    Count Your Blessings

    A Closer Look at 30 Hymns of Gratitude

    Ancient practices and hymns of gratitude bolster the faith of modern believers with updated selections from Osbeck's best-selling books

    Science, history, and Scripture all agree that gratitude is key to living a joy-filled, peaceful life. Even knowing the facts, believers still struggle to find thankfulness in the normal daily grind, let alone life's most difficult situations.

    Using the powerful stories behind thirty hymns as examples, Count Your Blessings is filled with solid, practical wisdom and calls on the believer to seek God's goodness in a world that does not promise an easy life. Each reading contains guidance for how Christians can "take every thought captive" and choose joy.

    Each hymn is paired with Scripture readings, wisdom from historical Christians, a meditation, and a practical application. Perfect for individuals, families, or groups, the stories surrounding the hymns foster appreciation for how history undergirds contemporary faith and will move Christians toward a new depth of worship and devotion.
