The entire world seems to be turned upside down by fear over the past few weeks from this coronavirus scare. Many people might be questioning God’s existence or cursing Him for letting the human race spine into chaos. But I say to you do not blame God it is not His fault. If you want to blame anyone it is ourselves who are responsible for chaos here on earth. We are the reason why things go wrong! God isn’t he loves us all and He wants to see us thrive and praise Him.
Instead of being fearful or angry at God let’s praise Him even more at a time like this and remember to be grateful for what you do have. Let us all counting our blessings today.
1. Blessed to be ALIVE!
If you are alive today then that is a huge gift and a blessing from God! Thank you, Jesus, for my life!
“rooted and builded up in him, and established in your faith, even as ye were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”
Colossians 2:7 ASV
2. Blessed to have FAMILY & friends!
If you have family and friends in your life you are so blessed! Thank you, Jesus, for ALL my family and friends. Please protect them in their time of need and keep them safe and healthy. In Jesus’ name. Amen
“Beloved, I pray that in all things thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

3. Blessed to have a JOB.
You are blessed if you still have your job or any source of income to take care of your financial expenses. Thank you, Jesus, for always providing for me with everything I need to survive!
“And God is able to make all grace abound unto you; that ye, having always all sufficiency in everything, may abound unto every good work:”
2 Corinthians 9:8 ASV
4. Blessed to have a place to SLEEP.
You are so blessed if you have a warm safe place to rest your head at night. Especially if you have a warm big comfy bed or even a nice couch. Many people don’t even have that so if you do be grateful and thank Jesus for that each and every day! Thank you, Jesus, for providing me with a warm comfy place to rest my head at night!
“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to the which also ye were called in one body; and be ye thankful.”

5. Blessed to have clean WATER to drink and good FOOD to eat.
You are so blessed if you have clean, fresh water to drink every day. If you have good food to eat that is warm and delicious then WOW that is so great! There are countless people throughout the world that aren’t as blessed as you right now. Always remember to give thanks to God! Thank you, Jesus, for food in my belly and water to quench my thirst.
“I will give thanks unto Jehovah according to his righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of Jehovah Most High.”

Even though it may be hard to give thanks when things may not be as good right now because of the coronavirus. If you have even one of these things that I mentioned above you are so blessed right now! A thankful heart is what God truly loves to hear and see from his children. Give thanks to Jesus always in prayer and action.
May God bless you all!
