count em up



When upon life's billows
You are tempest tossed
When you are discouraged
Thinking all is lost

Are you ever burdened
With a load of care
Does the cross seem heavy
You are called to bear

When you look at others
With their lands and gold
Think that Christ has promised
You His wealth untold

Whether great or small
Do not be discouraged
God is over all


Count your blessings
Name them one by one
Count your blessings
See what God has done
Count your blessings
Name them one by one
Count your many blessings
See what God has done


Life is rough. No matter how big or how small the trials in life may seem...I believe that if you focus on the positive and count your many blessings the load will seem lighter and the day brighter! My dad told me that when he is down or discouraged he repeats the words to this song aloud, and then counts his blessings, naming them one by one. I liked the idea and I thought I'd share it....it's not rocket science or anything new...just a sure fire way to brighten your day!

So true. If it's not one thing it's another so better to just be positive and not dwell. There will ALWAYS be something negative you can dwell on.
