Count Your Blessings Monday

Here is an opportunity for you to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in your life. If you have a blog, please sign Mr. Linky below and post on your blog. If you do not have a blog, leave a comment on this post telling us what you are thankful for and what you are counting as a blessing today. This is a way that we can encourage one another. If you make a post on your blog telling us about your blessing, please put a link back to this post. You can use the picture above for your post. 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. They encourage others. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!

The blessing I am going to count today is the blessing that God tells us He will be our Abba, our Daddy. We have had a rough week around here. I am so glad that His mercies are new every day and that like it talks about in Psalm 131, I can climb into His lap and rest like a weaned child against His breast. The situation as it was could not be fixed by us. It continued to grow worse. With nothing more we could do, I climbed onto God's lap and I am resting there. This is where I need to find my source of worth, or peace, of love. I am one of His beloved. I am special to Him. He loves me enough that He sent His son to die for me. That is enough. Come on up into His lap. There is plenty of room.

Isn't it the most comforting feeling to rest in the arms of the Father? I pray that he will meet all your needs, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Lift your eyes unto the Lord and he will come to your aid. Thanks for hosting.

I am thankful that I can wake up every morning knowing that I am loved - by God, my husband, my family, and my friends. What a blessing!

Isn't it wonderful to "cozy" up on our Lord's lap in times of trails?

This past week I have not felt cozy in his lap. And then I saw that I was still trying to control things. Then I let go and wow! The Lords hold is so much better than mine. The lord is so good.

I count it a blessing to read your blog. This post brings to mind the lyrics of one of my favorite songs-

Abba Father
My Defender
You are Holy
And I surrender
For in my weakness
You protect me
When my heart strays
You Correct me
I cry Abba Father -
I love you, Daddy
Abba Father...
I love you, I love you
I cry Abba Father -
I love you, Daddy
Abba Father..
I love you I love you
