I'm Blessed as the Poor {Friday Flashback-ish}



Years ago in small group, my husband forever challenged my definition of what a blessing is.

It's not health,
or comfort,
or ease,
or prosperity.

IT IS WHATEVER POINTS YOU TO CHRIST.

If we believe Jesus is THE greatest joy...
then ANYTHING that draws us closer to Him = a blessing.

Sickness.
Poverty.
Heartache.
Loss.
Joy.
Comfort.
Discomfort.

WHATEVER ushers us into the Presence of the Holy Spirit... into reliance on Him... that is blessing.
