Counting 1,000 Gifts

James 1:17-18 The Message (MSG)

16-18 So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.

The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. I love this. I can imagine it in my mind’s eye. Our gifts are flooding downward from Him.

I’m going to start counting my blessings/gifts again. Starting today; one thousand reasons to celebrate Him. He is giving us something daily. We need only to open our eyes and souls to His many gifts.

  1. The beautiful bright pink Hibiscus blooms on a plant we thought wouldn’t bloom ever again.
  2. A planner with colorful events upcoming this month.
  3. Sparkly gel pens that highlight events on the calendar and verses/key words in the Message Bible.
  4. My book published via Amazon–Anxious Always
  5. Starting an Arbonne business to lead myself & others toward healthy living

Dear God,
You are the Gift Giver. Forgive me when I don’t pay attention to the gifts you flood into my life. Give me eyes to see and a heart open to the rivers of gifts that you pour in and around me. Thank you for Your Holy Spirit. Keep me in love with you.
