It's almost the end of 2018.
Today, I posted a selfie photo in Instagram and Facebook overlooking outside my house, with the caption "Counting the Blessings".
I am so thankful to God for this year. Why is it important to count the blessings?
I believe, counting the blessings makes me humble before God and men because by doing that I realize more and more that that blessings come from Him and it is not about me. That is why, every day, we declare as a family that we are blessed and highly favorite. So, as I look at this year, it is just amazing to go through what the Lord has done. I wrote in my previous blog about working with my wife. Yes, it is worth mentioning that one of the blessings of 2018, is working with my wife, Olivia. She has done a great job bringing our business to a new level. God has given her wisdom to manage different teams, clients, and "her husband".
Another important reason to count the blessings is that it reminds me of the goodness and the mercy of God. There were situations that we could have been hurt like in a car accident but the Lord protected us. I was driving on a highway and the family is in the car and suddenly I see this four wheel drive coming from the back really fast. I am on the fast lane and it is one of those moments that you are not sure whether to give away or stay in your lane. I decided to quickly give away and I felt the four wheel front tire touched the bumper of my car and he overtook us. I stopped the car and noticed the black marks left on the bumper but nothing serious. So, I thank God for protection.
I count the blessings as it reminds of God's favor. We have experienced a lot of favor in our business. We have clients that in the natural way was not possible to have a deal with, yet God opened the doors for us and every time He will put someone that favors us. Many people do not have a revelation of God's favor. It is a very powerful truth. Expect His favor in your life. It is real.
I count the blessings of God because by doing this, I will receive even more blessings in 2019. It is the principle of sowing and reaping. I sow gratitude and I will get even more to be grateful next year. Yes, I believe 2019 will be a greater year. So, what are you waiting for...count your blessings, NOW!k here to edit.
