“You mark us with blessing, O God.” Psalm 67:7
In my writing, I probably use the word “blessing” more than any other than “thank you.” In Psalm 67, the Psalmist wrote about being thankful for their blessings. In this case, it was for a good harvest and there would now be enough food for the people.
Do you count your blessings? Some people begin their day by naming three blessings. In that theme, I will write mine for everyone to read in the meditation:
1. I am blessed I can get out of bed without assistance.
2. I am blessed I can make my own breakfast and that my daughter brought me a new supply of tea from Harrods in London.
3. I am blessed to have a purpose, such as writing meditation moments for anyone who needs a spiritual boost.
These are only the first three blessings I will encounter today. I’m grateful God surprises me throughout the day with blessings I could never believe I’d receive, nor dare to ask for.
Thank you, God, for the little blessings and the big blessings, but most of all the unexpected and undeserved blessing of a gracious Lord. Amen.
