When we think of blessings from God, we often think they are things given to us that make us happy. God’s blessings to us are not based on money or only flow when everything is perfect in our worlds. God’s blessings are not always things that bring us feelings of contentment. Blessings are anything that help us build our relationship with God. They can come from trials we go through that push us to hold on to the greatest Savior we have in our lives.
1. What is a recent blessing you have had that causes you contentment?
2. What is a recent trial you have gone through that you can now view as a blessing?
Challenge: Try keeping a blessings journal, adding not just the blessings that bring you joy, but also the blessings you receive in ways you may never understand.
