Showered with Blessings

It is easy to take for granted all the many ways we're blessed. In fact, we typically get so caught up in the busyness of life, that we miss so many things we have to be thankful for. 

In Psalm 116, we are reminded of just how good God is to us:

God is gracious—it is he who makes things right,
our most compassionate God.
God takes the side of the helpless;
when I was at the end of my rope, he saved me.

I said to myself, “Relax and rest.
God has showered you with blessings.
Soul, you’ve been rescued from death;
Eye, you’ve been rescued from tears; And you, Foot, were kept from stumbling.”
[from Eugene Peterson's "The Message"]

As with the Psalmist, sometimes we, too, have to go through hard times to realize how much God blesses us. But what if we made a point of intentionally looking for those blessings every day? How might our lives be changed for the better?
