A letter to God

Dear  GOD:
I want to thank You for what you have already done. I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards; I am thanking
you right now. I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until people say they are sorry or until they stop talking about me; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears ; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves; I am going to thank you right now. I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and the house is quiet; I am going to thank you right now. I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or until I get the job; I am going to thank you right now. I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges are removed; I am thanking you right now. I am thanking you because I am alive. I am thanking you because I made it through the day's difficulties. I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.
I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do more
and do better.
 

I'm thanking you because FATHER,
YOU haven't given up on me.

God is just so good, and he's good all the time.

This is a wonderful way to look at things.  The Lord really does want us to be content with what we have and where we are.  And be thankful.

Great entry Christine-

That is a wonderful prayer Christine. I feel like that is a prayer of faith knowing that He will take care of all things concerning us if we are His child. You and your family are in my prayers. God Bless, Janie
