This has been an amazing week for me. I turned 50 on the 11th April and the celebration has been beyond my imagination. The 11th saw me celebrating Gods goodness in my life with friends and family, but the 10th of April saw me doing a list which I want to tell you about today.
I did a list on the of ‘50 things I am grateful for over the last 50 years.‘ It took me only 20 minutes to finish the list and you made the list!
I am grateful to God who made it possible for our paths to cross one way or the other. I have been writing these blogs for over 10 years and in that period youve been reading them and also sending me feedback and write ups of how you’ve applied what youve learnt or how the blog have helped you. I want to say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ for that.
Someone used to say to me ‘Who encourages the encourager?’ Now I am one of those people who believes that I do not need any encouragement to do the things God has asked me to do – but I realised that I get more inspired and encouraged every time you send me your testimonies and responses. A big thank you for being you and for reading and responding to my write ups.
At the top of my list is Salvation; I am extremely grateful that Jesus introduced Himself to me over 35 years ago and He has been revealing more and more of Himself to me every day since then unfailingly. How beautiful this has made my life. This is genuinely the singular most amazing game changer of my life and I couldn’t have planned how my life would has turned out if I hadn’t taken that decision of submitting to Him.
Jesus made all the difference and He still does in the lives of many people today, if we allow Him take charge and be in the driving seat of our lives.
The bible verse for today which is one of my anchor scripture is:
‘Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.’ Psalm 103:1-2
Also at the top of my list is my family. I am so grateful and thankful for the benefit of my family, I could never have asked for better; my church , Gateway Chapel; my christian journey to date and my future as planned by God.
Thank you so much for making the list and being part of my story. Do not cease to make Godly decisions and celebrate Gods faithfulness in your life. I genuinely appreciate YOU & always remember that whatever youre going through or have gone through….
God is on your side!
