Debbie UpchurchPraise God for His Blessings I praise God today for our health. I am so very thankful that we have healthy bodies and that we are able to get out and go, and ENJOY God's creation that He has made. When I see so many suffering and going through trials with their health, it just makes me stop and say "Thank you God for Your mercy" in allowing us to be able to feel good and to get up and go. I pray that I never take for granted this healthy body. Used with Permission from Debbie Upchurch - No Copyright Intended.
Thank you so very much Debbie for reminding me an others to... Praise God for His Blessings! So many times we forget ALL the benefits and blessings we have from the Lord. It's so easy to go about our days and not even think once to say, "Thank you Lord" or "Praise you Jesus!" I am not pleased to say that I have had just those days... days where I just didn't take time to give my thanks or praise to Jesus for everything He has done and all He is doing for me. I may struggle with illness... but I am much better... than so many others!
Below are just a few of the blessings we have everyday. Blessings that deserve our praises to God:
We are a Blessed People: We have homes, food, water, electric, furniture, clothing, and shoes. We are a free
people... free to choose our lifestyles, free to dream and to work to make our
dreams come true. We are free to love, fall in love and we are free to marry the
one we love. We are free to express ourselves, our beliefs and our heritage. We
are free to make everyday choices about what we will eat, where we will go and
who we want to be with.
We are a Blessed Church: We are free to attend church services whenever the doors are open. We can sing
praise, teach, worship and serve our God. We are free to pray and lift up the Name
of Jesus Christ. We are blessed to read and own God's Holy Word, the Bible. We
can distribute tracks and share the Word of God with anyone who wants to know
We are a Blessed Nation: We are free to move about our land... We have industries, churches, banks,
markets, public and private schools, colleges, hospitals with emergency rooms,
EMS workers, doctors, nurses, ambulances, life-flights, firemen, police, guards-
men and a strong military. (Many are just Volunteers) We have builders, plumbers,
electricians, banks stores of every kind, fast foods, restaurants, courts, jails and
free enterprise. We are free to make personal choices everyday regarding these
blessings. We have a government that we vote in and out of office regularly. We
also have the freedoms to run for those very offices. Also we are free to leave this
nation if we do not like or appreciate it.
I am well aware that our system and way of life is not perfect... but then again... it is as good as what we individually decide we will contribute to it. I am thankful for the United States of America and the freedom it provides. I am so very blessed to have been born in America!
Basically... I just want to praise my God and to say "Thank you Lord Jesus" for all your blessings!
Listen to this beautiful song of praise... as it ministers' to your heart and soul:
