“You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.”
“You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.”
“You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.”
“You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.”
That’s a few of the Beatitudes from Matthew 5 (The Message). I’m an outlier, so they comfort me. Hopefully they comfort you too. We all need a soft blanket for the soul from time to time.
