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 I no longer represent moi.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.
