Count Blessings to Claim Blessings

When things don’t seem to be going your way,
when your prayers don’t seem to be answered
and your goal seems out of reach,
the best thing to do is to count your blessings.
You may not have met that great love of your life yet,
but isn’t some other part of your life working?
You may have financial pressures,
or be facing tough decisions,
but surely you have things to be grateful for.
How many times have you been rescued from danger?
Think about all the times some unforeseen assistance
got you out of trouble.
Without this breath, you wouldn’t even be here.
Counting the blessings in your past
and the gifts of today helps build your faith.
Take what Spirit has done in one area of your life
as proof that Divine Love will Provide for you
in all the other areas as well.
Count your blessings to claim your blessings!
