Does someone’s #feelingblessed hashtag make you happy for them or roll your eyes? ‘Blessed’, like ‘love’ has been so overused it’s hard to know what it means anymore.
In Ephesians 1 Paul tells us we’ve been blessed by God in the ‘heavenly places’ with every spiritual blessing there is. This is no happy thought directed our way from God or a lucky find like R20 in your pocket. This is a deep, full-out expression of God’s commitment to and love for you.
The best part? The dark, broken, messy parts of our lives – the things we normally like to keep in secret – get to be blessed by God too. You don’t need to drag that stuff around like a stinky kit bag.
Invite God into the light and dark places – I think you’ll like what begins to happen.
