How blessed am I??

You know, I have been kind of wallowing in my life, it's not really going as I planned, mostly because of the decisions I have made, and the good Lord knows He spends a lot of time cleaning up after me. He could probably use His time helping people much more deserving than me if I would just quit being so stupid.

I'm doing a lot of praying and praising lately. I know how blessed I am, and I know that I don't deserve it... at all. I think of just a new blessing that has come way and I am so overwhelmed by the generosity of others, and a HUGE burden has been lifted, and I tell you this now... I don't deserve it.

I cannot believe how God works in my life and others. I am amazed and strive to always be better, to live a life that when I get up there and God and I are sitting across the picnic table I know that there will be parts of my life that He will be disappointed in, but I want Him to be proud of me and the work I've done for Him and even though I don't deserve anything, I don't want Him to be sorry He blessed me. Does that sound nuts?

God is so good and I am so thankful to be His.

Psalm 67
1 May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine upon us, Selah
2 that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.
3 May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.
4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples justly

and guide the nations of the earth. Selah
5 May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.
6 Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us.
7 God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him.

No, not nuts. To hear God say, "I am proud of you!" that is something to live for and look forward to!

Knowing you can't earn the blessings and still wanting to deserve them; real Christianity. No, not nuts.

The Blessings that God gives us daily is so Great, and we are such sinners next to him, that often we have a hard time understanding why he would bless us so dearly... When he blesses no matter how big or small, we should take it as a HUGE blessing because we are so undeserving..GOD IS SO GREAT!
