Hard times come around all of the time. Life isn’t perfect and sin is in this world. If we really tried, we’d be surrounded by negativity all of the time very easily. Do you know what’s hard to do but very rewarding? Finding God’s blessings and surrounding yourself with positive settings.
As a Christ-follower, that’s what you’ve got to do, right?
Always find the good and blessings of God through hard times.
But how do we truly put that into practice?
7 Ways To Find God’s Blessings
Don’t let problems take over your thoughts. Keep your mind fixed on God and His goodness.
2. God’s Blessings
Blessings don’t always have to be big occasions where it’s crystal clear to see. Sometimes they’re small affairs that you need to work a little harder to find.
3. Joyful Time
Spend extra time with people who are joyful. Do you have someone who makes you laugh even when you feel like crying? Hang around that person and get an extra dose of joy this week.
For me, I love Mark Lowry. I’ve been watching him since I was a kid and he always makes me laugh.
4. No Negative Voices
Stop listening to your own negative voice. Spend time in quiet with your heart and mind open and listen to God speak to you. There’s nothing more perfect.
5. Read your Bible
You knew this was coming if you’ve followed me for any length of time. I’m all about the Bible and how it’s the answer to everything.
6. Faithful Blessings
Be open to blessings, even if you don’t think you desire them. Blessings are God’s gift to you for being faithful. He knows that we as humans get bored easily. We forget incredibly fast why we’re living for Him and sacrificing for Him. Blessings are our little rewards from God that says, “Good job, daughter! You’re doing great. Keep up the good work!”.
7. No More Blaming
Stop the blame game and sing God’s praises. Sometimes things happen, but “we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28).
As Christians, we will have times of tribulation. However, God has promised that all the things we go through (good or bad) will be following God’s direction for our lives.
Do you know how that happens? By always giving God the praise no matter what. He will keep blessing you because He’s going to keep saying “Well done, daughter! I’m so pleased by how you’re following me.
I know it’s hard and I know you want to quit, but please take this blessing as my thank you for your faithfulness”.
I know you’re like me and you want to keep hearing those words from God. Stay faithful in hard times and keep a lookout for those blessings.
