Thank you God

if i could choose i’d rather not live the past week. I was down emotionally. I can’t explain how and why, but the last week was also one of my best since the beginning of the year. I lost my Job, i am homeless*, i still struggle financially and that’s not everything. Having nothing reminded me i was  blessed having all these things, and i am still bless with what i call nothing. In the midst of it God reminded me to thank him for everything he does.

I came to realize that everything that happens to us, happens out of a prayer, something that we asked or wished for.

As Human being we always complain whether we have everything or nothing. Today i just want you to think of it, stop complaining, start thanking. I’m in the process of learning how to give thanks for every little thing.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

This verse reminds me of something powerful, if i keep my eyes on my problems i will end up worrying and be unhappy but if i submit everything to God, i am able to live life happily despite my shortcomings.

I may not be where i want,

i may have some things to deal with

And with God on my side

Being happy is not a mask i wear, it is who i am

*) meaning i don’t have a place i will call mine but for God’s sake, i have a bed and everything that goes with it.
