famous basketball coach John Wooden once said “If we magnified blessings as

much as we magnify disappointments, we would be much happier.” I wonder if

coach got that idea from David when he said, “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and

all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and

forget not all his benefits, who forgive all you iniquity, who heals all you

diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast

love and mercy, which satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed

like the eagles. The LORD works righteousness and justice for all who are

oppressed. He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the people of Israel.

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast

love” (Psalm 103.1-8). If we would just stack up all of our blessings beside a

stack of all of our disappointments, our stack of blessings would greatly

exceed the disappointments. Today I challenge you write down 100 blessings you

have received from God! Now make your list of…what were those things called
