Helloooooo! I hope my last post was a blessing. I just wanted to share something. There was a point in time where I couldn't remember anything about myself. It seemed as if all of my memories had been erased. As each day pass it's coming back to me. -- I'm thankful for that. It could be a song or a smell that'll trigger a memory or a feeling. So, yesterday while watching a movie with my nephew this song kept ringing in my ear.
"Your grace and mercy brought me through.
I'm living this moment because of you.
I want to thank you and praise you too,
For your grace and mercy brought me through."
I haven't heard this song since I was a child.
This song set off feelings of gratefulness! As I look back on where I was a year ago I can't help but thank God for what he's done in my life. I have to show him gratitude for bringing me out of the dark place. If it wasn't for his grace and mercy I would be dead. No one else kept me alive BUT GOD! And I'm beyond thankful; I'm grateful and appreciative all in one!! So I want to use this moment to encourage you to thank him! Let God know that you appreciate how far he's brought you. Let him know that you are grateful for the trials he walked with you through. It may have been bad but if he wasn't by your side it could have been so much worse. [insert feet stompin'] His grace and his mercy carried you in the midst of those tribulations.
I praise him in my own way but I feel his love whenever I do. When I look in the mirror I can see the grace and mercy he bestowed upon me. I went from barely recognizing my face to seeing all of his glory in me. I can't help but be thankful!!
Start with the simple things you know?
-You woke up this morning? Thank him!
-You were able to get out of bed? Thank him!
-You are in your right frame of mind? THANK HIM! [I thank ya!]
-A roof over your head?
-Food to eat?
-Clothes to wear? THANK HIM!
Let's stop treating God like he's only here to give us what we ask for. Thank him for doing things for us that actually makes our lives better!
Give thanks everyday yal!
See yal in the next post! Le'ssssss Gooooooooooo!!
