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.

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

Let's Talk Simple!

My Simple Dream For years, I have had a simple dream of helping other women - mostly in the realm of crafting and transcribing audio and video files. As a woman who is advancing in years - and I'm proud of it - I want to expand that help in other areas. In 2020, at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, I started www.SimplyMakingLife.com . Suddenly, women were being thrown into a world they were unfamiliar with and didn't have a clue how to handle their new life.  I, on the other hand, was well equipped to handle that type of world that had to shelter at home. I was a stay-at-home mom for over 20 years. I homeschooled both of my sons during that time - one for only a few years and the other from Kindergarten through high school. I worked from home and figured out what was important to do at the moment and what could wait. I have also taken online courses and have self-taught myself new skills along this, now, 30-year journey. I learned shortcuts in life that worked just as well a
