Are You Blessing The Lord?

All of us like to receive blessings from the Lord; God showers us with any number of blessings daily. Some may think they don't receive that many blessings from God everyday but let me assure you that we do.

Are you able to get out of bed in the mornings? That is a great blessing.

Do you have a job? That is another blessing.

Do you have a home? That is a blessing.

Do you have food on your table? This is another blessing.

Do you have a husband/wife? This is another great blessing from God.

Do you have children? What a wonderful blessing.

Do you have parents? This is another wonderful blessing.

The list could go on and on forever. Have you ever thought about blessing the Lord? We should bless Him daily as He blesses us.

To bless the Lord is to love, adore, respect, glorify, honor, praise, and worship Him. We bless Him by recalling all the glory, righteousness, and all of His goodness. All of these things should be done on a daily bases, there is no other that has blessed us with all the things He has blessed us with. His love is the strongest love there is, no one loves us like He does.

Not only does God enjoy receiving our blessings but it gives us a feeling of closeness to our Heavenly Father. Once we start blessing Him, we don't want to stop. Won't you bless Him today?

May you always know the love, joy, and peace of the Lord!

How wonderful it is to 'bless' the Lord! I truly thank Him for all He has blessed me with. I positively want to bless Him in return! But, if He never blesses me another second of my life, I will continue to bless Him!
