Counting my blessings

Gratitude is an excellent antidote to sin in my life. Living out of my own strength and losing myself in my own junk both lose their appeal when I'm grateful. barlow_girl and I talked a bit about gratitude last night over dinner (stemming from a book she just finished), and its importance has been sinking in more deeply ever since. I have so very much for which to be grateful; I don't think I'd ever stop being amazed if I simply kept my eyes open and my heart honest.

The blessing I most need from God is His Spirit opening my eyes and softening my heart to how richly He has already blessed me.
