There are times when we believers can tend to be focused on the disappointments of this life. I’ve done it, but then I think about all of the good things we have that we take for granted. The ordinary everyday things that we probably don’t think much about.

We have a roof over our heads. Many are homeless, living on the streets or in their cars.

We have running water in our homes. My mother didn’t have that when she was growing up.

We have a private bathroom. There are places in this world where people have to use community bathrooms all of the time!

We have an appetite to enjoy our food. Some can’t do that because of illness.

We can walk. I’ve been more appreciative of that since it’s become more difficult for me to walk because of a deformity in my right leg. I’m thankful that I can still walk at all!

We’re not on our way to the emergency room! I remember last summer when Billy was in the emergency room and admitted to the hospital! I often thank the Lord for the “peace of the moment” for we “… knowest not what a day may bring forth” (Proverbs 27:1) That’s especially true as we age.

We know the Lord. We have been born again! We’ve read the Scriptures. I sadly think of the many who have left this earth and have never opened a Bible, or read even one Scripture verse.

We can choose to focus on our disappointments, or we can choose to count our blessings. There can be hidden blessings even in our disappointments when we know the Lord.

Do you know the Lord? Have you been born again?

My Salvation Testimony



I am alone, Elijah said,

What was the Lord’s reply?

Reserved are seven thousand men,

A remnant who are Mine.


Though prophets false abound today,

Hell’s gates shall not prevail.

There is a faithful remnant still,

Whose knees bow not to Baal.


They’re hidden ones around the world,

Christ’s Body here on earth,

United in the Holy Ghost,

Because of their new birth.


We have a cloud of witnesses,

The Lord stands with us too,

And brethren living in all lands,

This knowledge helps us through.


So when we think alone we stand,

Remember that it’s true,

There’s always been, there’ll always be,

The remnant, faithful, few.

Romans 11:3-4 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
