As the year closes I can’t help but reflect on 2018 and just be grateful to God for all that he has done for me. As the song says, “Great is your mercy towards me, your loving kindness, I see”
It’s been a great year! Yes, there have been sad moments but it’s life. You can’t have the good without the bad. I remember when I used to pray for the things I have now. And no, this isn’t about boasting.I’m just genuinely grateful to God for what he has done for me. God is Good ya’ll.
Have you had those moments where you’re blissfully happy and you’re wondering, “How did I get here?”, or, through your storm you’re wondering, “How am I going to get through this?”. And then you remember that God is reason why you are happy now, and you’re grateful and He is the one that is going to get you through your storm because the evidence is there that he has done it before. Have you?
One of the happiest moments of my life this year was when my mom agreed to go to the hospital to get treatment. It was hard to get her there but I remember just praying and asking God to let her agree to go. Because I don’t know if most of you know this, but it’s hard to get someone who has mental illness to get treatment. And she is well now thanks be to God.
Another happy moment that I remember is when I started this blog. I had no idea what I was doing but this is something that I’ve always wanted to do. I used to waste so much time focusing on things that didn’t matter, that I didn’t realize I had a purpose. I didn’t realize that I had these talents waiting to burst out of my skin.
And sometimes we’re so caught up in our problems that we don’t realize how blessed we truly are. Sometimes we don’t realize how far we’ve truly come.
Looking back, I would never had dreamed to have the job I have now, working from home and taking care of my family. All I have now is because of God. I could have never made it this far without Him. And I know that this is just the tip of the iceberg, I know that he has bigger plans for me and I’m grateful. I just have to keep going and trusting him.
Life isn’t easy for anyone. I’ve lost friends along the way, some family members but I’m grateful for that because God is setting me up for the ones who are mean’t to be in my life. I’m grateful for the group of friends and family that I have because they’ve really been there for me throughout the years.
Something that I’m learning along the way is to, “Give thanks in everything “,because it makes room for the things that are truly mean’t to be. Not everyone you meet is supposed to be on your journey. And that’s ok.
One of my goals for 2019 is to be more grateful. Gratefulness eliminates complaint and worry, because you can rest assured that God is with you. He has been with you in the past and He will continue to be there in the future as long as you trust him.
Gratefulness is the key to happiness.
