If I asked you what is your number what would be your answer? I’m not asking for your favourite number, or the date of your birthday or anything to do with numerology but a specific number. Can you guess what it is?
What is the number of your blessings?
I love the film White Christmas and in it is a song about counting your blessings. It follows when the character Betty cannot get to sleep, and as a lullaby Bob sings to her that she could try to count her blessings instead of sheep!
We all have blessings and they are from God. We all receive daily blessings too, however it might be that you are at a time in your life when you are in pain, in the midst of a disappointment, disillusionment or discouragement or in a ‘desert’ place. It is especially during these times when you need to take out your blessings, remember them and count them.
You may have some questions about blessings such as:
- How do you know when you are being blessed?
- Do blessings really occur each day?
- Are they the same every day, do they change?
- How do you know when you receive them?
- How joyous do they make you feel?
- Can you appreciate them without guilt or moans that you have waited so long to receive it?
- Do you feel overwhelmed when you are blessed?
- Can you overspill your blessings to bless others?
What are your answers to these questions? Contact me and let me know.
In my book Unfrozen, I talk about ‘Sunshine moments of blessings’. These can be when the blessings you receive are so good but you find them hard to receive – especially if you lack self-confidence, feel unworthy in yourself or undeserving. God wants to set you free of these feelings, and He loves a happy child – that is YOU, which is why He wants to bless you.
Jesus compared us as parents giving gifts to our children and asked if you know how to give good gifts to your children how much more will your Father in Heaven give good gifts to those who ask them? Luke also cites this speech and refers to it through the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 7:11 and Luke 11:13)
Where are you on your blessing continuum?
Sometimes it is helpful to write your blessings down and it could be fun to count your blessings this way on a daily basis.
Are you up for this challenge?
I have a PDF for you to start you off. I’ve even written the first blessing for you.

Meanwhile, as the psalmist says,
“May God be merciful and bless you. May His face smile with favour upon you.”
