Sometimes, I just want to say thank you.
Here’s my simple gratitude list for today:
I’m in awe and wonder of a God that loves me infinitely more than I can even imagine. That not only sent His son to take my place on the cross and rise again for me, but also left me with Holy Spirit and longs for relationship with me. One of my favorite characteristics about God right now is His creativity. Looking around, I’m just infatuated with how beautiful the world around me is, and that He created it for no other real purpose other than for us to enjoy looking at the world we live.
I’m on my knees in gratitude for my community. I don’t even know where they all come from but there are so many people who love me so deeply, so truly. People I can laugh with and cry with. People I can lean on. People who have my back even when I don’t know it, and who will fight for me in ways I don’t even know to ask for.
I’m beyond words for the beauty of my story. And that my past doesn’t have to be my future. That I get to transform the pain into a huge purpose to reach and inspire others facing the same lies I had to kick in the teeth.
I’m also thankful for sunsets, dogs, fresh vegetables, coffee, freedom, technology, air conditioning, writing, worship music and nurses who can put an IV in like a champion.
Gratitude will change your life every time. If you need a shift in perspective this week, stop and think of three things you’re thankful for. I promise that it will change things.
What are you thankful for today?
