Gratitude, Grace and God.

“In every situation, be thankful and continually give thanks to God, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thess. 5:18.

“Never let the things you want, make you forget the things you have.” – Unknown.

This evening, I asked God to give me a heart of gratitude for who He is and what He has done. What led to that was pretty simple. I realized that over time, my needs and wants have clouded my mind and thoughts that I hardly give thanks anymore.

This is me sharing what I’m thankful for, having come to the knowledge that the life I should have must be a life with gratitude, grace, and God.

I’m thankful for the gift of salvation. It was undeserved, yet you found me when I was lost. You pierced through me, cut through me, opened me up, performed your surgical work in me, and for that, I’m grateful, Lord.

I’m grateful for the blessings that are easy to recognize in my life. And for those I’m yet to see, I believe you’re working.

For the times you led me through the valley, saved me at my worst, raised me when I was down, I’m grateful.

I’m grateful for the gift of life. The chance to see the light of day every morning is such an underrated grace, and I’m thankful for that.

My family, my blood, my siblings, I’m glad I have you.

My mum, my pearl. You’re never gonna see this, but I’m glad to call you mother. For the love, the sacrifices, the care… I’m grateful that you birthed me.

And friends…real friends. I’m grateful for the mutual assistance, commitment, loyalty, companionship, approval, and support. I love and appreciate y’all.

To the unnamed ones, those who came to me with a torch in the dark, I’m grateful.

And for me, I’m super thankful. For the progress I’ve made, for who I am and where I am, I’m thankful. For not always having to trust in what I have or who I am, I’m grateful Lord. And for your goodness and mercy that will follow me all the days of my life, I’m grateful.

And to those who had trained and nurtured me, I do not take the training for granted. You are all valued.

My fellow WordPress bloggers and friends, thanks for the reads, likes, comments and follows. I appreciate the love and acceptance. It means a lot to this young girl.

And for the many blessings I couldn’t or might have forgotten to pin down, I’m grateful for them all.

“When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.”
– Shauna Nrequist.

And this is what the Scripture says, “In everything, give thanks…” In times of challenges, crises, blessings, good and bad. It’s never easy, but it’s needful. Gratitude opens up doors for more blessings.

Not used to giving thanks? Give it a try now. Do it now, sometimes later becomes never. Start with a little word of thanks.

Practice gratitude.

“Don’t let life pass by without sharing what you’re thankful for.” – Matthew West.
