Blessings: 25 ways YOU may be blessed!

 My husband and I lost our beautiful townhome and had to move in with some friends. We only planned on living there until we got on our feet. Things weren't going well. God told me we needed to get out of there and leave everything behind besides our clothes. My husband and I were applying for emergency housing, looking in other states for places to live, and doing everything we could to move. Nothing was opening for us. One day things got so bad that we were forced out of the house. Our kids were no longer in a safe situation. We ended up going to a hotel for a couple of days and got on a Greyhound bus to Illinois. All of this suffering, this trial, this valley to be put in a better situation. Sometimes blessings aren't what's given to us but what is taken away. God knows what we need and what's toxic in our lives. We need to trust him to bless us in the best way, his way.
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1

 I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1 NIV

 Often we can't receive blessings unless we go through the trial of waiting. While we are waiting we should be praising him. Praise him for the blessings you've already received. When the praises go up, the blessings come down.

 When God decides to bless you, he will cause situations to come together in your favor. No matter what others try to do. -Christine Joyner
You're not stuck in your trial forever, this is just temporary. And this too shall pass. Be patient, trust in God, your blessing is coming.

Another thing we need to remember is that God will bless you based on your specific needs. He won't bless you with what he blessed someone else with. When you're obedient and delight in the Lord, he will give you the desires of your heart.
Count your blessings, name them one by one.
