“From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another” (John 1:16).
I read about a motorcyclist roaring down the coastal highway in the Philippines who didn’t realize that the zipper of his backpack had come open. The man was making a business transfer with a large amount of cash. The bills began flying out of his backpack, covering the road and countryside. The rider wasn’t aware that over one million of his pesos were raining down like autumn leaves and being snatched up by others.
Our Lord reins down millions of blessings upon his children every day, and it’s not by accident. He deliberately opens the vaults of heaven and sends us one blessing after another.
I’ve noticed something about people who find successful recovery. They are more focused on the blessings of God than the disappointments of life. That positive, grateful attitude takes them further than any negative-focused person will ever go.
Recovery Step: Focus on the blessings that God pours out on your life every day.
