Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Blessing.
I live each day in the blessing of the Lord. He surely has given much to me – salvation, joy, peace, comfort, laughter, love, healing – and more. There are days I only have to look at any one of my family members and the tears will roll, as each one in my family is a blessing to me.
Then there are the days which can make me wonder, “Wasn’t the Lord bringing blessing in this particular area or circumstance?”
A situation can change causing any one of us to question the blessing. May it never cause us to question the blessing of the Lord, for the actions of people are never an indication of the character of God.
He is forever faithful. Forever good. And all He does is good even when it may not seem like it in the moment.
His Presence with us is a blessing we get to live in each day. Even when life hurts, He is at work to bless us and turns it for our good.
“I will bless my people and their homes around my holy hill. And in the proper season I will send the showers they need. There will be showers of blessing.” (Ezekiel 34:26, NLT)
