Be of good cheer

Everyday I try to start my day off on a good note amongst all that I need to do in a day.  I start it out by reading out of the Book of Mormon.  I am currently reading in the book of 3 Nephi.  I'm currently in the first chapter of 3 Nephi.  As I was reading I came a verse and these few words have been with me through the day.  3 Nephi 1:13 - "Lift up your head and be of good cheer..."  These words have been with me through the amongst all the other things I was working on.

Today was a difficult day.  I can't go into too many details with the world as to what happen.  The details stay behind lock doors and are kept that way.  I have been contemplating the answer to some of the problems of today.  When the pressures of life have come, today the following hymn comes to mind.  The words go as follows:

"When upon life's billows you are tempest- tossed, When you are discouraged thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings; name them one by one, And it will surprise your what the Lord has done.  Count your blessings; Name them one by one.  Count your blessings; See what God hath done.  Count your blessings; Name them one by one.  Count your many blessings; See what God hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?  Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?  Count your many blessings; ev-'ry doubt will fly, And you will be singing as the days go by.  Count your blessings; Name them one by one.  Count your blessings; See what God hath done.  Count your blessings; Name them one by one.  Count your many blessings; See what God hath done.

When you look at others with their lands and gold, Think that Christ has promised you his wealth untold.  Count your many blessings; money cannot buy Your reward in heaven nor your home on high.  Count your blessings; Name them one by one.  Count your blessings; See what God hath done.  Count your blessings; Name them one by one.  Count your many blessings; See what God hath done.

So amid the conflict, whether great or small, Do not be discouraged; God is over all.  Count your many blessings; angels will attend, Help and comfort give you to your journey's end.  Count your blessings; Name them one by one.  Count your blessings; See what God hath done.  Count your blessings; Name them one by one.  Count your many blessings; See what God hath done.  "

~Hymn No. 241 - Count Your Blessings~

So remember when life gets hard, Count your many blessings.............

 

Good night!!! Be of good cheer!!!
