Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you. And make your name great: And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed. ~ Genesis 12:1-3
I will save you that you may become a blessing. ~ Zechariah 8:13
I believe we are blessed, not so we can hoard our blessings and hang onto them for dear life, but so that we can share them and bless others.
I have been incredibly blessed in my life with family, friends, opportunities, health, a beautiful piece of land to live on, a church family that is supportive and encourages constant growth, and most especially, a loving relationship my with Father God and my Lord and Savior, Jesus.
