...Thanksgiving

Share
Hi there,

Today is all about being thankful. Thank you, thank you, thank you Lord.

Thank you for my mind, i am sane, able to think for myself and make rational decisions.
Thank you for my body, i aint no Halle Berry but you have made me beautiful both inside and out.
Thank you because I can walk by myself, talk by myself, run to catch the bus. I can breathe, eat, sing and even cry.
Thank you because I have a family who loves me even when I am not perfect.
Thank you for my friends, the true ones who stick with me through thick and thin.
Thank you for my pastor, who stretches me until I become the best that I can be.
Thank you for my job, it puts food on my table and clothes on my back.
Thank you cos i have ten fingers and ten toes, when i hurt my big toe, i kinda knew how important it was to my overall well being.
Thank you for Jesus, salvation was free for me but not for you because You had to watch your only Son die because of me.
Thank you for today, i know i have messed up big time but as I rise to embrace the day I am reminded of your words that 'Your mercies are renewed every morning, great is your faithfulness' so I know that I can make a fresh start.
Thank you for London Underground and the Silverlink, i know the trains don't always run on schedule but at least I finally make it to where I am going.
Thank you for being my Rock and Refuge, being someone and also somewhere I can go when life seems to be too much to handle.
Thank you for even the disappointments, heartbreak and pain that You have allowed. I know sometimes it has been of my own doing but even when I don't understand, i feel your love more when i know i truly don't deserve it.

There are so many other things that I am grateful to you for. I am sorry for being so into myself and having a pity party sometimes. When I look back over my life i know i can truly say that 'The Lord has been good and gracious', my shield and defence, my strong Tower. You have done so much for me. Thank you.

In difficult moments of our lives, it is important we look and start thanking God for the things that are actually working. Even when all seems lost, remember it is only those who are alive that can still fight to get to a better place, so start with that. Let today be a 'Thank you Lord' day and let me know if it makes you feel any better.

Remain blessed and have a great day

Me

This is a blessing - despite everything going on in my life - I have so many reasons to be grateful. I'm thankful God brought this message my way today.
