God’s gracious gifts

In addition to the blessings and gifts found in God’s Word -He gives us blessings in daily life, in every moment of every day…in every breath, in the quiet moments with our spouse and in the loud moments as we cheer on our kids,  every ray of sun and drop of rain, opportunities to minister to others, every trial, and every triumph- large and small. Over the past 3 days, I have counted over 70 blessings. By no means am I bragging about this awesome endowment…but GOD IS GOOD!  I’d love to share them all, but instead, I’ll encourage you to count some of your own.

Have you counted your blessings today?
