I Am Thankful

Can I be honest with you? Can you handle this?

I am truly thankful for many things; I won’t bombard you with the list, as they are too many!

I am truly happy and grateful to God for some of the things that I’d thought earlier on, were a curse or from the enemy. Now I know that all things work together for my good. (Rom 8:28)

So here we go.

I am grateful for less traffic in my life, less noise and less “Martha Martha activities”. They made room and space in my life so I can hear God clearly.

Thank you Lord for connecting me to those whose hearts you’ve touched, and ordained our paths would cross.

I am thankful that I am no longer seeking human validation but God’s. I am completely lost in Christ and bad to the bone for Him

I am thankful that I am now one of those weird Christians I fought long and hard not to be like. A full-time Christian, not moon-lighting on the side. My walk with Christ is not a side-hustle.

I am thankful that I didn’t understand the implications of my prayers when I asked God to “use me Lord”.

I am so thankful that God allowed me to go thru some storms this year but He also gave me the grace to stay in the fire. Otherwise my weak self and I would have jumped right out. God you know me too well!

I am thankful that I am finally okay with not being liked. Never felt so freeeee!

I am thankful to God that He gave me a new name, a new image. I no longer represent moi.

I am thankful to God that all glory, honor and adoration truly belong to Him. No one can take credit for who I am today.

I am so thankful to God that He overlooked and forgave a lot of my ignorance. I sure needed forgiveness and “getting me out of my own way”.

I am mostly thankful for the ministry of the Holy Spirit. My personal Comforter, my Helper, my Teacher and Guide.

 Finally, I am thankful to God for my husband, children, Mama Gloria and Bukville readers.

My prayer is that our lives will continue to be an offering to Him.

  16. In my early days of blogging i was skeptical of “online friends”. With time i’ve learned that its possible to connect genuinely with fellow sister-bloggers online. Thank you for being a friend. I know God has brought us together for His purpose and I for one cant wait to see it unfold.
