...Thank You Lord!...

...It is sad that it sometimes takes seeing someone else in a worse condition before we appreciate what we have. That being said, I'm just as guilty so I do not judge...who am I to.

The past two weeks have been heavy for me, but today I realize its been so because I made it so...I let myself create burden where there wasn't any; the issues are there, but its like I keep saying take control Father, but in reality I'm not giving Him room to actually take control.*sigh* I'm saying take the wheel, but I'm not letting Him drive. I keep stressing and worrying over tomorrow, what will happen, I need this I need that, why isn't it working for me like it is for others... I have forgotten to say Thank You for my daily bread, thank you for the little things... So today, I'm saying:

Thank you for the gift of life, some people didn't mke it to today but here I am. Walking. Talking. Healthy. I can see, I can think...

Thank you for my family, for the trying times that u've gotten us through. That at the end of the day, we still have one another to be there for each other. The unconditional love that binds us is a reflection of ur undying love towards us.

Thank you for my relationship. For giving him patience and wisdom to be the man that he is. Bless the work of his hands Father, and continue to guide us and order our steps according to ur word, and continue to be the rock on which we stand.

Thank you for my school work. It is not by my power Lord, but ur unmerited favor that continues to find me. Thank you. Help me to be the best I can be.

Thank you for my job. U gave it to me and now that it has come to an end, you will again bring to me what is mine. Thank you for my internship search, continue to do ur thing Father.

Thank you for my friends. For their understanding, love, laughter I bless u Lord. Never leave them or forsake them Daddy, may they have the Holy Spirit to guide them always.

Thank you Lord! Thank you Lord! Thank you Lord! My heart and my soul say thank you. For all you've done and what you continue to do. Thank you. I am sorry for all the time I have been selfish, that I have been unappreciative, for getting mad unnecessarily, for losing focus of the blessings that u have sent my way...I am sorry. Thank you for not forsaking me...Thank you.

Thank you Lord!

NB: We always get caught up in the rush of the world and life itself, but when we can we should say Thank You. Its never too late...NEVER. Hope everyone had a fabulous and a blessed weekend! Love you guys much!

Talk to you soon,
xoxo,

Miss Enigma!!!

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.Habakkuk 2:3
Our God is faithful...

Always great to remember to thank the Lord. It is surely not by power, simply grace and favor. All the best to you and yours dear.

True Words...i spent most of last week in this frame of mind...deciding to thank God more for the things i had rather that whine about the things i am yet to receive and how things seemed really tough

It's always important to give thanks even when things seem rough... Thank God for life.

I'm no stranger to days like this......and like you said, it is sad that sometimes it actually takes seeing someone else's condition before we remember to be thankful.

but He is always faithful to us.
