Two Cents Tuesday Challenge: “Grateful”

I know that when I pray, something wonderful happens. Not just to the person or persons for whom I’m praying, but also something wonderful happens to me. I’m grateful that I’m heard. ~ Maya Angelou ~

Hello friends (smile) I’m sharing some of my grateful thoughts for the Two-Cents Tuesday Challenge. I encourage you to share your grateful thoughts. (smile)

I’m grateful everyday that my Lord and Savior wakes me up and equips me, by faith, for the day. (smile) I’m grateful that He answers my prayers! (smile) I’mgrateful for every good thing in my life!

I’m grateful for the wisdom to understand that life will bring challenges and sometimes those challenges force me to continue to grow and mature in every area of life. (gritted teeth smile) Sometimes, it’s painful! Can I get a witness (wink and a smile)

I’m grateful that the spiritual fruit within me continues to grow and make me more spiritual. I’m grateful for His mercy and grace when I stumble. There are times, I stumble hard. (shock face)

I’m grateful for family and friends who encourage and hang with me when I’m overwhelmed or frustrated by things and stuff and/or X, Y, and Z. Thank you! God bless you big! (smile)

I’m grateful for disappointments because God loves and protects me and has something better. Thank you Lord. (smile)

I’m grateful for the courage to be me! I’m grateful that I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. (smile) Praise The Lord!

I’m grateful for times when God moves, in a mighty way, to let me know, He’s working and to keep the faith. (smile)

I’m grateful for His Word being deeply rooted within to speak to situations by faith and prayer.

I’m grateful for His presence in my life. When going through stuff, He walks me through and comforts me through my tears. I’m grateful that when it’s over, I’m stronger than before. Thank you Lord!

Finally, I’m grateful that I truly believe and trust Romans 8:28! (smile)

Have a blessed and grateful day, my friends! (smile) As always, your comments are welcome. (smile)

Thank you Ann!! I keep a gratitude or thanksgiving journal. i am not always as faithful as I would like…but I am thankful for the exercise in being grateful to the Lord. I recently heard a speaker who suggested to start the day with gratitude. I have always written in mine at the end of the day….I think I will be changing my time to begin my day with a focus on things above and not on the things of this earth…Col. 3:2.

Thank you again!! May the Lord bless you Dearest Friend!!
