Count Your Blessings Monday


I am giving us an opportunity every Monday to not only count our blessings, but to share them with others. This is a way that we can encourage one another. Make a post on your blog telling us about your blessing. Please put a link back to this post. You can add the URL of your blog post on Mr. Linky below. Many of our blessings we will have pictures of and we can share those as well. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us.



I don't have a picture this week, but I am so thankful for the blessing of being able to worship God freely. So many of our brothers and sisters around the world are not able to do this. They have to hide and do it or they are in prison for having done it. There is an organization called The Voice Of The Martyr that ministers to them. You can learn about the types of persecution that our brothers and sisters in the Lord are suffering with around the world. We can sing hymns freely in our home, in our car, in a parking lot. We can have people to our homes for a Bible study and not worry about our door being knocked in and being carried off to jail. It is a freedom that may not always be ours. If you notice now, Christians are the only ones that are allowed to be attacked in the media or films. There is no outcry from anyone to stop it. Thank you Lord, for the freedom and blessing to be able to worship You freely and in the open.

I had a entirely different blessing to write about but the rain was so wonderful I will save the other for another time.

Marci,
I agree with your blessing 100%! Where would you find a picture to match this? Thanks for the opportunity to post our blessings. I certainly helps me keep things in perspective.
