COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS!

  Why is it so difficult to live in peace and why is it so hard to find contentment? Eric Hoffer said, “The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.” The bible tells us to, “Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.” (1Thess 5:16-18) Perhaps, counting our blessings and living in peace is so difficult because it’s easier to be mad, frustrated, and angry. In most cases, our disposition about our lives are skewed because we lack understanding. Helen Keller said, “I don’t want peace that passeth understanding. I want understanding which bringeth peace.” So today remember no matter what means no matter what! Understand that you are not the boss of you, God is the Boss and He is in control of your peace, blessings, and contentment.
