Count Your Blessings, Not Your Worries

Count Your Blessings

That is much easier said than done.  When you used to have a cashflow and you’re lucky if you get a drip, worry kicks in.  When your wardrobe fights you and appears to be winning; yep, you’re going to worry.  When everything that could go wrong actually goes wrong, stress becomes your best friend. But through it all, look at everything is going right.  You woke up; you’re breathing; and you’re in your right mind is enough to get you started.

Even though you shouldn’t look at other what other people are doing, take a look at what they HAVE to do compare to what you HAVE to do.  When you realize you don’t have to work as hard to do what you want or need to do, can you really be mad? When all of your bills are paid and your bank account is close to “E”, is there room for complaining.  And, just knowing that God’s got your back no matter where you are in life….

I said all of that to say, as you look around and think you got it bad because things in your life have dwindled, just know that there is someone else worse off than you.
