20 / 20 HINDSIGHT

This morning, my friend DEBRA posted this to FB: 
This was my reply / comment: #SharedWithPermission

I usually just ignore or delete the 

“If U share this with 55 friends within 55 seconds, God will…”

I used to believe, seek for, and be secretly thrilled when people would say to me: “Jim, God is going to REALLY bless you because of all the things you do for…” 

The unfortunate side was that when I didn’t see (or others didn’t tell me about) God’s blessings, it was my fault. “Oh crap, I must’a blown it! Now I gotta start all over! Again!!

Gradually, I have learned that I AM (already) BLESSED! BY GOD!!

I’m also learning that I don’t always recognize God’s blessings. They are sometimes, often (usually?) disguised. Some of my most intense difficulties and struggles have become the times of greatest change in my life for the better. 

  Counting your blessings is best done with the vision of 20/20 hindsight. 

There is a HUGE difference in working / giving “TO BE Blessed” and doing it “BECAUSE U R Blessed!” The first is bondage. The second is freedom.  

P.S. – God’s blessings does not always involve cash!

P.S.s. – I can’t remember when anyone told me: “This Pain, This Struggle, This Conflict in Ur life, Is God Blessing You.” But lots’o times, it was!!

Feel free to share a comment about Ur  blessings that came disguised!

If U share a comment, God will bless U within 33 days…  

…Ok,I’mSorry,IjustCouldn’tResistThat! lol

This post is a thought regarding God’s blessing upon my life:
