Learn To Count

by Vivien Wade

Learn to count your many blessings,
Though this may be hard to do,
Because the numbers are so many,
To bring them all into your view.

Dwell not on mistakes of the past,
With thoughts that only subtract
Taking away your peace and joy,
When to negative thoughts you re-act.

Think on the many pluses in life,
That God has been sending your way,
So thank Him with a grateful heart
Give additional praise each day.

The Bible says to give God thanks,
In Ephesians five, verse twenty,
So do your math, continue to count,
His blessings that are so plenty.
