I realized something after I finished praying this morning and as I listened to Linda pray. We all have things that we take for granted, blind spots in our thankfulness if you will, that the Lord has provided for us and we have never even thought about what this life would be like to be without.

It is important to take an inventory of your blessings regularly to serve as a reminder of all the blessings of the Lord. The Lord’s blessings fall on everyone, the just and the unjust, good and the evil, all religions, races and creeds receive the endless bounty of the Lord in this life. Not so in the afterlife.

No one can ignore God after death. The transition to the afterlife passes through God’s gate… Jesus. He separates the worthy from the unworthy, the grateful from the ungrateful, the saved from the lost.

If you wish to continue to receive His blessings in heaven for eternity realize that you have to acknowledge that you are a sinner, completely unworthy of God’s love and that Jesus is the Son of God who gave His life so you could be reconciled with the Father.
