Blessings Are Free

It Is Written, Proverbs 10:22, the blessings of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.
At first glance many people think this proverb is about money. What this proverb is really referring to is, the riches of blessings. We are all blessed in different ways, but the problem is most of us don't recognize the blessings, because we take them for granted.
If you have never been sick, you probably don't realize what a blessing good health is. You can probably name dozens of these blessings without thinking too hard. How do we get these blessings? Well that is simple, and a puzzle at the same time. We get them because God loves us. How He decides who gets what blessings, is known only to Him. He does not have favorites, so that doesn't enter into it either.
Since God operates His plan in our lives when we let Him, He knowing all things, blesses us  with the right thing at the right time, for as long as we need it. There is no way to earn God's favor or blessings. There is absolutely nothing we can do to deserve them. God gives us the blessings because we are His children, and He loves us. All we have to do is receive them. By being thankful for everything He has done for us, we are giving Him back some of the love that He gave us. Just as when you give your child something wonderful, and your child really appreciates it, it makes you happy, God is happy when you appreciate what He gave you. Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
