Blessed Be The Name Of The Lord

“And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Job 1:21

I was driving home from my part-time job last night and I was thinking about different issues and problems that I have to take care of in life. Nothing too out of the ordinary, just regular life problems. While I was thinking about what I need to do, a thought popped in my head. I thought to myself, ‘Man, the Lord really hasn’t done nothing out of the ordinary lately in my life’. Now I don’t know if that is a good or bad thought. I wasn’t trying to discredit the Lord for everything He has done in my life. Then I thought that we forget to take time to thank God for what He does for us on a daily basis.

Everything we have, everything we lost, the Lord has been in control. Today, I just want to list some of the ordinary blessings that I receive on a daily basis.

My health and the fact that I have been able to wake up every morning, blessed be the name of the Lord.

My wife and just how great she is. I know that I don’t thank her enough for everything she does for myself or our girls. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

My two beautiful, little girls. The joy and happiness they bring into our lives everyday. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

The house the Lord has provided us. It may not be the biggest and fanciest house but it is way better than we deserve. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

The car that the we have. It is a reliable car and my favorite thing is that it is good on gas. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Both of the jobs I have to provide for the family, so my wife doesn’t have to work. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

The church I attend and have the opportunity to serve in. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

The King James Bible that I have the opportunity to read and study. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

My parents and my siblings, the family that I am blessed to be a part of. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Safety and protection every day as we live in a crazy world. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

The friends that I have in my life who help and encourage me. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

The food that I am able to eat each day, blessed be the name of the Lord.

Although I feel that my life has been ordinary recently, there is nothing ordinary about the blessings of the Lord. Each day I should be extra thankful for the extraordinary blessings I have from the Lord. Everything I have, I don’t deserve. I could be in a position that may seem worse than I am in now, but the Lord has given me everything I need and more.

Take a moment today and stop and thank God for your life and everything that He has given you.

Blessed be the name of the Lord!
