GRATEFUL FOR GETTING OLDER

I woke up this morning and thought, today is my birthday. All I felt was an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I had my shower and sat down to write in awe that I’m still here to do those things.

I know that so many people, even young people, never get to see their next birthday and because of that, I am choosing to not only acknowledge the day, but celebrate the priceless gift of life which is incomparable.

My mom had this joyous blessing, and on the 3rd of April it was the due date to let the world experience her greatness.

Today marks another milestone in my life’s journey and I couldn’t be happier. To God be the glory for allowing me to open my eyes to see another birthday.

Heavenly Father I am here before you today celebrating another year of your grace. On this special day, I just want to thank you for the priceless gift of life that you have given me and for the wonderful people you have placed in my life. I am so grateful to be alive. Gracious God, I thank you for enabling me to celebrate my birthday.

I am grateful for another year you have added to seek your face in truth and spirit. On this day, I pray for a peaceful day and supernatural guidance in the days ahead.

Singing, dancing and praising you Lord is the least that I can do to show my appreciation for including yet another age to mine.

As I celebrate my birthday today, I am immediately overwhelmed by feelings of gratitude to you Almighty God. Over the last year there have been many major changes that have happened in my life. Some good, some not so good. But, they have brought me to a place where I yearn for a deeper understanding of the word of God.

Lord today I sit in gratitude for all that has been given, all that has been taken, all that is left. I take nothing for granted and I am so grateful I have learned to be grateful! I truly enjoy the ‘simple’ things in life. I am abundantly blessed and profoundly grateful!

Lord truly you have been good to me all these years and I thank you for all the blessings I have received but especially for life itself. I am thankful that you have extended me grace over the past years. I’m thankful for the hardships life has brought and the blessings it has brought too.

You have been really good to me. You have trusted me with much and have blessed me to live another year to celebrate life. Truly I am thankful as I see you enlarging my territories as you continue preparing me for more than I can see. I am grateful that you continue to cover me in favor. I take nothing I do for granted. I take nothing I have for granted. I am humbled when I call on you and you are always there, through the many storms and challenges placed along my path. Thank you Lord for all you continue to do in my life.

Oh Lord, I offer my prayers today. I am thankful for the gift of life yet again. You have given me another day to love, Thank you Lord. I pray that today you watch over me as always. I start today with the prayer of thanksgiving to you, please accept my prayers. Send the holy spirit to teach me how to walk in you according to your will for my life. Let me be more and more with you and live in you oh God.

Today as I celebrate I pray for grace that I may continue to live and enjoy a purposeful life with wisdom to graciously overcome life’s hurdles and faith to reach my destination.

Thank you for another magnificent year added to my life. Thank you for the countless blessings I have received throughout the year. Thank you for my loved ones who genuinely cared about me, for their love and support.

Thank you for the many challenges, frustrations, fulfillment and triumphs that made me who I am today. Thank you Heavenly Father, I could never have made it without you. Thank you for the simple yet fulfilling life. Thank you Lord for another day of life.

It’s a great feeling, honor and privilege to enjoy a divine selection from the almighty God. Thank you, Lord, for the addition to my life. Although there was many years of ups and downs, but your grace kept and I will forever remain grateful to you, my God. On this very meritorious moment of celebrating my birthday day, I offer a special prayer for my mom, my dad , my siblings, my spiritual father, my friends.

The depth of my gratitude is beyond measure and all I can say is THANK YOU LORD and I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!

“Oh that men would give thanks to the Lord for his goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!” – Psalm 107:8
