith was growing stronger than I had experienced before. I felt a deeper love than I had ever known. I began a more intimate walk than I could explain. It was just us. Jesus and me...on the road of understanding, discovering and healing. My trials grounded my faith in ways that prosperity and abundance never could.
We all long to know that God is for us and with us and in us. Yes, great relationships, financial wealth, good health and maybe even a bucket list trip are all wonderful gifts that we can thank God for, BUT they are not His “greatest” blessings.
Always remember, that God’s GREATEST blessings ALWAYS start and rest in God Himself and they will always draw us closer to Him and the eternal. When we have and understand that, we have everything and are truly truly blessed through it all.
James 1:17 ~
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change."
