Strictly speaking, none of us (as universally sinful humans) "deserve" any good thing from a holy God. 

That being said, God does not allow anything to happen to His followers without a purpose. It has been my experience that, often, the perception of events (even those that appear adverse on the surface) as "blessings" is a matter of perspective and response, and also of asking oneself what long-term -- although, in some cases, very long-term (i.e., eternal) -- objective God may be progressively trying to achieve in pursuit of the ultimate goal of molding us into the likeness of His Son (Romans 8:28-30).

Beyond making a conscious effort to conform your attitudes and conduct to the guidance given in Scripture, also consider how you could deal with perceived "un-blessings" in a manner that brings you closer to Him -- even if it requires adjustment of your own perceptions, attitudes, and priorities.
