“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.” – Jeremiah 17:7-8
That’s a lot of coleslaw…
I have the most COOL facebook friends!!! Can you believe the size of this cabbage??? She posted this photo the other day and of course it got me to thinking about how much BIGGER our blessings are when we belong to God.
Bigger blessings??? You bet! God has blessed His own in a big way since the beginning of time.
Have you ever heard the saying… I’m too blessed to be stressed – ??? It’s true! When we focus on all of the many blessings from the LORD, we just spend time loving our family and friends – instead of thinking about the things we lack. With God in our corner, we lack nothing. We have what we need because we know He provides for our every need.
You know, if there is something you think you need and God has not brought it your way (like, say… a million dollars) – it’s because He knows it’s not what you need. How many times do we hear about folks who win the lottery and have nothing but grief after they get all that money? I’ve heard story after story about tragedy that stems from having too much money and being used – or some even lose their life over it. God wants the very best for us – we have to trust His wisdom for our lives.
Money doesn’t solve every problem – it really doesn’t.
The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. – Psalm 29:11
Bigger blessings from God – of strength and peace. Strength to face our daily trials and peace as we keep living. 🙂
