You probably remember the verse that says “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
How about the one that says “nothing can separate you from the love of God.” Romans 8:38-39
In this series, we’ve given you a lot to think about, some ways you can take action and some changes to consider in your life.
But, at this moment, where you are sitting, you can Experience God. Here is a simple way to realize how close He really is.
Step #1: List your blessings, the people or circumstances that fill you with gratitude.
Step #2: List the people you have blessed, those you have encouraged, helped or blessed.
You can record this on your computer, on your phone or on a piece of paper.
Count your blessings then count the people you have blessed…That will give you clarity.
I can’t tell you how to feel about this exercise, but I know for sure God can speak to you during it.
Do me a favor, don’t allow guilt to creep in to this, whatever you experience allow it to inspire you. If you have a short list of blessings, keep adding to the list over the next few days as other blessings come to mind. If you have a short list of people you have blessed, let that direct you to someone you can bless today.
It’s a cliché to say “Christianity is about a relationship not a religion” but it’s so true. Your relationship to God through His son and your relationship to others is all there is. Almost everything else is a system of ways to get you to those relationships.
Count your blessings and thank God for them. Think about the people you have been able to bless and be thankful God can use you to impact lives.
Most of all, thank God that you can experience more of Him anytime you want.
