Pleased To Bless

“Now You have been pleased to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue before You forever, for You have blessed it, O LORD, and it shall be blessed forever.”  1 Chronicles 17:27

God doesn’t begrudgingly bless us.

Lord, knowing how pleased You are to bless us, blesses us doubly.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Doubly Blessed                                double kitty blessings

When we do
something for others
oh, the blessing
that alone is

then just imagine
God’s delight when
we thank Him
for each of His.

  1. How wonderful, Sis Deb!! Being a blessing–and being blessed! It is so true that God does not begrudgingly bless, but rather delights in it. Praying He pours it out abundantly on you and Aubie today~~love, sis Caddo

  2. Debbie,

    Thank the Lord, He does not bless us grudgingly… even though He would have good reason to. Before salvation we mocked HIs name, spit in His face and sdid all we could to keep HIm out of our lives. What grace He shows in blessing us without reservation! Thanks for another great reminder. Lord bless.

  3. two kitties! double blessing!
    thank you for the thank you reminder…I am off to start my day with it .
    Blessings doubled to you dear friend… I thank God for you

  4. God takes great delight when we become a blessing to others…but far to often we don’t bless people the way GOD intended us to…

  5. A Christian told my wife, “Cats are a blessing from God.”

    Oh well, the man was probably correct, but there are days when I doubt his words.

  6. Amen,amen! What a mighty God we serve his blessings to bestow,and oh how blessed we are in him Amen. Wonderfully Done!
    Love you dear friend and “Happy Friday”! 😀

  7. Such an amazing thought to contemplate that God takes pleasure in blessing us! Such an encouraging and uplifting way to start my day :)May you be forever blessed xx

  8. Thank you for the blessing of your prayers for us Sis Caddo Delight! You make me smile twice as much. 😀 God bless you doubly today, as you hear Him say how much He loves to bless you! love and prayers!

  9. I am rejoicing with you over that kind of grace, that blesses so freely! It causes me to look and be thankful all the more, knowing He is abundant and delighted to pour out His blessings on us . .. how many do I miss and forget to say, “thank You” for? God bless you, Rob, as He delights to do you good today!

  10. Oh sweet faithfilled fisherlady! You bless me, over and over. Thank you for getting the picture, poor of a photographer as I am! haha! I kept thinking of what I could use, to show double blessings? Then there they were in a rare moment, close enough together for me to get a shot. God bless you and the beautiful way He blesses us through you! love and prayers!

  11. So true, dear Desiray! Praying that I respond to those nudges to bless many times over, as often as He does to me. (that ought to keep me busy!) God bless you and yours above and beyond what you can count today!

  12. 😀 There are those days, aren’t there, when the blessing of kitties takes a magnifying glass to see. I get to see it more, though, doubly, because Aub loves her kitties and the joy on her face as she scoops one up and holds her, blesses me too. God bless you and your kitties too! They do make good pictures for your blog!

  13. God bless you, precious Pat, and how you love Him and the blessings He brings. Then you share Him and multiply it all many times over! Yay for Happy Friday! There’s a blessing and a half right there! 😀 love and prayers for you a sweet weekend!

  14. I agree Aimee . .. there was just something about thinking of Him enjoying blessing us .. .whether we understood the blessing or even thanked Him. He just loves to do it. Make me love Him all the more, just thinking of it. 🙂 God bless you muchly today! He surely delights in you and sings over you too! love and prayers!

  15. Very pretty and beautiful. – Moskowitz

  16. God bless you hugely today, poet friend, as He smiles upon you and calls you His! 🙂

  17. >> “just imagine God’s delight when we thank Him for EACH of His blessings”
    Why Deb, that would take forever because His blessings are innumerable!

    Praise God we have forever and that is what we will be doing for ever! Our praises NOW are only a taste of how wholehearted they will be throughout eternity.

    Praises to an amazing God!

  18. Loving thinking about getting to praise and thank Him forever! 🙂 To understand how very much He has done for us and blessed us. Thank you, Mentor Angela, for stirring up the gratefulness!
    God bless you and your heart that praises Him always! love and prayers!

  19. Pleased to bless – not pleasing to be pleasing (the old snare that so easily entangled by foot). Thank you dear Deb!

  20. Oooo, “not pleasing to be pleasing”. You just have such a wonderful way of gracefully understanding our hearts. God bless you, gracious one, as He lovingly and excitedly blesses you today! love and prayers for a good night!
