I WILL Be Grateful!

God is teaching me to stop being selfish and I’m proving too stubborn to learn. But in time, my restless and loss of peace has pushed me to pay attention to the lessons.
I spend way too much time thinking about what I want and what I don’t have and where I need to be. It drains my energy and it steals my joy. I become anxious and I stop being grateful.
Paying so much attention to what you don’t have blinds you from seeing and appreciating what you already have. Focusing on the people that have left you will stop you from properly loving and paying attention to the people who stayed.
FOLA, when was the last time you were really grateful for all God has done? You are saved, blessed with spiritual gifts, empowered to be a blessing, you’re healthy, favored with a job and a roof over your head and more… 
Yet you pay more attention to what you think you don’t have. Have you considered that you don’t have it because you lack gratitude for what you do have? ” says Father God
So I retrace my steps. My season of gratitude starts today. No more despondency. No more silent cravings. No more anxiety for what may or may not happen. I will look outside myself and make my gifts and blessings available for others.
I am God’s blessed child. I will show gratitude by being a blessing.

  1. I am with you on this Sis Fola. You taught me Radio Presentation Skills. I still hope to have things to do with you, God willing.

  2. EITHER ONE IS BEING GRATEFUL THIS MOMENT OR ONE IS BEING A GREAT FOOL.
    GOD SHOULD BE THE MOST PAINED BEING WITH WHAT HUMANS CHOOSE TO DO TO ONE ANOTHER AND THEMSELVES. FREEWILL IS LIKE A LONG ROPE HE GIVES US. THAT’S OUR HUMANITY. AND WHAT DO WE MOSTLY DO WITH IT? WE USE IT TO HANG OURSELVES SPIRITUALLY. SO GOD ISN’T GET WHAT HE WISHED THAT WE DO. TALK OF FAILED PROJECT. BUT HEY, HE IS NOT GRUMPY. HE KEEPS GIVING AND HOPING. HE KNOWS HE MUST WIN AT LAST. LOVE HOPES ALL THINGS. SATAN IS CYNICAL. SATAN’S GOT NO RESURRECTION AND RESTORATION POWER. BUT GOD ISN’T GRUMPY. A FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS JOY. GOD KNOW AT HIS SCHEDULED TIME IN HIS MASTER PLAN, HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL. BEHOLD I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW. ALL OF US WHO KEEP HANGING OURSELVES SPIRITUALLY WILL BE RESURRECTED. RESURRECTION POWER IS ETERNAL. IT’S NEVER USED UP. ONLY ITS DEPLOYMENT IS TIMED. AND THE TIMING IS HIDDEN TO US. SO WE CAN WALK BY FAITH.
    WE NEVER STOP ASPIRING. YET WE REMAIN EVER GRATEFUL.IF NOT FOR WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE, CERTAINLY FOR WHAT THE LORD HAS PROMISED HE WILL DO. WE KNOW HE WILL. THEREFORE WE KEEP WORKING AND KEEP REJOICING IN THE PRESENT.
    THANKS TO THE GOD OF CREATION.
