1-2-3-4…and, so on!

“For God, who said, ‘Light shall shine out of darkness,’ is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6

Sometimes, we need to count our blessings. There’s no denying that my family had their feet to the fire over the past few months. Oh, don’t worry. This isn’t one of those pity parties where I ask you to sit back and feel sorry for me. On the contrary, I want to testify God is good when things are bad. When things seem to fall apart, He remains.

I think it would be easy for me to feel sorry for myself. If I’m honest, there were days I did! Quite well, I might add. But there was always hope in my heart. There was always the still, quiet whisper in my head. God remained and reminded me that He is with me and He loves me.  He always sees me through the storms.

Life‘s hardships and Satan’s attacks would love nothing more than to get us down and get our focus off Jesus. My Jesus. The Jesus who loves me. This Jesus who stands by me and walks with me through it all; over every hill and through each dark valley. The Jesus who experienced every painful emotion that I experience and who knows how I feel. My Jesus.

Is He your Jesus? I hope so! During the tough times, we will be able to continue counting our blessings if we have the greatest blessing of all – a relationship with Christ Jesus, Lord of all and for all!
