We try not to take God's blessings for granted and give thanks to Him each day for all blessings that we receive. Yet, being human, sometimes we forget about the little blessings that are truly monumental, when compared to those who have them not. Just now, I was blessed again to be included as a recipient of such a beautiful message. Amen to each and every word.So, I am passing this on to each of you so that you may be reminded that you are truly blessed.
If you woke up this morning
with more health than illness,
you are more blessed than the
million who won't survive the week.
If you have never experienced
the danger of battle,
the loneliness of imprisonment,
the agony of torture or
the pangs of starvation,
you are ahead of 20 million people
around the world.
If you attend a church meeting
without fear of harassment,
arrest, torture, or death,
you are more blessed than almost
three billion people in the world.
If you have food in your refrigerator,
clothes on your back, a roof over
your head and a place to sleep,
you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you have money in the bank,
in your wallet, and spare change
in a dish someplace, you are among
the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If your parents are still married and alive,
you are very rare,
especially in the United States.
If you hold up your head with a smile
on your face and are truly thankful,
you are blessed because the majority can,
but most do not.
If you can hold someone's hand, hug them
or even touch them on the shoulder,
you are blessed because you can
offer God's healing touch.
If you can read this message,
you are more blessed than over
two billion people in the world
that cannot read anything at all.
You are so blessed in ways
you may never even know.
Saifu ***-up! and stop playing the 'repentant American'?....what do you Americans know about the mercies and blessings of YAweh? with you fake preachers and TV channels!!. you Yanks and STILL GOING DOWN! Its funny how Americans these days know who Yahweh is? for so long you treated YA like he was just some person who would condone your actions as long you said 'God bless America' but HE has shown you and your nation that HE is all-powerful.....NOT your U.S.D which is collapsing - ha haa!!
Stop your 'especially in the United States' trash!!....you country is going down as you sleep, as you go to work, as you sit on the toilet seat? - lol! You Americans treat YA as if he belonged to you all this time but HE was only giving you a chance to repent even as far back as MLK's time; but being the GREEDY AMERICANS that you are your own greed took you out in the end. Your only calling out the name of YA be'cos you are really suffering now as a nation. 50 million of you on food stamps, another 50million with no health cover, a fake house-ni77a of a presedent who done not know his left and right, a nation in hardcore decline borrowing $4 billion per day!!??........YA gave American at least 50 years to repent well even before MLK's time; but America being the devil incarnate said 'we are a God besides God'....even though we have no culture, no heritage, no foundation we will still classify ourselves as a God even though we have no forefather - *** society??
STOOPID! you shoulda know i woulda replied your fake thread.
Go away USA and stop meddling (murdering) in other countries affairs. (You will never get hold of God-fearing ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN!...Yaweh continue to bless Iran as he has done sine 1979; in the name of Jo'su'a (Jesus).
Iran and all of the Middle East are backwards! If you believe your going to Heaven and recieve how ever many virgins you are a total nut job! You guys commit suicide (martadom) murder innocent people treat women like garbage when the Bible says she is your equal - you know what I really don't have the time at the moment to really lean into your ridiculous statment! Islam was created almost 600yrs after Christianity. Have great day, let me get back too work.
yeah you getta get back to your work you looser-American-biscuit-muncher!!
....and then again HOW COME AMERICANS DONT SAY 'GOD BLESS AMERICA' NO-MAW???.....LOL....STOOPID!

Siafu very wonderful to see you here. Thanks for the revamp of my "attitude of gratitude".... I needed to count my blessings.....
Amen! We all need too be reminded at times! Being in South America for 3mth reminded me of the struggle. My story and childhood story seemed insignificant!
Let's keep this afloat people! Forget the nonsense many bring too this forum and talk about real issues~!
Siafu how about the words 'AMERICA REPENT'??......have you thought of telling your country men to repent maybe?? Just be honest and say Americans have never really had no intentions of repenting. Many spiritual American pastors and clergy consistently told Americans to repent as far back as the 1950's including MLK!!? It very strange that Americans have to wait until their economic situation is dire before they even acknowledge that a creator exist? They pretend to be spiritual.... especially with the words 'God bless America'...as if as soon as they said that then YA would come running to bless America?? - real sad. Just face it, America is under a permanent judgement; its very obvious my friend.....you yourself know this. So why dont you start with the repentance issue PUBLICLY!!!
its very obvious in your tone (siafu) that you realise that America is in serious trouble! Some time ago you would have come out flying at me; but i see you grown the wiser - lol!
America has blasphemed consistently right in the face of YA. The leaders, the people, the Holywood films, the entire culture is geared towards hating YA! This can only be a very devilish people who would go about their civilisation like this. Americans are VERY BITTER AND BROKEN PEOPLE indeed. You hear it in the way they talk - yes even the black Americans (whom i have nothing to say to these days!!). They spew real hatred in their talk. Its only when they leave America is when they start acting nice and civilised - like the ones in London - lol! - acting so nice because they know they are not on home ground to act their normal trashy selves. You dont respect other civilisation or other peoples on this earth; meanwhile you even have a culture of your own?? - everything copied - EVERYTHING! There are other peoples on this earth who dont have to subscribe to Coca-cola or 'slam-dunk-isms'?? - lol This lack of respect is the main reason why America is so hated so much across the entire globe! - even the Canadians are funny about you - WOW!!
@ Hamilton-Barracuda Thanks for the laugh! Couldn't you express your negativitey elsewhere?
@ Hamilton The longer this stays up It'll drive you crazy, I aim too do so!
Hamilton remember we have to give account for ourselves(individually) and not others, I think you missed that!
...a very miserable response.......reflects a broken people.....
Kill the Budda
Did you eloquently remind people that they need to be thankful for what they have then in the same thread throw a whole region and religion under the bus?
People who claim to be Christian did and still do all sorts of unchristian things in this country. Islam does not own the copyright on dysfunction. In our society and even in the church women are not exactly viewed as equals. There has always been a well established patriarchal system in Christianity too.
I'm not siding with Hamilton, who seems to be on some other shhh, but you may have dismantled the point of your thread and in a way made Hamilton's point.
And the Beat Goes On!!!
@Kill the Budda
...err Iran is a peaceful nation which is heavily respected and liked around the world including AFRICA!....something most of you black Americans know nothing about???.....Vladimir Putin of Russia is actually a devout Christian while the demons in Washington are satanic worshippers?....if you recall the Soviet Union was aesthetic but soon found their Christian foundations and returned to them .........but i would understand why Americans would not want to repent b'cos it would mean loosing too much face in front of man. but you people need to stop using YA's name to defend your crimes.....we all know America has NOTHING to do with Christianity but all to do with materials and devil-worship to get the MAMON. Yahweh is exposing your nation piece-by-piece just like he has done with people like Eddie long and the other large 'Church-industrial-complex' in America and he has not finished exposing false profits is the USA. Your entire nation is delusional and any American who seeks to expose his nations' illness is quickly ridiculed as a 'conspiracy theorist' which is code for ' dont ask any real question in this country....we Americans dont like truth....we only go by what is said on CNN, ABC etc, etc'
Stop using Christianity and just say 'yes Conti, we Americans like MAMON; thats all we live for! the next fix....you see Conti we dont have any culture or foundation or heritage or language like you guys...so we only believe in MAMON.....this is our life'?????
@Kill the Budda
im certainly not on the side of America...i dont believe in America and never have. You black Americans have no choice but to believe in uncle Tom...err sorry i meant uncle Sam. Thats why im glad i was not raised in the open prison which is the USA. I believe in return of REAL culture and indigenous peoples around the world to return to their heritage, culture and belief's systems. This is happening now as the west collapses and rest rises. Obviously as an American this does not favour you because, as i said before, you simply have no culture?? (please dont classify Coca-cola or Hollywood as a culture - that would be a disgrace to the word 'culture'...please keep on 'slamin hoops' while you *** 'Security-moms'?....this is all you Americans know..........sad maa'aan...
Your entire country is based on hatred because thats the way it was born - out of hatred when one thinks about the slaves and the killing of 40 million Ethnic Indians. This is the reason why the black Americans themselves have so so so much hatred in them - not necessarily due to slavery but they have taken on the image of the white American man that they claim to hate?? - not sure. The black Americans, who one would think had a conscience due to their sufferings under the same system that alive today, will go along with 'Sam'....thats their only choice right now.
Americans will NEVER repent - they have got to the point of no return. The materialisms got too much in the end.
Kill the Budda
Did you read what I said to siafu?
@Kill the Budda
Iran,Yeman, Syria, Afghanistan - Hell all of of the middle east and Northern Africa are nothing but pedophiles and there religion condons it!! Virgin brides my azz, just a bunch of sick old men!! 1 Samuel 15:3 this is what is called for the middle East!
@ Kill the Budda Under the Bus and now Stomping on them!
Siafu go away!
...its Friday and im getting board of this thread - LOL!......................go kiss on your Obama poster in your bedroom - haa!
I love you too my brother! Hope you have a great day!
Siafu, stop trying to be a nice, friendly American these dayz...too late for that my brother??.....stick to your ;George Bush' Gun-ho menatility....
