A Year Full of Gratitude – Part 2 πŸ™ŒπŸ’ƒβœΒ 

In times of pain, stress and hardship it might seem difficult to be grateful. But if you really think about it, we all have something to be grateful for each day.

As I continue to reflect on the Lord’s goodness to me and my family during the year 2019, my heart swells with gratitude and praise. I have so MUCH to be thankful for this year.πŸ™ŒπŸ‘

Today I am grateful for the love, support and kindness of my friends and family.β€πŸ’―

I am grateful for God’s love for me, the ability to read his word and most importantly, the privilege to communicate with him daily.πŸ™

I am grateful for the challenges and the hardships that helped me to draw closer to God, who promises to work things out for my good and his glory.

I am grateful for my financial struggles. The times that I had to go without taught me to appreciate all that I have. Also, in times of financial need God revealed himself to me and shown me that my basic needs will always be met.

I am grateful for my alone times, these moments allowed me to enjoy reflective time in my own company, alone but far from lonely.

I am grateful that I experienced a season of spiritual drought, when God felt far and I felt alone. That season increased my faith, taught me to pray in new ways, and led to a wonderful period of spiritual growth.πŸ‘

I am truly grateful how God demonstrated his love to me through these months. Indeed my heart is overflowing with gratitude.

As always thank you for reading. Feel free to like, share, leave your thought or reblog. Until we meet again in this space…much love and blessings.β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯

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 God’s praises to those who don’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 baby’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 God’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. Let’s be stronger together. You can subscribe below to receive free grace-filled devotionals for your encouragement. God Bless you richly. Shalom.
