Gratitude Day 1: I Thank God

in busy •  11 months ago

Mere words can never be enough to articulate how much I thank You
Although sometimes the goings are rough but I made it
Lord my God when I reflect on life and just how far I've come
You've sustained my path, kept me through it all

It was a cold and dark night. My mother warned me not to travel at night. I didn't argue with her, but I traveled anyways.

After a heavy rain, our car hit the road again. The ground was wet and slippering and our driver was driving pretty fast. No one saw the trailer coming behind us. In a bid to dodge a ditch of water in front of us, our driver swerved in front of a trailer. The trailer was supposed to hit our car but for some bizarre reason, it missed us by a matter of seconds. It drove right in front of us and fell on the other side of the road. I can't really explain how we didn't get crushed that day. It was God that saved us.

Today I want to thank God for his loving kindness and tender mercies. There are so many ways that he has blessed me. God is the source of my joy and the strength of my life. All that I have and all I am is traced to his infinite mercy and grace.


Listen to Gratitude by Byron Cage

I live with a sort of confidence that there is someone watching over me, whispering in my ears and telling me what to do every time. My greatest enemy is my fear. But once I look into God's word, my fears are drawn in love. God's love is infinite, his mercy is boundless.

This is day 1 of my #gratitudeday challenge.

yeah me too
this is the point of this whole 62 days challenge

i am grateful to GOD for you

This is good! Sometimes the best way to get more from God is to have a sense of appreciation for what he has done already but we are humans and our wants are insatiable. We often focus on what we don't have whereas we are yet to show gratitude for one's He has done already.

God, I'm grateful.

To God be the glory, to whom all blessings flow. Thank God for sparing your life. The Grace upon the house will always rub off on you. Listen to mummy next time o brother, she must have sensed something in her spirit and I am really happy God showed up. He is always on time.

I am definitely on this one sir. Expect mine later...

I don't need a prophet to know that you must partake in this series. If nobody participate, you surely have a million reasons to do so...

I will surely squeeze out time to participate in this.. Gratitude is a sign that man has not lost his sanity.

Hahaha yes o, my brother. I have millions of reasons to be grateful. Gratefulness does enlarge the heart and brings about humility.

I would love to see you join too.

Thank you for your support always. Means a lot to me.

His covenant of protection is always sure over our lives.

All glory honor and praise be to unto his holy name.

@tojukaka, am uplifted with the song Gratitude by Byron Cage..
It's really inspiring..
Thank you..

This is wonderful. As I read through this post and other entries, I got inundated with reflections

Here's my expression of gratitude

Blessings

When I started reading this, I had no idea it was a contest, and was just going to say how grateful I am that with all my failings and mistakes of 57 years that my God, my wife and my children still love and forgive me.

I feel weird saying that and then going for some financial benefit for having said it, so I will resteem only to get the word out.

I thank God for His deliverance in that accident for you and yours, as well.

If you want more in life be grateful to God for what you have to attract more.

Folle m e
My up me

We have so much to be grateful for! Thanks a gazillion Toju for this opportunity. I made a post about gratitude recently;

This absolutely buttresses my point. We all need to reflect on our blessings and the people who have been blessings to us and find ways to celebrate them.
