After reading the comments on yesterday's post how many of you felt this way? I couldn't even read through some of them because I was afraid I'd get too emotional.
Some times we sit in our corner and bemoan our situation, thinking that ours is the worst, until you hear the next person's story. I was talking to a blog reader in Ukraine one day when she said "Thelma I don't know why you're complaining so much, you have had it easy". This blog reader is in her early 20s and when she told me just a little bit of some of her experiences, I wanted to get on my knees and say to God "Daddy thank you. Forgive me for my ingratitude, I've really had it good". My life is the farthest thing from perfect but when I hear some people's stories I just shut up and thank God.
After reading some comments yesterday I was in the mood for praise. Not because I'm happy someone else experienced the pain and not me, but because I'm reminded once again to count my blessings.
Yesterday a lot of us told tales of woe, today let us share testimonies. I want to hear how you overcame challenges. Tell us about the situation that you thought would bury you and yet, here you are, still standing. Or simply share with us the ways God has blessed you from!
I cannot wait to share a particular testimony with you guys. I'm certain that before December 2015 it will be ready and served hot. For now it's still marinating. Watch this space people! Haha.
Blink darling happy birthday in arrears. I trust you had an amazing birthday. Even at times when you've got your own struggles you do all you can to put a smile on people's faces, and for that I pray that your beautiful face never runs out of smiles and laughter. In a world filled with competition, bitterness and envy, you're graceful, you're supportive and you build up while others tear down. May God's grace never depart from you, may He always place you in the midst of people eager to support, favour and help you, may the cup from which you so generously give continue to overflow. And may He bless you with a man, truly deserving of you, one that would honour you as he would his mother, protect you as he would his sister, and love you as he would a cherished lover. Amen.
