Reasons Why You Are Blessed

Reasons Why You Are Blessed

If you own a Bible, you are abundantly blessed,
about 1/3 of the world does not have access to one.
If you wake up each morning with more health than illness,
you are blessed to rise and shine,
to live and to serve in a new day.
If you have anyone on the planet, just one person
that loves you and listens to you; count this a blessing.
If you can freely attend a church meeting without fear,
then you are more blessed than over 1/3 of the world.
If you have a yearning in your heart to parent a child,
you are blessed because you still desire what you cannot see.
If you pray today or any day, you are blessed because you
believe in God’s willingness to hear your prayer.
If you pray for someone else,
you are blessed because you want to help others also.
If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your
back, a roof over your head, and a place to sleep;
all at the same time; you are rich in this world;
If you have a brother or sister in Christ that will pray
with you and for you, then you benefit from a spiritual unity,
bond, and agreement, which the gates of hell cannot stand against.
If you have any earthly family that even halfway loves you and support you,
are blessed beyond measure.
If you attend a church with a church family that offers
you one word of encouragement, you are blessed with some form of fellowship.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet,
or some spare change in a dish someplace,
you are among the world’s wealthy.
If you can go to bed each night, knowing that God loves you,
you are blessed beyond measure.
If you can read this message, you are more blessed
than about 2/3 of the world.
If you have never had to endure the hardship and agony
of battle, imprisonment, or torture, you are blessed in
indescribable measure.
If you have a voice to sing His praises, a voice to witness God’s love,
and a voice to share the gospel, you are blessed.
About 1/3 of the world does not even know who the one true God is.
If you can hold someone’s hand, hug another person,
touch someone on the shoulder, you are blessed because
you can offer God’s healing touch.
If you can share a word of encouragement with someone
else, and do it with His love in your heart,
you are blessed because you have learned how to give.
If you have the conviction to stand fast upon His Word
and His promises, no matter what, you are blessed because
you are learning patience, endurance, and tenacity.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and
are truly thankful, you are blessed because most people can, but won’t.

Jesus Bears My Burden

Jesus Bears My Burdens

When my heart was heavy 
with sorrow and sank
it was then that I went 
to the living fountain and drank
Jesus bears my burdens 
and lightens my load
I believe all His promises 
that in His book he told
He sees, He knows, and carries me 
to the rock that is higher
and gives me victory over Satan 
who is the greatest liar
Jesus is always there 
at times I need a faithful friend
and when the old accuser attacks 
he is ready to defend

Jesus saw my heart and knew 
my burden was too heavy to bear
so tenderly He said
"cast on me all your care"
I gave my burden to Him 
and left it in his hand
He encouraged my heart 
and gave me the strength to withstand
With Jesus on my side 
I knew I could not lose the fight
The glory of his presence
shone in my heart like a beautiful light
He gave me a vision to keep on going 
and serve him with all my heart
as I felt the comfort of the Holy Spirit 
and knew He would not depart

I poured out my complaint to the Lord
and made my earnest plea 
I begged for his mercy 
and to do a miracle for me
I felt my cry came into his ears 
and that he had heard
recalling many promises 
I had read in his Word
With a sweet assurance 
my petitions were appealed
it seemed like my requests 
were then recorded and sealed
I knew the Lord would answer 
in His time and way
and though my heart was breaking 
there was coming a joyful day

Jesus is the only one 
who knows all and understands
keeping me safe and secure 
in his strong and loving hands
caring for me and uplifting me with his love 
all the day long
and even when in the deepest valley 
puts in my heart a song
He delivers me from all my troubles 
so that I am not consumed by them
and reassures my heart 
to keep trusting and leaning on Him
With songs of deliverance in the night 
Jesus always brings the victory
keeping me with his sustaining grace 
til I finish my journey

When the pathway before me 
looks uncertain and obscured from my sight
I just trust the Lord knows what he is doing 
and that His way is always right
His way is so perfect, 
how could I ever doubt him or fear
always looking upward
and waiting for my Lord to appear
New wonders of his grace and blessings 
He shows me day by day
So good is He to me, 
I want to never from him stray
Jesus knows the way that I take 
and the trials that I face
and will deliver me all the days of my life 
til I reach my final resting place

I've had a burden on my heart
for many years
and for my dearest loved ones 
I've shed many tears
Now that my life on earth 
is coming to a close
I know a great victory is coming 
over Satan who did oppose
When I get home I'll be waiting 
for my loved ones to join me there
where we can all be together again 
and all the glories of Heaven share
Thank you Lord Jesus for keeping me 
in your care throughout my life
and for giving me a great hope 
that someday everything will be alright

Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
