For Christmas my dad gave me a key with the words GRATEFUL on it. I need to be reminded of this word daily because I have so many things in my life to be GRATEFUL. This past semester I started ministry school and the Lord has truly humbled me that I should be thankful for the shoes on my feet. I often look left and right wanting more and I forget that there are so many others who have nothing. Shame on me.
I lost my mother when I was 10 - currently I am 20. So much pain was felt deep down. My heart was broken, but because of Jesus Christ I have hope and I can be GRATEFUL for everything in my life that he continues to articulate. After my mom died I ran from God. Trying to submerse the pain, but then I hit rock bottom and I finally met Jesus. Ever since then he continues to change me. I truly am living the blessed drowning in a pool of endless grace daily.
