Thank You

Today I pray...
...with gratitude.

I asked for encouragement...
...and later that I day I received this message from my friend Alana.

Did you know that God has already recorded every part of your life from the beginning to the end? He knows every disappointment, every loss, every challenge; and the good news is that your story ends in victory! God has written out a plan to bless and prosper you. Your final chapter concludes with you fulfilling your God-given destiny. Here’s the key: when you go through a disappointment, when you go through a loss, don’t stop on that page in your life. You’ve got to decide to keep moving forward. There’s another chapter in front of you, but you’ve got to be willing to take the next step.

Sometimes, we get so focused on what didn’t work out that we stay stuck, reliving the disappointment. If that’s you, recognize that you’ve been on that page long enough. It’s time to let it go and turn the page to the new chapter God has in store. You may not understand, it may not have been fair, but remember, the next chapter is full of blessing, full of favor, and full of victory! Make the decision to let go of the old so you can move forward into the abundant life God has in store for you!

I asked for the 'right words'...
...and a difficult conversation was uplifting and positive.

I asked that my family and friends be kept safe...
...and you gave us another glorious day.

I hoped for a good day...
...and a good friend reminded me that every day is abundant with blessings.

Today I pray with gratitude...
...thank you for answering my prayers.

Thank you for this day.
And thank you for the reminders that you are walking with me every step of the way.
