*Question for you guys: I’ve still got a few words you suggested for Word of the Week. They are covenant, tears, and cherubim. Would you like me to do them and finish the series?*
Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD. – Psalm 144:15, KJV
What a simple statement. Happy are we! Or perhaps, happy we should be, because to be honest, none of us are happy all the time. This month, I’ve been studying T. R. Noble’s community verse, 2 Corinthians 5:17,”Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
This has long been a favorite verse of mine. It reminds me, as does Psalm 144:15, to look on the bright side. God has blessed me with so much, but I tend to dwell on what I don’t have. That’s not right! think of David – even when his life was so arduous, he praised God and looked at what he did have.
Even if it may be chiché, counting your blessings really is important. If I’m constantly looking at the cloud rather than the lining, I become unhappy. But the Bible says that God’s people are happy! Not only would I be depressing myself 😞, I could be hindering others from coming to Christ through my poor example. Now, that’s something to consider.
Thank you, Vickie, for telling me about this verse!
Do you struggle to remember to count your blessings?
Do you have any verse ideas for me?
