You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope --- less of you & more of God and
You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you --- you are embraced by the One most dear to you
You're blessed when you're content with just who you are --- then you have everything
You're blessed when you've worked up a good appetite for God --- He's fill you completely
You're blessed when you care, 'care-full' --- you will be cared for
You're blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right --- you see God in the outside world
You're blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight --- discovering who you really are, and your place in God's family.
You're blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution --- drives you even deeper into God
If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that. "In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you."
