Thank you Father God
It’s the sixth day of my personal blog challenge, to write a gratitude post for 21 consecutive days.
Did you know that the practice of gratitude can increase your levels of well-being? An interesting article on why gratitude is deemed to be important, can be found here.

C’mon – I challenge you!
I want to thank you today for the heroes and sheroes of this world (both past and present); influential men and women, who have helped to make this world a better place.
I’d firstly like to say “thank you” for sending Jesus to this earth, to represent you and reconcile us (the lost) to yourself.
He is the epitome of all that is good and noble and virtuous and demonstrated total commitment to your Word and your will.
I also want to thank you for the likes of Mother Teresa, Emmeline Pankhurst, Martin Luther King Jnr, John Newton, Maya Angelou and Nelson Mandela.
Thank you for the examples they are to us of radical transformation, passionate pursuit of dreams or ideals, and an uncompromising stand for equality and justice.
Finally, I wish to thank you for my own precious mother, for her example to me as a loyal church member, active worker in the Body of Christ and diligent prayer warrior. Thank you for her life and example of love for, and faithful dedication to you.
Dear Father God, thank you for blessing this world with such amazing personalities. I thank you for their inspirational lives and wonderful legacy.
Thank you Father God.

Beautiful!! I love how you’re doing this challenge! You’re pulling up some great topics for us to be thankful about.
On the 6th, I was thinking about how thankful I am for God’s plan. While it doesn’t feel so good sometimes and I’m definitely enduring what TD Jakes calls “the crushing”—this pruning season, I am so thankful that God sees my big picture and knows what He created me for fully. He knows how much investment I make into what I believe He tells me to do and knows my heart. I believe He is in charge and I’m thankful that despite my human brain, He doesn’t let me get in the way of myself but instead speaks and reminds me to wait on Him.

Once again thank you for your encouragement. I have enjoyed writing these.
Don’t envy you the crushing/pruning season. No doubt at the end of it you will be shaped exactly as he requires and it you will see that it has been worth the pain
