Sunday Verse: John 1:16

Sunday Verse: John 1:16

For a long time, I didn’t understand the real concept of blessings. Things were rough in my early years, and as a result I just kind of thought God was ignoring me. It’s only now, years and years later, I see the blessings I didn’t see then.

This insight also changes the way I look at things today. I know that I probably miss the majority of blessings that God gives me. I’m focused on other things at times. I think sometimes “I’m not getting what I want” and so I don’t feel the blessings that are there, holding me up and keeping me strong.  But now, I know they are there.

My prayers today include the blessings I know must be in my life but for whatever reason I just can’t see. And this verse helps me remember that.

“From the fullness of his grace, we have received one blessing after another.”
John 1:16
