We are blessed, even while we are stressed, but the best is yet to come.
I am blessed! Oh, this is true! It’s not just that I’m having a nice day today and feel good about life. I am blessed because God in His grace gave His Son Jesus to take my place on the cross. I am blessed because Jesus gave His life so that I can be forgiven of my sins. I am blessed because this gift of God and this sacrifice of Jesus has saved me from having to handle the very big problem of being in trouble with God! I’m not in trouble with God anymore!
I do, however, still have some troubles in my life.
But I am blessed. I’ll explain this more in my lesson!
