Blogging Your Blessings

Social media  is really a memory shelf where we can store our blessings and look back when times are hard.

Max Lucado shared a thought today from his book Glory Days:

“What’s the secret to survival in enemy territory? Remember what God has done! Record his accomplishments in your memoirs. Don’t forget a single blessing. Create a trophy room in your heart. Each time you experience a victory, place a memory on the shelf. Before you face a challenge, take a quick tour of God’s accomplishments.”

Maybe God invented the internet (I know Al Gore thinks he di
d.)  as a shelf — a place where we can display our trophies of blessings.  In ancient days God’s children stack rocks as a marker to declare they were blessed.  Yesterday I was blessed.  The coldest 300dpismallConstitution Camp for Kids that I started last year through the DAR, received a grant from the Constellation’s Community Champions program.

Then later in the day, I discovered Chicken Soup for the Soul had me as their featured author in their Inspirational daily email.

Each blessing I quickly shared with all my friends and family via social media. Thank goodness those memory markers will be on my blog, my Instagram, Facebook and and more.  I can look back when I’m discouraged and remember how many blessings I have.  This is why I don’t use  Snap Chat.  Hillary says Snap Chat erases everything.

BSM (Before Social Media) I used a notebook to record my prayers and blessings.  As my prayer were answered I would go back and check off how God had blessed me. My girls would even come and ask me to write a prayer down in my book.

John 1:12 says, “Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.”  We are all adopted.
