Winsome Wednesday - Look for Blessings!

I have determined lately to look for blessings wherever I can.  Its really hard when you are facing tough stuff but when you do start looking for those blessings God places in your path everyday, your perspective changes.

One blessing that I really appreciate right now is in our new car.  Yes, yes, the new car is a huge blessing too :)  But its the fact that I can connect my ipod and listen to my praise music that is REALLY the blessing I see.  I am so excited just to go to the shop for milk so I can blast my praise music as loud as my ears will allow.   I have in the past, but being that it is my ipod, the selection is so much bigger and I have access to ALL my music.

Psalm 27 v 6(b):...Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;  I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

Another blessing I found is seeing a beautiful sunrise in my rear-view mirror.  How cool is that?  So beautiful!  Its amazing how much differently one sees the world when you look for the good and the beauty.  All God's gifts and blessings to us.  Why?  Because He loves us!

What is the blessing you see in your world today?

God bless

  2. Thanks so very much for letting me join in. HOPE your Wednesday is blessed!!

  3. There are so many blessings each day...we just need to open our eyes to them! Recently, I have faced some challenges, too, but as I have placed my trust in God and looked to Him, those blessings have been so obvious!! I am so thankful!

    Thank you Tracy, for this great link-up!

    Blessings, Joan

  4. One of the blessings I have in my life is you dear friend. I appreciate you! Thank you for being a light for Jesus and encouraging us each step of the way!


  5. Hi Tracy!

    My blessing for today is that my husband's stress test yesterday was within normal limits!

  6. Hi Tracy
    Oh, the sunrise in Cape Town is truly breathtakingly beautiful. I can just see in my minds eye Jan Van Riebeeck standing on the castle walls every morning being grateful to see such beauty.

  7. Sometimes we need our friends to remind us to focus - thank you for that sweet reminder! Congrats on your new car:) Mine is in the shop so I'm driving our old junker - and I so understand your blessing! BTW - when I had a moment today and I had been cataloging ALL my frustrations in major areas - I remembered to take my eyes off those and look for blessing. I looked down at my feet - at beige and cream stripes topped with dainty flower - shoes - they're just a thing - but they made me smile - and He knew they would make me smile! I needed that! Blessings to you!

  8. Beautiful pictures! It is hard to grumble and complain when we are looking for blessings! Great encouragement!

  9. The blessing I have found this week is in the strength that God has given me to care for my elderly parents who have been sick. Especially when I got what they have, too!
