I Am Thankful

I am thankful for my life, all the beauty and brokenness of it. Each part of my life shapes me into the person I am, the person God is creating me to be.

I am thankful for the truths the Lord continues to reveal to me. He loves me more than I realize.

I am thankful for God’s grace. I am so thankful that no matter how many times I fail, he still loves me.

I am thankful for God’s strength and mercy throughout the past year…it’s been a rough one. I have had my down times but God’s word and promises brought me up each time.

I am thankful to God for continually teaching me how to trust Him in all things.

I am so thankful for the blessings I have in spite of things being very unsettled and difficult financially and emotionally right now. God is faithful.

I am thankful for my singleness. I never thought I would say it out loud. I see broken relationships all around and I’m grateful that I don’t have the stress of trying to make something work. I thank God for the protection of the potential bad relationships I could have stayed in, but ended.

I thank you Lord for each and every blessing and strive to share those blessings with those who don’t have what I have!

I have so much to be thankful for from a tangible perspective but also and more importantly, from a spiritual perspective.

I cannot thank God enough for all his goodness, blessings and even the bad situations too as those times have brought me closer to him.

Being thankful in ALL things gives me a heart of gratitude that pushes away despair, leading the way to a life of gratefulness that only God can provide!

Let us constantly be aware and give thanks for the blessings seen and unseen that surround us daily. And in this way, let us “Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. Give thanks in all circumstances” remembering that this is “the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
