I really cannot explain the peace and joy I feel within me. Life isn't perfect and things aren't perfect either, but despite all that may be wanting, I realize one thing; I'm blessed, I'm fortunate and I'm doing much better than I was in the past.
Nothing bothers me much these days, it's a kind of peace that only God can give. I'm at peace guys, I can't even explain this.
I've got love, I'm constantly being showered with so much love, either here on the blog, my mailbox, from my friends, a few love interests, my siblings and my parents. I can't even complain.
I've got a future that's filled with possibilities. For the first time in my life I have something that I've never had and that is vision. This is God's own work. For years, before all else what I've asked God for is vision. I need it more than money, success, a man or friends. And somehow God has finally blessed me with this. Of course I need certain other things to go ahead with what I have, but then I have the most important thing, so I know I have it all; God.
I thank God for the gift of a light heart. I think that comes with generally having good intentions towards others and carrying no bitterness in my mind. This is why I wondered how some people sleep at night (apparently some don't have an issue with bearing all the grudges in the world, they can sleep and snore soundly. LOL). But basically I'm thankful for a light heart.
I thank God for my blog readers. I don't mean to be cheesy or corny but I do pray for us all.
I pray most especially for those in a dark place; may God fill your lives with light so bright and make you smile again. May your laughter be so loud and pure that it compensates for all the pain of the past.
I pray for the single ones among us, hoping and waiting for their life partners; may love find you, may God connect you with your partners and flush out every time-waster from your life.
I pray for those suffering from broken hearts. May God heal your wounds, comfort you and sooth your wounded hearts. I pray that at the right time, and with the right person, you'll find love.
I pray for the unemployed among us. Dear Lord please do the needful. And even while they wait for that long awaited job, open their eyes and minds with ideas that can bring about self-employment or creation of their own wealth.
I pray for those who are crying in their marriages. Almighty father is there anything too difficult for you? That's a rhetorical question, I already know there isn't. Lord take control, restore love, peace and happiness to marriages that have lost the promises they once had.
I pray for those believing in You for the fruit of the womb. You said none shall be barren, therefore Lord, none shall be barren. Amen.
I pray for the sick; the physically and mentally ill. Heal them dear Lord.
I pray for all those who have reached out to me with love and kindness, who carry good intentions for me in their hearts. Dear daddy, these ones make me want to cry, they fill me with so much joy; who am I? They have no idea how much they do for me. I'm nobody before you Lord, yet I'm your child so I ask; bless them dear Lord, fulfill their hearts' desires. For the smile they have given me, Lord bless them with dance and laughter a thousand times over. Amen.
I was only going to thank God but there's no harm in praying, right?
I know times are hard and things may not be working in our favour at the moment, yet we've all got something to be thankful for. Please share, ok? Your thanks may just be the encouragement that the next person needs.
Have a blessed Sunday guys!
