COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS



HYMN WRITER: Jonathan Oatman, Jnr     

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done

Refrain:
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.


Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by

Refrain

When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings money cannot buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high

Refrain

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end

.....................................................................................................................................

let us take count of January – June 2014 and it will surprise us what God has done.



To God
The ancient of days
The ageless God
Who gave his Son to blot away our iniquities
The defender of the helpless
In our unfaithfulness, He has remained faithful
In our trials and downturn, he remained the rock of ages
The One who with the blast of his nostrils parted the red sea
The God who has never lost any battle
He has not allowed the enemy to gloat over us
He has kept us from the arrows that flies by day and the terror of the night
The balm of Gilead has kept the diseases of the Egyptians away from us
He has being our source and sustenance
He has filled our mouth with laughter and put our feet to dancing
He never left us to our own devices
Though we can’t see Him, we see his wondrous works in our lives
He alone is God

  6. He is ever faithful and a lot of times it's good to sit back and take stock of how far He has brought us. I did that today and was awed. None like our God indeed. Thanks for this reminder Sykik.

  7. Truly, I am most grateful to GOD. For life and health, plus for peace in all my confusions. My Blog mother once told me; that Gratitude opens doors of opportunites, and life has taught me that she is 100% correct.

    As we mount the second half of 2014, I look back at the last 6 months, and all I can say is #ItcanonlybeGOD.
