It is very easy sometimes to get so overwhelmed with life's challenges to the point that we pay little or no attention to the good things going on around us. Amidst life's daily challenges, it's very important to look inward and find reasons to be happy and thankful. No matter how bad you think your situation is, there are so many things you can thank God for. Still wondering what those things are? Let me give you some good examples (1)You have life (2) You have got eyes to read this blog post (3) You are educated enough to read this as well (4) You have a roof over your head (5) You are not on the road begging for food to eat etc. Don't we humans take things like these for granted? Look around you or better still switch on your TV and see how many people are suffering daily either as a result of war or poverty.
My dear friends, take a moment to ponder on the goodness of God in your life...If you are thoughtful, you will be so thankful! You are not better than those lying critically ill on the hospital bed or those who cannot afford to feed but God in His infinite mercies has given you all these things you take for granted and you ought to appreciate Him for them.
As the Americans celebrate thanksgiving, a vital question keeps running through my mind "What am I thankful for?". I am thankful for who I am in Christ Jesus! It's amazing that God can love a naughty girl like me and then make me righteous despite my inconsistencies. I am thankful for my family, it has not been easy for us these past years but God has been our father, our strength and shield. I am thankful for all my loved ones, cousins and friends who have been a blessing to me in many ways. I am thankful for my RCCG, PSF and GMC family, it feels good having a Christian family who truly care about you. I am thankful for my job and amazing team, trust me when I say working with them is like working with family. I am thankful for who I am today and what I will be tomorrow because I know He who began a good work in me is able to complete it!
Let everything that has breath, praise The Lord ! (Psalm 150:6)
