HOW BLESSED ARE YOU ?

Oftentimes I'll ask someone how are you and the response invariably is "girl I'm blessed! Let's examine what it means to be blessed. Webster defines blessed as: "enjoying the bliss of heaven". So could it be that we are limiting what it means to be blessed? Our thoughts as scripture says are not like God's thoughts. Maybe your concept of being blessed is based on the fact that you are living better than the people you know. Could it be that your blessing gauge has nothing to do with bliss or heaven. Yes, many of us are blessed with health, family, employment, food, and housing. Could it be the previously mentioned blessings are just the tip of the iceberg? God said prove me and see that I will bless you so much that you will not be able to contain it (paraphrase). Now that's BLESSED!
