Grateful

source




Life changes in an instant – one day you’re on top of the world, the next day you feel totally humiliated.

Sometimes you feel like a loser and nothing’s going your way, and then you get that unexpected call and things start looking up.

One day you’re healthy and then you pass out in the park in a near death experience and discover you have vasovagal syncope.

Sometimes in life we want things so bad and we wonder why it’s not happening.
Some want to be married.
Some want children.
Some want a job.
Some want a new house.
This list could go on and on.

And then we see others who have what we do not have and sometimes it’s all we can do to keep smiling, because really, you’re hurting, frustrated, aggravated.

So though I get discouraged, I do know that I don’t have to stay discouraged. I’m grateful that I have God in my life, because honestly I don’t know how I would make it without Him. This peace that comes is surreal. I can go through difficult situations and somewhere in them realize that He is with me, and know that this too will pass. Some phrases sound so cliché, but I like this one – "With Christ in the ship, I can smile at the storm."

I’m grateful. In spite of circumstances, I choose to be grateful.

What’s happening with you? Are you grateful?

  1. Yes I am grateful however there are things I do desire and they have not come to pass yet. I know if I continue to be grateful over the few things I do have, God will soon bless me with the desires of my heart! I am thankful that God is faithful and in His time He will bless me with all I desire.

    Thanks for this post! It truly blessed me! :)
