Giving Thanks to the One Above

I'm all about giving credit where credit is due. Gratitude is everything. Our Heavenly Father deserves so much thankfulness for all that He's accomplished in my life and in this world.

"But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." - 1 Corinthians 15:57

I live a life of gratitude. My faith is unfailing in the Lord. He has put me through many trials in life, but I don't mind.

Not really. Maybe I did at the time. I haven't lived a perfect life, but I don't think anyone can claim that prize.

I've made choices I know now, probably weren't the right ones, but they're done and over. It got me to where I am today, and for that I am grateful.

I live a life of victory because I do what I love. I write for a living. It can't get better than that for me. You may be doing what you love and isn't that wonderful?

I have so many blessings I've lost count. Can you say that about your life? Do you have so many blessings you've lost count?

Life is all about choices. I choose to live a faithful life filled with God's love. How do you chose to live your life?

I may have Bipolar Disorder. I may have Fibromyalgia. I may have Narcolepsy. I may have low back issues and arthritis and thyroid disorders and so many other things I have to keep a list otherwise I'd forget and I wouldn't be able to complete those forms at the doctor's office. But, none of it really matters. It's how I cope with what I have that counts.

I cope with God's help.

I read His word daily. It guides me and keeps me on the path of righteousness. I pray continually. I have an ongoing conversation with our Lord and Savior. Why? Because I know that He loves me and watches over me.

When was the last time you talked to God? When was the last time you gave thanks?
