Advent Series ~ Day 19 ~ BLESSINGS

25 Days of God Given Gifts
But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him. 
Jeremiah 17:7

One of the definitions of blessings is defined as:
A favor or gift bestowed by God, thereby bringing happiness.

Our natural tendency is to focus on our problems and how to solve them rather than focusing on the blessings and giving God our problems to solve.

We’re told in Psalm 68:19 that God LOADS us DAILY with benefits. What if we stopped and really thought of our blessings for the day? My blog name as you probably know, is Little Birdie Blessings. If I had a mission statement, part of it would be to encourage others to focus on their blessings.

We can let our troubles overcome us or we can choose to overcome them.

Life is not easy and problems face us every day. It’s often out of those struggles we find our greatest blessings.

When you and I are related to Jesus Christ, our strength and wisdom and peace and joy and love and hope may run out, but His life rushes in to keep us filled to the brim. We are showered with blessings, not because of anything we have or have not done, but simply because of Him. ~ Anne Graham Lotz ~

Why not start the new year with a blessings journal. Write something in it every day. Some days are harder than others to recognize a blessing, but they are there. As we approach Christmas day and a new year, join me in slowing down long enough to focus on our blessings and reflect on today's verse from Jeremiah 17:7 - Blessed is the one who TRUSTS in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. Did you get that? We place our TRUST and CONFIDENCE in God, and He will bless us. I know that to be true!

Thank you dear ones, you are all blessings to me.

Links are below:


  1. I thank God for blessings he gives me, each day. The list is huge, so I pick out a few blessings out of many. He gives us all many blessings.

  2. Many have done gratitude journals, but this blessings journal sounds a bit different. I prolly have an empty journal here someplace. Thank you for the suggestion.

  3. You are right, we need to count our blessings. I like the idea of a blessing journal. I would put pictures of robins and spectacular views, of children and grandchildren and a loving husband.


Your comments are blessings to my day.
