God's Wonderful Blessings

"The Lord has promised wonderful blessings." Numbers 10:29 NLT

God is still with us today just as He was in the days the Holy Bible was written. He never promised life would be easy. If life were easy, we wouldn't call on Him for help. If life were easy, we would be less thankful. If life were easy, we wouldn't know how to be humble. 

Our heavenly Father has promised to bless us abundantly. We can recognize our blessings in our good health, the meals we have every day, friends and family who love us and care for us. We have been blessed to have a Savior who provided a way, through the cross, for us to speak to God every day, who prays on our behalf every day, who pleas our case to our Father every day, who made it possible for us to enter heaven by simply believing in Him and having faith that we are saved. 

Blessings from God

When we allow the Spirit to take control of our minds, body, and soul, we understand these blessings. Just because life is dotted with problems and disappointments doesn't mean God has left us; it doesn't mean we are without blessings. If we learn to count our blessings instead of our problems, life becomes simpler and easier. 

I have an idea of what lies ahead for me as a get out of bed this morning. But I woke up thanking God for my multitude of blessings, thanking him for a day He has created just for me, praying that I handle any difficulties well and represent Him well.

In James 1:2-4 NLT, we know that even our problems (tests) are blessings. In these passages, James says, "Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing." 

As humans, we are built for endurance and molding (development). We seek change and challenges. So, why not accept the challenges that God gives us. He knows what will build that endurance and strengthen us for His use. Each day is a new opportunity for these types of blessings that God offers. Let your endurance grow.

Heavenly Father, I pray that I accept life's challenges today with humility that only You can provide. Help me to endure and to seek the blessings within the development that each problem or challenge brings with it. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

Praying for many blessings to be bestowed on you today,

Patricia

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u
