Counting your countless blessings
My life is great. I am so thankful for everything in my life. I have listed some things that most of us can relate to. I think if we make our own full list, it will never end as God blesses us everyday!
I thank God for the gift of faith. Without faith, my life would be empty.
I thank God for the free and safe country I live and have lived in. There are so many people who wake up in the morning unsure if they will be killed or end up in jail by evening.
I thank God for grad life. I know it is tough, but I think about how many people would give everything to be in my place? Many people work much harder than me for much lesser rewards.
I thank God for good parents. They love me dearly and despite their humble backgrounds gave and continue to give me everything they can.
I thank God for my brothers. They were, are, and will always be there for me.
I thank God for my friends. There are so many people who are alone in this world.
I thank God for great health and an able body. Isn’t it awesome feeling to run like the wind or to soak in a sunset?
I thank God for giving me food, clothing, and shelter. Think about the time when you missed lunch for some reason, or forgot your coat on a cold windy day, or if you had to sleep at a railway station.
I thank God for keeping me safe from natural disasters. Picture the earthquake in Haiti, the tsunami in Indonesia, the hurricane in New Orleans or the floods in Pakistan.
I thank God for the ample water around. Is there anything more necessary, fun and refreshing than water?
I am blessed and I thank God that I realize it.
