Count Your Blessings!

It's amazing how quickly the last 8 years have gone by. We were counting our blessings as we celebrated the 8th Anniversary of Redemption Baptist Church. Praising the Lord for His faithfulness and provision through the years.


When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.


Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.


When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.


So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.



It was a blessing to have a potluck with church family. One of the greatest blessings was going to Caleb Village for hymn sing on Sunday night. Singing many of our favourite hymns and visiting with people afterwards. Looking back on how faithful God has been over the years. Looking forward to seeing what He has for us in the years ahead. Seeking to serve Him with everything we have. Not exactly knowing what will come in the future, but knowing He will be with us.
