Thank you Jesus…..for today….for my fort….for my books….for CandyLand…

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.


Most every night before tucking our kids in for bed we pray as a family.  Traditionally we usually pray in the order of the youngest to the oldest. After a day full of talk about the next year such as health, employment, shelter, food, etc, my youngest begins the prayer.

He has always been a thankful little boy.  He would thank me every time I would change his diaper.  One of his first words was Hallelujah.

He started praying…

“Thank you Jesus…..for today….for my fort….for my books….for CandyLand…for Daddy’s desk…..for Daddy to have coffee…..for pillows….for food to eat….for all these things….amen.”

He was counting his blessings.

While we were worrying all day about things that God says He will provide, my son was being thankful for the things that God HAS provided…not worrying ahead of life.

…counting his blessings….relying on God and being thankful for the little.

God says He will supply every NEED of ours. NEED.  WHAT’S IMPORTANT.

So don’t worry.  Relax.  Count your blessings.

Blessings, Erin
