We can become so focused on our circumstances on our journey of life and what we need at the moment that we forget what we already have in life. Life can be really tough at times~ it is true. We lose sight of all the blessings and benefits that we already have.
The Psalmist is telling us here to not forget all of His benefits~ all of His blessings~ His protection~ His love~ His compassion~ His mercy~ His grace~ His Goodness. See ~ what I mean? As we stop focusing on our troubles and trials of the day and turn our eyes on His benefits we are reminded just how much we are blessed.
May your 2016 be filled with all His blessings and benefits! May we all be challenged in this New Year to count the blessings more than we count the burdens of this life.
