Day 12: Blessed Beyond


Are you THANKFUL that you are BLESSED?

 “You’re BLESSED

when you’re at the end of your rope.

With less of you there is more of GOD and HIS rule.

 You’re BLESSED

when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you.

Only then can you be embraced by the ONE most dear to you.

 You’re BLESSED

when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less.

That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.

 You’re BLESSED

when you’ve worked up a good appetite for GOD.

HE'S food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.

 You’re BLESSED when you care.

At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for.

 You’re BLESSED

when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right.

Then you can see GOD in the outside world.

 You’re BLESSED

when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight.

That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in GOD'S family.

 You’re BLESSED

when your commitment to GOD provokes persecution.

The persecution drives you even deeper into GOD'S kingdom.

 Not only that—count yourselves

BLESSED

every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me.

What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable.

You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don’t like it, I do!

And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company.

My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble" (Matthew 5:3-12 MSG)

Can you now say

THANK YOU LORD for BLESSING me?

"BLESSINGS" (listen to the song below)
