Gratitude

images

I thank God for hearing when I call.
I thank God for listening when I speak.
I thank God for answering the questions I ask, whether I like the answer or not.
I thank God for clarity in situations that onced troubled me.
I thank God for growth.
I thank God for giving me the wisdom to hear Him speak.
I thank God for the relationship that leads me to seek Him.
I thank God for showing me my faults, my flaws, and my wrongdoings.
I thank God for giving me a desire to be better.
I thank God for the epiphanies of life.

I’ve been struggling with sadness and grief and anger.
I asked God what I had done to deserve this negative situation.
I asked God what part I’d played in my own feelings of heartbreak.
He spoke to me, almost instantly, and answered those questions.
It wasn’t the answer I was expecting, but once I acknowledged it I realized He had tried to answer me before.
I ignored it.

Now I see, and now I understand.
That understanding has brought me peace.
That understanding has taught me a lesson.
That understanding has eased my heartache.

I thank God for peace.
I thank God for lessons learned.
I thank God for healing.
