THE ABILITY TO BATHE YOURSELF & 4 OTHER BLESSINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED…

There are many HUGE blessings that we can sometimes take for granted in our materialistic, self-centered society. And, I’m not necessarily talking about those things that we usually STOP and thank God for too.

I’m talking about those blessings that aren’t really even thought of as blessings, kinda like air conditioning in a new car or indoor plumbing…we see them as a ‘givens’.

THE ABILITY TO BATHE YOURSELF…

Ask anyone who has to endure depending on someone else to bathe them every day.

THE ABILITY TO WIPE YOURSELF

I’m going to push this point a little further… farther? You know what I mean:-) Imagine if you had to depend on someone to clean you every time you went to the bathroom. Never take the blessings of being able to do this for yourself for granted.

THE ABILITY TO HAVE COMPLETED BOWEL MOVEMENTS

While we are thanking God for the ability to walk, see, hear and even think for ourselves, let us not forget to thank God for a healthy digestive system. Have you ever felt the misery of constipation?

THE ABILITY FEEL PAIN…

As annoying as pain may be, God gave us pain for a reason. It often let’s us know that something is wrong with our bodies.

THE ABSENCE OF PAIN…

And, as much as pain can be a warning, there are those who live in constant pain daily. Never take for granted the blessing if ‘feeling good’.

This short list is by no means exhaustive. I just wanted to provoke us to thinking and thanking. What are some other things that we often forget to forget when giving thanks?

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV)

18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

Add yours

  1. I think about your “wipe yourself” point whenever I read this Scripture. No kidding!

    For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
    But the Lord upholds the righteous.
    Psalm 37:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
