ETERNAL BLESSINGS


 Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”  
Genesis 15:5 (NKJV)


ETERNAL BLESSINGS
 

I gaze into the midnight sky

each star shining eternally bright


My hands sift through silky kernels

each grain of sand blends with the shoreline


Watch as water droplets sprinkle down

each splash of rain that wets my brow


Snow that swishes to the ground

each snowflake different making no sound


There=s so many blessings to be found

Your goodness and faithfulness abounds


Your blessings, Lord, they fall on me

But truly I cannot count the ways.

Driving home today leaves swirled and tumbled about in the wind and as I watched the numerous leaves cascade to the ground I thought of God's promise to Abraham that his descendents would be as numerous as the stars. Could Abraham count the stars? No! Neither can we. And it occurred to me that as God blessed Abraham so abundantly, He does the same for us. Go ahead...count your blessings, naming them one by one, see the great things that God has done (but I bet they are so numerous you can't name them all!)
