This past Sunday our worship team sang For All That You Have Done For Us by Rend Collective, which is set to the tune of Auld Lang Syne. I had not hear this before, or at least I hadn’t remembered hearing it.
But, what an incredible song of praise as we look back over the last year with Thankfulness.
Your grace will never be forgot
Your mercy all my life…
Will be my source forever song
My story and my light
2015 had its share of ups, downs, transitions, and general overwhelm.
But even in all of that, one only needs to look around to see that everything is grace and everything has purpose.
The little blessings are huge and numerous when we stop to count them one by one. Mine might not look as grand as the one next to me, but they are grand when viewed through the lens of grace.
And when I truly take stock of all I have I am humbled and even ashamed of my grumblings. I’m making the effort to count those small blessings this winter when I am often plagued by the blues. I’ll be doing a #100happydays on Instagram to document the blessings that God gives me. The smaller the better.
I am so tuned to see the big as what counts (especially when I get trapped by comparison), so I am only focusing on the small things that equal a happy life.
I know that waiting for the big things will cause me to miss the bounty before me.
I hope you are all off to a great start in 2016. Let’s count our blessings!
