Thankful


I don’t know where to begin. It seems the cliche thing to do to give thanks during this time of year, but I’m going to do it anyway.

I am tired of wanting to thank people and not doing it. God has given me so much, and I want to be thankful for it before it/ they go away and it’s too late. So, here I go.

I am first and most thankful for my unchanging God. He loves me despite all my insanity and when I don’t express thanks for what He’s done for me. You, Father, life me up when I am down. You keep me strong when I am weak. You keep my life full and complete. I praise you, Beautiful One. I cannot express enough gratitude, and I cannot wait for the day when I see your face.

I am thankful for Stephanie Sidow and Meredith Sommer. You mean more to me than I can even put into words. You ladies are amazing Godly women who have shown me that I can be a better person than what I think I can be. I love you.

I am thankful for the BCM Lead Team. You follow the Spirit, and it shows through your dedication to challenge people to grow in the Lord.

I am thankful for the BCM. God really used all the people in it to show me a better way of life. I came alive the moment I stepped foot in Towne View for my first Fusion.

I am thankful for my amazing prayer warriors. You know who you are. Without you, I can not stand and fight this battle alone.

I am thankful for my church. It was truly a God thing that brought me to it, and it is God who keeps me there. It is an amazing place to call home, and all of the people I have encountered there are a blessing. I never could have imagined a better place to go to in my times of need.

I am thankful for my family. Despite it all, we find some way to stay strong and together. Your support for what I am trying to do in my life is what makes this all possible.

I am thankful for the people who have been sprinkled throughout my life who have had a great impact on it. Whether you be a friend, an old teacher, a supervisor, or spiritual counselor, you have changed my life for the better.

I am thankful for the strangers in my life who hold the door for me, cook and serve meals, and all the other things no one wants to do.

I am thankful to all those who have done me harm. Without you, I would not know the things I know about me or my God. Through you, I have held fast to my Lord, and He has shown His faithfulness. God bless you.

My life is impossible without God and without His children He has placed in my life.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Know that if I could thank you properly, I would literally die of gratitude.
