Five Minute Friday: Blessing

Today I am joining the Five Minute Friday writers. We all write on the same prompt for just five minutes, and then we gather together to share our posts.

We used to gather at Kate's blog, but Five Minute Friday has a new home! We now meet on the Five Minute Friday website. You are invited to join us there.

This week the writing prompt is: BLESSING.

God's blessings are abundant in my life. I have been given so much more than I deserve!

As I count my blessings, I think of:
  • a house that feels like a home
  • a loving husband
  • two children
  • food
  • an old van that keeps on running
  • a wheelchair, walker, and seat cane
  • running water
  • toilet paper (this is seriously something I think about - I am so grateful for modern-day toilet paper!)
  • clothes
  • ice pack vest to keep me cool in the summer
  • air conditioning in the summer
  • heat in the winter
  • medical care
  • dental care
  • family and friends who come to visit me

The blessings go on and on!

But if all of those things I just listed were taken away... what then? Would I still be blessed?

Yes. Because the most important blessing I have received is the gift of salvation. Though everything earthly be taken away, my salvation can never be taken away.

If salvation was all I had, I would have more than I ever, ever deserved.

Jesus suffered the wrath of God in my place. His righteousness has been credited to my account. I have been forgiven of my sins. My debt has been paid in full. I have been saved from the eternal punishment I deserve. I have been given an eternity I don't deserve, and could never earn, in Heaven.

What an amazing blessing!

What are some of the blessings you have in your life?

Do you know the blessing of having Jesus as your Savior and your sins forgiven?
