Counting our Blessings

" Give praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing. Those blessings come from the heavenly world. They belong to us because we belong to Christ. God chose us to belong to Christ before the world was created. He chose us to be holy and without blame in his eyes. He loved us. So he decided long ago to adopt us as his children. He did it because of what Jesus Christ has done. It pleased God to do it. All those things bring praise to his glorious grace. God freely gave us his grace because of the One he loves. "

What a BEAUTIFUL picture of God's OVERWHELMING love for us. As I was reading these verses to our 5 year old Ethan, I was blown away (again) that God decided long ago to adopt us as His children! Through our adoption in Christ, we have been BLESSED with every spiritual blessing. It just makes me want to give God a HUGE HUG and THANK HIM for this awesome and amazing gift.
