Realizing that we often fail to appreciate our blessings, I decided to go through the alphabet and identify some blessings available to everyone.

A—Adam
God made Adam in His image. Adam was the first human and from him we were all descended.
B—Beauty
There is beauty surrounding us in nature in everything from the tiniest grain of sand to the vast expanse of the sky.
C—Comfort
The Lord is always there with comfort for those who call upon His name.
D—Destiny
Regardless of your situation in life you can partake in God’s manifest destiny for mankind—eternity in His presence.
E—Earth
The planet on which God places us came pre-stocked with everything needed to sustain human life.
F—Faith
We can all have faith in our Father and that faith can sustain us through good times and bad.
G—Genes
Those marvelous building blocks were used by God to create us in His image.
H—Hope
There is never a situation in life that is so dark that a glimmer of hope is not present.
I—Intimacy
All humans can have an intimate personal relationship with God. We need have no intermediary between Him and us.
J—Jesus
God sent his only begotten son to offer salvation and everlasting life to us all.
K—Kindred
By virtue of our humanity, we share a kinship with every other human on earth and through Jesus Christ we can all become Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
L—Love
We are loved by almighty God and each of us has the capacity to love and be loved by others.
M—Memory
Memory is a great gift God built into all humans that allows us to learn and remember and build upon our past every day of our lives.
N—News
The “Good News” of the New Testament is available to all as a guide to living life according to God’s Holy will so that one day we can be with Him for all eternity.
O—One
There is One true God who has made Himself known to us and cares about our well-being.
P—Prayer
Prayer is communication with our Father in heaven—a direct “telephone” line to Him that requires no service contract.
Q—Quench
We are able to come to Jesus who can quench our thirst forever. (John 4-14—But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.)
R—Richness
Whether we are rich and poor in material things, we all have an equal opportunity for Richness of spirit.
S—Salvation.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Salvation is available to all.
T—Trust
We have one blessing upon which we can always depend, our trust in the Lord.
U—Understanding
Though other people may not understand us, God always does.
V—Victory
If we obey His commandments we are all promised victory through Jesus.
W—Wash
No matter what we may have done, we can all be washed spotless in the blood of Christ.
X
An “X” is sometimes used to “mark the spot”. God has an X upon every one of us, knowing even the very hairs on our heads. He knows exactly where we are and He is with us always.
Y—Yield
As we sow, so shall we yield. This gives us a sure and certain knowledge of how the way we live affects our future.
Z
This letter, the last of the alphabet, assures us that God, the alpha and the omega—the beginning and the end—will be there to meet us when earthly life is over.
