Blessings are all around us

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work(2 Corinthians 9:8)


As I write this I’m sitting here looking at the sunset over the ocean in San Diego, CA.

So it’s easy to say that I am blessed. 

I get the amazing opportunity to look out from the deck of the beach house I rented and see the waves crashing into the beach and the amazing sunset that god is showing me.

And just a little bit ago we were tide pooling and these amazing girls found an octopus.  Not only did they find it, but they also showed it to the kids and then the kids messed around with it for a while.

As I said it is easy to say we are blessed!!

But here’s the thing.

I’m blessed even when we aren’t traveling, or things aren’t going the way I think they should be going.

Being blessed and knowing that you are blessed is a state of mind.

When I was younger and Jenna and I first got married and we couldn’t afford a pot to pee in (excuse my language, but it’s true) I still knew that I was blessed. Because God introduced me to an amazing partner for life.

Even when we fight I am still blessed that we get to argue together.

Or when the kids were born and pretty much every day we spend together is a blessing. We don’t have to get them new things to be blessed.  And I’m pretty sure that since we have had more than one kid there has never been a full day they have gone without fighting.

We still live a blessed life.

And when the business we run has TONS of issues (like every single day) instead of feeling cursed that things are running perfectly. It’s a blessing that we are encountering the issues that we do.  Because it makes us stronger.

You see God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called!!

Aback to my original point…….

Blessing is not a place that you go or the things that you get. 

It is a state of mind and is your choice if you choose to feel blessed or not.

And guess what?

No one can control whether you feel blessed or not!!!

It is 100% on you.  that’s right it is completely your choice whether you’re blessed or not.

Someone who wants to not worry about anything other than going to work in the morning and going home at night might think that owning a business is a curse. (heck I might even think that way sometimes. Lol)

But not me!!!

For me building the business we have built has been nothing but a blessing!!!

Another great example I got the opportunity to learn today is from my amazing queen, Jenna.

We went out as a family deep sea fishing. And it was all of our first times, except hers, she had gone before when she was a kid.

About 1 hour into our trip, Nathen started chumming the water.  (throwing up over the edge of the boat.)

Then about 30 minutes later Jenna joined him.

Then about an hour and a half later I decided that I needed to see what all the fuss was about so I joined the chumming.

Bless Jenna’s heart she threw up more than any of us.  And she was by far the in the best mood (except for Billy because he caught the most fish and didn’t get seasick, lol).  Afterward, the first words out of her mouth before we even got off the boat were, “That was so much fun, I am so glad that we went what a blessing!”

Personally, I was still trying to get over my sea stomach.  She was too, but her attitude of it all being a blessing was amazing.


Time to take action

Now is the time to take action!!!

I want you to think of the last time that you were blessed, but you didn’t realize it.

Can you think of any????

I have about 200,000 times!!!  Like being seasick just earlier today!  (my head is bobbing like I’m still on the water. Lol)

Now I want you to pause and give thanks to God for the blessing that came from it.
