Count your blessings, see what God has done

Food crisis in Haiti

If you had edibles to your full and clean safe water to drink; the next time your crabby mind compels you to complain about your situation at least be mindful of the fact that children somewhere around the globe are eating dirt.

Circumstances have become so substandard for the underprivileged in Haiti that women are toiling all day long even for whole nights just to ensure “their children have something in their stomach.”

After the entire tough grind, these Haitian mothers are merely able to purchase a “batter” that consists nothing but “dirt mixed with very little vegetable shortening, salt, and occasionally sugar.”

For their hard-up children it is utterly usual to eat these “cookies of dirt.” However, it is not only the children who gorge on these dirt cookies but adults also fill their stomachs with these unpalatable cookies.

A woman miserably explained saying, ”It breaks my heart to give these cookies to my children; but, I would rather give them something than nothing.”

This is a disheartening situation. So next time, just when you harbour the thought that “you have nothing in life,” you merely need to find out about so many more less privileged human beings.

This is an authoritative reminder to count your blessings which God has given you.
If you are able to get edible meals, label yourself as truly blessed while in lieu of this several continue to complain about the insufficiency of blessings keep grumbling against God and demand more.

This is the time, to have another look at your heart and be thankful to God for all the blessings that He has showered on you, and do not forget to pray for and reach out
those who have close to nothing.

The Scripture says:

“Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.” – Proverbs 28:27

and

“There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be open handed toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.” – Deuteronomy 15:11
