Blessings

Every year that I was in high school, our church youth group went to a camp in Florida. It was always a great time of fellowship and growing closer to God.
I especially remember one Sunday morning of the trip when I was a senior in high school. We had a worship service on the beach. We all sat on towels and listened to the speaker. We sang praises to God and talked about how good God is.
At the end of that worship service, we all just sat quietly and looked at the ocean. Each of us took turns praying and thanking God for all our wonderful blessings.
In our Bible Reading for today, Paul lists some of the blessings we receive from God: mercy, love, grace, new life in Christ, salvation, and eternal life. We need to remember to be thankful for these blessings every day.
God has given you many blessings, too. Think about them today and thank Him for all He does for you.
