Count Your Blessings
by Charles R. Swindoll

Let us come before His presence
with thanksgiving. Let us shout joyfully 
to Him with psalms.
Psalm 95:2

Sometimes when you donʼt feel like praying, or youʼre consumed with needing to speak to the Lord but canʼt gather the words, try that old standby . . .

Count your many blessings, count them one by one.

Itʼs amazing how you can get carried away from worries and woes and self-concern when you start naming out loud what youʼre thankful for. Right away, your focus shifts from your needs to the Fatherʼs graciousness and love.

Try it!
