Blessed are...

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kngdom of heaven.  Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted. 

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.  Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. 

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. 

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 

Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. 

These verses are from the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible in the book of Matthew Chapter 5 verses 3-12. The photos were taken by JennyEBurr, wandering around the family cottage. 

Sometimes I just need the reminder that no matter what happens, God is truly aware and in control.  He is blessing me through all of the circumstances in my life. 

I am truly blessed. 

You are also very blessed. 

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for the many blessings which you have given me. In Jesus' name. Amen

Your turn: Are you feeling blessed today?
