The Blessings of God
So many times we fail to see
The blessings before our eyes;
We look for something exciting
That will lift us to the skies;
Yet, when we come down once again,
We see things just as they are,
And we realize joy’s not found
Swinging high upon a star.
Emotions rise and fall each day
With the turning of the tide;
And the grass can look much greener
Over on the other side;
But as we pray and look around
Our eyes are opened to see…
And we find such wondrous blessings
In just a flower or tree.
And when we know the Saviour, friend,
Oh, when He has set us free…
There is nothing more exciting
Than the Rock to which we flee.
May we always have grateful hearts
And spiritual eyes to see…
For The Blessings of God surround…
And are found in you and me.
“And all these blessings shall come on thee,
and overtake thee,
if thou shalt harken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.”
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings
in heavenly places in Christ”
(Deut 28:2; Eph 1:3)
