Count your blessings-Actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo writes inspiring piece
By Patricia Uyeh,
Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo via Instagram shared a inspiring piece on staying grateful. According to him, people should desists from complaining about their struggles but instead say words of faith or share testimonies.
“I believe the hymn “Count your blessings name them one by one” is to every Christian what the alphabet song is to every child of school age. The big question then is, how many times do we as Christians remember to apply that hymn. I have a friend who I share testimonies with, lately she has been greatly challenged and I have been praying for her and sometimes urging her to share her struggles but she wouldn’t.
“A couple of days ago she called me and said, she has been refusing the urge to pick up her phone and call me to share her struggles but decided to wait and call me and share her victories instead because she knows they will surely come.
“That really resonated with me and got me thinking. There is absolutely nothing wrong with sharing our struggles with trusted friends and family but sometimes instead of picking that phone and calling your best friend or confidant or whoever to lament about your woes, pause say a prayer believe God and wait to share your victories instead because there in lies true success.
“And, if you can’t wait and must really just call and talk to someone then start by counting all your blessings one by one and conclude by saying “I just called to share how wonderful my life has been”, then be still and know that God is God. Selah! #rmdsaysso #elevatewithrmd”
