A secret to happiness is prayerfully counting your blessing, while giving thanks to God. When you are having a bad day, take a few minutes and start thanking God when you do that you will discover that your focus will turn from sadness to happiness. Create more effort to rejoice in the Lord all the time, no matter the circumstances that befall you. Philippians 3:1. 4:4
The song count your blessing sums up these thought:
When upon life’s billows, you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings tonight; name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord 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 tonight, every doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by
So, amid the conflicts, whether great or small,
Do not be discourage, God is over all;
Count your many blessings tonight, angel will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journeys end.
Count your blessings today; name them one by one;
Count your many blessing today; see what God hath done.
Beloved, happiness is a choice; cultivate the habit of being happy all the time, irrespective of the bad or worst situation you found yourself into.
Count all your blessings, be specific over it. It helps to brighten your future, and to put the bad things in proper perspective.
