I know that I am blessed is a true testimony, declaring how blessed I am every day that I can see a brand new day. To be thankful for every thing God has given me whether good or bad.

"I Know That I Am Blessed"

I know that I am blessed each day that God allows me to live and see another new day. I make it a conscious effort to never take anything in life for granted, because nothing is promised to any of us. We should never make plans for tomorrow because tomorrow may never come to us. My motto every day is I'm blessed. My motto started twenty-five years ago. When I heard a 18 year old young man say that he was blessed, when anyone asked him how was he doing. His reply was that he was blessed.
I told him I liked his motto about being blessed and I adopted it for my very own and have been using it ever since. The bible teaches us to count our blessings and that we should praise the Lord and be thankful for everything that's in our lives, whether it's good or bad. Honestly, some things that happens to us in our lives, is hard for us to be thankful for but I thank God anyway.
I have use the phrase, I'm blessed so much that it has become a habit and true part of me. I guess that's good because I don't want God to think that I take anything for granted. We live in a world of ungrateful people that are to lazy to say thank you Jesus or just say I'm blessed. I want you all to become conscious of not being grateful or thankful for the things that God has given us. Let me make you conscious of all your blessings so, you can start to count them. You're alive and well, count two blessings. You're not blind you can see, count another blessing, you're have feet and are able to walk where you want to go, count another blessing. You have hands to bathe and clothe yourself without help, count another blessing.
You have a brain to think and make decisions, count another blessing. You have ears to hear and you're not deaf, count one more blessing. We have to many blessings for us to count, but some of us think we're suppose to have these things in our lives. I want you to know that because we have them, it's not a guarantee that we will keep them. There are people born every day without limbs, blind and can't see, or they're deaf and can't hear. These are reasons that we all should count our blessings every day, that we can wake up to a new day. Someone didn't wake up this morning.
We should thank God because he showed us favor and allowed us to see another day. Sometimes, life can seem like a royal pain but instead of us complaining, lets truly think about what we all have and start counting our blessings every day of our lives and appreciate everything that God has given us. When we go to bed tonight and are blessed to wake in the morning, thank God for another day and pray that they keep on coming each day.
