In a world and society like ours here in the U.S., it is easy to get caught up in the abundance of material things. Sadly, our communities have equated blessings to how much money we have, the cars we drive, the home(s) we own, and being viewed by others as successful.
One of the first questions we ask someone when meeting them is what they do for a living. Depending on their answer, it is often how well they are received.
If someone is a doctor, they immediately gain our favor and respect. If someone states they work in fast food, many are disinterested, and the conversation is shallow and short, as if their life is of little value.
However, we are truly blessed when we can see God’s favor in the small things, and prayer can help us come to that understanding. Our life, health, family's well-being, and relationship with God are the priorities we should value the most.
By recognizing God's blessings in our lives, we can have peace, no matter what is happening around us. We can have hope when circumstances appear hopeless. We can live with a joy few around us would understand.
This article will look at Sunday blessings to help us remember what's important in life and set a positive tone for the days ahead. But first, we will define what a true blessing is and why we must remember what's important in life.
What are Blessings?
Blessings are God’s gracious favor upon someone’s life. This favor from God is a gift that He bestows on us simply by asking Him through a heart of faith. So, when we pray to God, we ask Him for blessings to guide us when we need direction. We ask Him for the blessing of protection over our family and friends.
Additionally, we seek the Lord for the blessing of strength to make it through some of the most challenging seasons of our lives.
It is through recognition of those blessings that we are humbled and thankful. We realize that if it had not been for the blessings of the Lord, we would not be as successful, at peace, and joyful as we are in life today.
Why It's Vital to Remember What’s Important in Life
Sunday blessings are necessary to help us remember what is essential in life. And Sunday, as our day of rest, is a great time to physically rest. We can rest in the faithfulness of God and rest in His peace and presence.
The first day of the week is a time to reflect on our need for God spiritually and yield to His refreshing presence through prayer and meditation to start our week.
It is a time of healing from experiences of the past week. It is also a chance to reset physically and mentally from yesterday's activity, stress, failures, and disappointments.
As you reflect, you can focus on priorities and regain perspective as you seek the blessing of God to be with you and your family.
You can reflect on the faithfulness of God. It will give you peace for the future as you meditate on His love and how far He has brought you mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
You can see how far you've come as a person and be proud of the progress God has graced you to make.
It's important to reflect on your relationships and how they best serve you in becoming the person you hope to become. And reflect on what you can do, by God’s grace, to best serve those around you.
Lastly, it's vital to remember what's important because having an attitude of gratitude in life attracts blessings.
I always say, “Praise and be raised, complain and remain.” Complaining and ungratefulness leave us lacking as we fail to appreciate the blessings of others in our lives and God, who is the source of our blessings.
Complaining and ungratefulness also cause us to become stuck in an endless cycle of negative thoughts that damage the part of our brains used to solve problems and function cognitively.
However, gratitude and praise open doors and give us favor with man and God as we remember what’s most important.
