Count your blessings, not your grievances

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s sad how the default mode for too many of us has become that we focus on our grievances rather than our blessings. I see that in my own life, and more than likely you’ve been there too. You’ve been denied a promotion, or you didn’t get that contract, or that grant, or that tenure-track opportunity… life’s not fair! No, it isn’t. But life is life, and you can fight it or make peace with it. Injustice abounds, and we must push back at every opportunity. At the same time, if you have a job that pays the bills, if you have a roof over your head, if you and yours enjoy decent health, remember to count your blessings too.

      That’s a good point! And, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, “Count your blessings, one by one. Count your blessings, see what the Lord has done.” If you have troubles by the score, try this- ” Don’t, burdens needlessly bear. Take it to the Lord in prayer!”
