“Let’s talk blessings.” Sometimes in life things don’t always go as well as we hoped. It is during those times you may be tempted to think that you will never get a break, things will never work out for you, or maybe that you are cursed and not blessed.
If we go back to the beginning when God created heaven and earth, there is a simple phrase about what God did immediately after creating man; “God blessed them.” They didn’t have to ask God to bless them, or manipulate God into blessing them. They didn’t even have to pray desperately hard for a blessing. He simply did so because He is gracious and good.
When we are blessed, our blessings should overflow to others. We are not blessed so that we alone can feel good, or be happy and comfortable, but so that we can bless others. If you know that you are blessed, don’t keep it to yourself. Go out a BE a blessing to someone else. You never know how an act of kindness can change the very direction of someone’s life and give them hope.
