I find myself feeling incredibly thankful for the last year and hopeful for what all of my recent blessings means for the future. To say that I have struggled over the years is an understatement but I wouldn’t trade those struggles for anything. I’ve been taught many things through them, including just how strong I am in overcoming the things that I needed to go through in order to get where I am now. For that reason, I’m also thankful for the struggles as well. It’s taken awhile but, I like the woman that I am and I wouldn’t be that person had it not been for both the good and the bad times.
This is my prayer which I’ve chosen to share here because: it may inspire a prayer of your own, it may eventually serve as a reminder to me to be thankful and to pray on it, and because it’s another part of the journey that I have promised to document.
I find myself sitting humbly at your feet, thanking you for all that you have done. I’m grateful that you called upon me to go on this journey and that I heard and accepted it. I know that you have a plan for me and I pray that I continue to follow where you lead. Thank you for your unwavering love and the blessings you’ve bestowed upon me past and present. Though it might not have been true then, I’m also grateful for the tests you have placed before me over the years. I know now that my moments of struggle were purposeful whether I know their purpose or not. I haven’t always recognized the good that comes of the hardships and I haven’t always remembered to turn to you in my moments of need but, I find comfort in knowing that you have a plan and a purpose. I pray that I always find that comfort and that I continue to have a heart of thanks, that I come to you more often to acknowledge all that you have done for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
Note: I haven’t truly introduced myself, nor have I shared my story. I know that it’s necessary but I’m stuck on deciding what to share and what not to share, whether to share it over multiple posts or share it in a single post, and on how to word it all together. Once I’ve figured that out, I’ll be sure to post what I feel needs to be shared.
