At the end of the day, I am thankful that my blessings are bigger than my problems.
“Yet I am confident I will see the LORD’S goodness while I am here in the land of the living” – Psalms 27:13
“Every good and perfect gift is from above coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights Who does not change like shifting shadows” — James 1:17
Often, the trials in this life are God’s mercies in disguise although our limited human vision fails to see this from a loving heavenly Father’s perspective. We pray for diverse reasons to ease our worries, anxieties or sufferings from the many challenging complexities of life. Little do we know that when our prayers and petitions ascend to God’s throne of grace, He hears each spoken need and our desperate cries for help. We pray for peace and prosperity, for the blessings of comfort and healing for our families to assuage our pain and anxieties and we pray for God’s protection in our conscious moments as well as when we need to slumber in peace.
In the toughest and battling circumstances of our life, we pray for wisdom longing to hear God’s voice in our hearts. However, when we don’t sense His presence and our prayers seem unheard, we cry in anger and like a spoiled child, begin to doubt His goodness and love as if every promise of His Word is not enough. A thousand times we fail the God-Man Who shed every drop of His Blood for all because He loves us. Our human eyes disregarded or failed to see His Redemptive Love on the Cross for us that all our iniquities may be forgiven.
Shouldn’t we then begin to count our blessings more than our shortcomings or problems? Let us, therefore, declare that we are blessed because He loves us, and we see His countenance whenever we pray.
Let us thank Him for the many blessings that our limited vision cannot see and for the countless wonders of His creation. His Blessings can come in the form of raindrops, and His healing, through tears. He works in ways our human eyes cannot see and our human understanding cannot fathom. The irony of life’s contradictions manifested in challenging trials that we need to overcome are at times, God-sent mercies in disguise. Sometimes, the trials of this life: the rain, the storms, the sleepless nights, the betrayal of a friend, the agony that darkness seems to be winning, the greatest disappointment and the pain of our broken hearts – Each of them is the unveiling of a greater thirst this world can never quench because they can only be satisfied by the Divine Mercy of the Heart of God. And our human hearts are blessed because of the limitless love and tender mercies that the Heart of our Heavenly Father never fails to give daily to ailing humanity.
