At the tail end of December 2019, I was on a call with my friend Lyz. We talked about life and challenges. I said to her, “God has been so good to me. There is nothing more I could’ve asked for from the Lord.”
I was at peace with where I was at that point. I had no complaints, no worries, no doubts, no fears, no anger, no regrets. My heart was settled, my mind free.
See, when you’ve been in a place where you asked if your career would ever take off, if you’d ever be a somebody, if the meadow on your end of the river would ever sparkle, then you start seeing rays of hope and look at the strides you’ve made, you’ll be thankful. That’s me.
When you’ve had doors slammed in your face, been handed many no’s, the rejection flag waving above your head uncountable times and you finally get a yes – a breakthrough, you don’t take it for granted.
When you move from the point of having no job and no source of income, to surviving on paycheck to paycheck and then getting to the point of being able to save something at the end of the day, you better be grateful. I am.
When you look back to some of the dreams you had, dreams of travelling, dreams of exploring new places and experiencing new things, and those actually come to pass, you’ve got to wear the gratitude crown.
I am grateful everyday.
