21 Reasons
why you are blessed


1. If you own a Bible, you are abundantly blessed-
about 1/3 of the world does not have access to one.

2. If you wake up each morning with more health than illness,
you are blessed to rise and shine,
to live and to serve in a new day.

3. If you have anyone on the planet,
just one person that loves you
and listens to you; count this a blessing.

4. If you can freely attend a church meeting
without fear,
then you are more blessed
than over 1/3 of the world.

5. If you have a yearning in your heart
to parent a child,
you are blessed
because you still desire what you cannot see.

6. If you pray today or any day,
you are blessed because you believe
in God's willingness to hear your prayer.

7. If you pray for someone else,
you are blessed
because you want to help others also.

8. If you have food in your refrigerator,
clothes on your back,
a roof over your head, and a place to sleep;
all at the same time;
you are rich in this world;

9. If you have a brother or sister in Christ
that will pray with you and for you,
then you benefit from a spiritual unity,
bond, and agreement,
which the gates of hell cannot stand against.

10. If you have any earthly family
that even halfway loves you
and supports you,
you are blessed beyond measure.

11. If you attend a church
with a church family that offers you
one word of encouragement,
you are blessed
with some form of fellowship.

12. If you have money in the bank,
in your wallet,
or some spare change in a dish someplace
you are among the world's wealthy.

13. If you can go to bed each night,
knowing that God loves you,
you are blessed beyond measure.

14. If you try each day to imitate
our Lord Jesus Christ for even a minute,
you are blessed
because you show a willingness
to grow up in Him.

15. If you can read this message,
you are more blessed
than about 2/3 of the world.

16. If you have never had to endure
the hardship and agony of battle,
imprisonment, or torture,
you are blessed in indescribable measure.

17. If you have a voice to sing His praises,
a voice to witness God's love,
and a voice to share the gospel,
you are blessed.
About 1/3 of the world
does not even know who the one true God is.

18. If you can hold someone's hand,
hug another person,
touch someone on the shoulder,
you are blessed
because you can offer
God's healing touch.

19. If you can share a word of encouragement
with someone else,
and do it with His love in your heart,
you are blessed
because you have learned how to give.

20. If you have the conviction
to stand fast upon His Word
and His promises, no matter what,
you are blessed
because you are learning
patience, endurance, and tenacity.

21. If you hold up your head
with a smile on your face
and are truly thankful,
you are blessed
because most people can, but won't.

Go Now... And...
May You Have a blessed day
