Blessings crown the heads of the righteous,
but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked. Proverbs
This verse intrigues me. It tells me that the righteous
people will receive blessings from God. There have been times when we
wonder if we have done something we shouldn’t because we must go through
something that causes us hurt. We learn something from those times, something
that we might not have known and, yet have needed to know.
Some things I have experienced through this pandemic have
been there all the time; I just didn’t realize they were. Yes, there have been
struggles but out of these struggles have come some blessings.
On the other hand, I hear and read of stories that a
person was responsible for personal hurt to another individual, either
something they said or did to cause major issues. Sometimes, these hard feelings
escalate and cause more and greater problems for the individuals involved and
even for our society.
As Children of God, we must remember to thank Him for the
way He blesses us. This must become a daily habit.
For some time, I have had trouble falling asleep at
night. Two different friends have said they spend time, after their heads hit
the pillow, just thanking Him for what He has done for us and what He has given
us, not asking Him for anything. I decided to try it and I have slept better
than I have for quite a while.
