The secret is, if only we can see from our tribulation what God has prepared for those that trust in him. The next time life get worse, look at this few blessing and give thanks to God.
GIVE THANKS TO LIFE/WITH “GOD” (LIFE) ALL IS POSSIBLE
I came across something in the bible that says give thanks to all ye on the earth. This thought came in when I was homeless some years ago on a sunny beach where all hope was gone excerpt the lord.
My cousin asked me that faithful day to join her home but I refused because her mum sacked me from her house and none of them bothered to look for me or ask my whereabout in my absence.
At that very moment when she left, I only saw God and nothing else mattered to me than to give thanks and be grateful for life. I worshipped God like never before and the miracle came from heaven.
Two gentlemen in a red KIA Sorento approached and ask me to tell them my problem and they will help me and since that day, Homeless has never seen my shadow again.
Thank God for life in every situation and not only good times.
UNMERITED FAVOR THAT SELECTS YOU FROM THE ODDS
Life can be tough, job disappointment, relationship betrayal seems all hope is lost but when life gets this tough, we still use the same road our next-door neighbor used yesterday and never return.
You were allowed to enter the office without an appointment where others got rejected, it hard but still you don’t go to bed with an empty stomach. That unmerited favor beloved.
Few years on a job trip I nearly missed my flight and miss my favorite seat. With a sad face sat by this man and we started communicating on the flight and till today, this good man has been awesome to me. That when the favor you don’t deserve even still locate you when you least expected it.
Be grateful for a favor even when things get tough.
GOOD PEOPLE THAT HELPS YOU MAINTAIN GOOD MENTAL HEALTH.
It is estimated that out of the 21.6million people living in Ghana,650,000 are suffering from severe mental disorder and a further 2,166,00 are suffering from moderate to mild mental disorder, the treatment gap is 98% of the total population are expected to have a mental disorder according to WHO international.
Where do you fall in this disorder category? You are jobless but your best friend text you and assure you that your situation is just a face and will pass.
Welcome, how was work? My nephew and niece ask and right there I start to pour my stress out. A few minutes later am feeling better. Beloved to have someone to tap your shoulder in time of need is far more precious than money sometimes or all time.
Be grateful and cherish those friends and family members who check up on you daily. Not everyone gets such a blessing.
BE GRATEFUL FOR THE FREE GIFT OF NATURE
What you don’t like is someone’s prayer request,780 million people lack access to safe drinking water according to water.org.we complain of the 32 degrees heat in Africa while others in the western wish for 78 degrees.
Free sun for vitamin c, some purchase it, trees to give fresh air to breath. we want to eat but complain when it rains, beloved be grateful no matter the breakup, financial difficulty, or even on your sickbed.
BE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR FUTURE.
When I wake up in the morning, I say thank you lord because the devil is a liar, he might have controlled and messed up my past but thank God he only had my past and not my future because my future is orchestrated by God and not him.
God has a beautiful plan for you and only if you know, you would have been jumping everywhere thanking God for the great things he has plan for you.
The bible says, eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, neither has it entered into the heart of men what God is about to do.
