The first thing each morning, you
should read through your list of blessings and add one more item to
the list. Make your list of blessings grow larger each day.
TAKE YOUR BLESSINGS AWAY ONE BY ONE
A list of blessings will not
transform your life unless you do something with it.
First, you need to count your
blessings, one by one, to remind yourself that the blessings are
there. Next, you need to take your blessings away, one by one, so you
can experience what it would be like if they werenít there.
Remove the first item on the blessing
list. Imagine and visualize what your life would be like without good
health. Imagine not being able to follow your dreams because your
health was bad. Imagine what it would be like to experience chronic
pain with no hope of relief. Imagine needing to take pills and
injections every day for the rest of your life. After five minutes,
put good health back on your list.
Take the second item on your list.
Imagine your life without enough food. Visualize your children living
in constant hunger and undergoing the changes of starvation. Imagine
what it would be like to receive only one good meal each week. Then
restore food to your list.
Imagine what your life would be like
if you could not walk. When I had two broken legs and could not walk
for several months, I wanted to walk more than anything in the world.
I was jealous of people who could walk. I was envious of people who
could climb stairs. When I was able to walk again, I felt like I was
soaring like an eagle. Six months later when I could climb stairs, I
felt like superman in flight. Walking is great. Climbing stairs is
one of the great joys of life. Anyone can ride an elevator. I can
actually walk up and down the stairs. Walking has been given back to
me, and itís a blessing that I count every day.
Imagine what it would be like to have
difficulty breathing. Imagine that every breath you take is a
struggle. If you take an ordinary soda straw and try breathing
through it for a couple of minutes, you discover what itís like to
have severe emphysema and asthma. Then, throw away the soda straw and
take a normal breath. Wow! Breathing normally is one of the great
pleasures of life.
Go through your entire blessing list
in this manner. Experience what itís like to live without each of
your blessings, and it wonít be long before you to discover how rich
your life is.
No matter how many problems you have,
the things that are positive in your life far outnumber the negative.
When you focus on everything that is good, your mind replays your
blessings all day long.
You can make your life as positive as
you want. All you need to do is focus on Godís love and count your
blessings one by one. You must count your blessings or your blessings
will not count.
Each day I need to remind myself of my blessings to keep them active
in my mind. The best way to fill my cup with joy is to turn on my
Good Finder and rediscover my blessings. The things that are positive
in my life far outnumber the negative. When I focus on whatís good,
my mind replays my blessings all day long. I can make my life as
positive as I want it to be. All I need to do is focus on Godís love
and count my blessings one by one. I must count my blessings or my
blessings donít count.
