blessings received

August 6, 2011

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)

Name a blessing any blessing.  This is not a card trick.  When we think of any blessing at all, we can be sure of its source.  And we can be sure that God wants to, at some point give us that particular blessing.   Every blessing in Christ will be ours when we are most in need.

I think the key is to understand which blessing(s) we are to receive now and to live thankfully, gratefully, joyfully in that blessing. Living in the moments blessings can allow us (perhaps even cause us) to be a grateful people.  Again I think of Thoreau, living in the nick of time.  That’s where we belong; living in this moments blessing.  Celebrate this heartbeat.

Unfortunately, I find myself wanting a particular blessing and feeling bummed that I don’t have what I want when I want it.

Oh, to live in the blessing received rather than the blessing in waiting.
