It is Time To Count Your Blessings

With a grateful heart, the Believers’ LoveWorld nation prepares to thank God for a remarkable first half of the year of Greatness.
“Count your blessings name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done!”

Quoted above is a hymn published in 1897 by Rev. Johnson Oatman Jr., which is probably one of the most inspiring thanksgiving songs ever written by a Christian. Centuries after, this hymn is sung around the world in thanksgiving, reminding believers of the Father's gracious and undeniable benevolence towards His children.

On Sunday, June 29, 2014, churches across the Believers' LoveWorld nation will have another opportunity to count their blessings, celebrate and give thanks to God for the marvelous works that he has performed in their lives in the first half of the year of Greatness. In triumphant procession, the Lord has led his people from the month of Consolation to the month of Laughter, from the month of the Open Door to the month of Prayer; indeed, every month has advanced in glory over its predecessor!

The Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Healing School and the International School of Ministry, Pastor Deola Philips, explains what thanksgiving is:

Thanksgiving begins by recognizing God as your source and appreciating Him for specific things he has done in your life. It is expedient to put pen to paper in accounting for God’s goodness in your life, because testimonies inspire faith and give glory to God among several other benefits."

With testimonies of salvation, spiritual growth, divine health, financial and material blessings, new jobs, promotions, marriages and the fruit of the womb, and so much more, everyone has got something to be thankful for. 

This coming Sunday, beyond the elegant outfits that members of the Believers LoveWorld nation are going to be clad in, their most conspicuous attire will be a heart of gratitude and thanksgiving to God for a remarkable half-year. 

It is time to prepare your thanksgiving seed offering and start inviting family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to the special service. As you count your blessings, it will surely surprise you what the Lord has done!

LoveWorld News will continue to update you on the BLW Mid-Year Thanksgiving Service.
