I'm a Witness!

Good morning daddy,
How're you today? How's the saviour of my soul, your only son Jesus? How're the angels especially the one called Michael? I'm sure heaven is as peaceful as ever and prettier than i ever imagines it to be.

It's been a minute since I gave thanks through this medium. I've been so busy but not too busy for you Lord, you know how grateful I am to you in my heart (or am i?). I probably have whined at you in the past few weeks for some odd reasons, dear Lord, forgive me...

I'm grateful to you for who YOU are...you have many names Lord, and you continue to show me the meaning of those names. You're rapha - my healer, Jireh- you provide for me, Shalom- you give me peace. So many names Lord, some I don't even know the meaning...but one thing is sure, you always step up for me even when I haven't seriously asked for help. You're my hope...

Everytime I have the opportunity to think, I can't help noticing I have one of the very best husbands in the world, a supportive man. You gave me my very own personal and customised cheerleader...thank you for a working marriage and a man that believes the best of and with me ALL THE TIME. It's something I couldn't buy Lord.

My family is well, no one is ill, oh they complain as all humans do but seriously, they have no major issues...and for that i am thankful.

Thank you Lord for always using us as a blessing to somebody. Sometimes i feel like there are too many people asking to be 'helped' or 'blessed' but then it's a priviledge and i'm just so grateful we're not on the other side. Isn't it even more blessed to give than to receive?

I prayed for a certain someone dear to my heart, when all looked bleak and it looked like there would be no breakthrough, you assured me there would be a good end. I am starting to see it, infact, a miracle has happened already. Thank you Lord, i will keep trusting. You're the God who works miracles.

I'm grateful for the doors of opportunity...i'm a writer, you told me to stay in my place and look what you'remaking of me. You're opening doors that even if i knocked by myself might have remained shut. I always see your hands Lord.

I thank you Lord for my friend aloted, for that day years ago that we met and for the friendship we share...words cannot express how grateful i am for this friend like a sister that you have given me!

So many things to thank you for Lord, I thank you for the opportunity to think and find reasons to be thankful. There are more Lord but let me mention these few so the person reading this can add their own reasons.
Thank you Lord.

So many things to thank God for and counting . . . His faithfulness is indeed forever more and even in the midst of our failures and faltering, He remains faithful for He cannot deny himself. I’m glad for the ‘friendship made in heaven’ that you have continued to share with Aloted. I wish you guys grow old and gray as the best of friends.

Yay for the spirit of thanksgiving. I'm thankful for yday, and it's less-than-ideal situations cos it is through them that I know that today is a much better day....and that tomorrow will be an even better one. Also thankful for open doors. I'm grateful that His answers are always yay and amen! I appreciate my father for giving me his spirit and mind so I that I never lack wisdom and creativity.
Most especially, I'm thankful for his word - both the written one and the one that comes to us live through his spirit.


Aww thanks for inspiring the above, lady. May his grace continue to keep you and those you're thankful for.

A great "conversation" with the Almighty. The I am that I am. The Alpha and the Omega. The Jehovah Jireh . . .

I am thankful to God for ALL that concerns me! Thank You Lord for loving me despite my shortcomings.
