When You Feel Left Out of God’s Blessings

Based on the quote by Helen Keller

Over lunch one day, a friend told me that sometimes when other people express their gratitude for all the wonderful blessings they receive from God and all that is going so right, it makes her feel uncomfortable because what if some of the other people around are experiencing grave problems, they might feel like they are cursed or they may be vulnerable to envy.

It is worthwhile to strike a balance between our public gratitude to the Lord with being aware and sensitive to the situation of others, that our praise for God’s faithfulness may become a source of hope for them during their time of trials and difficulty instead of a cause for them to stumble.

For those who struggle with feeling a little left out in the rain of blessings and are wondering where in the world God is, I would like to encourage you with a devotion I just received today from my former classmate, Odze:

Grammy Award-winning believer, Laura Story, also had in mind the question that when God is not answering her prayer, does it mean that He is not blessing her?  Here is a previous post about that: Prayers Unanswered.

May the Lord open our eyes daily to His blessings for us, that in times of waiting, we may experience His love, grace, joy, and peace.

Rom 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you mayoverflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

keep calm and count your blessings                                                                                      Photo Credit
