It should be no surprise to anyone who’s been part of our Natural Living Family for any amount of time that one of my favorite Bible verses about blessings is John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”
This verse defines and propels the very essence of our Bible Health ministry as we use our website, social media channels, free screening, books, and newsletters to spread our message of abundant life in Christ Jesus. It is our mission in life to let the world know that the blessing of the Lord is our birthright, which includes abundant health and wellness in EVERY aspect of life!

The Gift of Grace and Blessing
When we look at our lives as Christians it’s incredible to see all the ways the Lord blesses us. He doesn’t just save us with His grace for eternal life one day to come, but He blesses us and guides our steps through the here and now.
There are so many ways in which He blesses us and an abundance of ways that we are supported in our lives.
But we don’t just automatically have an easy life because we are Christians nor do we seek blessings for selfish reasons. I cling to Jesus’ words in Matthew to seek first HIS kingdom as a reminder to keep my priorities straight.
And it certainly doesn’t stop seasons of trials from coming our way. But in my walk with the Lord I’ve learned to thrive during “survival mode” as I call it. No matter what hardships we may face, we know that the Lord will see us through.
There are so many areas of our lives where the Lord has blessed us. Whenever I find myself struggling with gratitude or discouragement, I meditate on these Bible verses about blessings and find myself filled with an abundance.
As we read in the book of Ezekiel (the book of the Bible we named my youngest son after), “I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.”
How has the Lord blessed you today? Take time right now to thank Him for that!
