A Year Full of Gratitude – Part 1 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ƒโœ

Gratitude must be our consistent attitude and our praise must be more than just a phase but all too often some of us who have been greatly blessed do not bless God gratefully or gracefully. We simply fail to maintain a thankful heart and a bold expression of gratitude to God for all he has done for us. For those of you who donโ€™t already know, my word for 2019 is GRATITUDE. It has been a full year of expressing gratitude. My gratitude list for today is as follows.

Lord today I am grateful to be alive. I am grateful that I survived 11 months and almost 29 days of this year with your grace, strength, hope and wisdom.

I am grateful for my experiences, both pleasant and sad, but most importantly I am grateful for a closer relationship with your son Jesus Christ.

Lord I am grateful that you allowed me to see that life is fragile and fleeting and must not be taken for granted.

I am super grateful for the blessings I have, family, friends, health, and freedom to worship God.

I am grateful for the time spent with my family and friends, celebrating, crying, laughing, reminiscing and smiling.

I grateful for this platform that is easily accessibe, affording me the opportunity to express myself in writing. Writing makes me feel alive.

I am grateful for the memories made this year, some I will never forget. I am grateful for the lessons learned, mistakes made, challenges and struggles, some I either overcame and others I stumbled over.

I am grateful for everything. As I pause and think of God’s love and care for me throughout this year; my heart sings with gratitude and my eyes are filled with tears.

Take a little time today to reflect on the things you are most grateful for and give thanks to God. God promises that he will multiply those who are grateful.

Jeremiah 30:19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.

As always thank you for reading. Feel free to like, share, leave your thought or reblog. Until we meet again in this spaceโ€ฆmuch love and blessings.โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

I am Fay Ann, and it is pretty simple. I am a firm believer in God and a Christian blogger who loves writing. My mission is to encourage others to continue living for Christ and remain faithful, focus and fervent. I know God loves me and he also loves you because you are His child; and his nature is to love His children. I am here to declare Godโ€™s praises to those who donโ€™t know him so they can find his marvellous light and leave their world of darkness. It is also my desire to become a channel of inspiration and hope to other people especially women who are struggling. I also have the passion to inspire young people to live their life with a purpose for the Lord. I have learned that what milk is to a babyโ€™s body, the word of God is to the soul. It is the food that fuels healthy spiritual growth and just like your mother used to tell you, if you want to grow you need to eat. I feel strongly that these daily reminders of Godโ€™s word and presence in our lives is key to maintaining a Godly perspective as we begin each day; and pray that you will be inspired and blessed by the daily devotionals and are passing them along to family and friends. My favourite activities include reading, writing and spending time with great friends and family. I love to share the best thing in my life, the gospel. Letโ€™s be stronger together. You can subscribe below to receive free grace-filled devotionals for your encouragement. God Bless you richly. Shalom.
