Dear God

Need peace?

DEAR GOD:

I want to thank you for what you have already done. I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards; I am thanking you right now.
I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better;
I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until people say
they are sorry or until they stop talking about me;
I am thanking you
right now. I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears
I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until my
financial situation improves; I am going to thank you right now.
I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and the house is quiet;
I am going to thank you right now. I am not going to wait until I get
promoted at work or until I get the job;
I am going to thank you right now. I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief;
I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges
are removed;

I am thanking you right now.
I am thanking you because I am alive.
I am thanking you because I made it through the day’s difficulties.
I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.
I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do
more and do better.
I’m thanking you because FATHER, YOU haven’t given up on me.

GOD IS SO GOOD, AND HE’S GOOD ALL THE TIME!
IN ALL THINGS THANK HIM.

    Hi Sandra,

    I like your blogs very much. Usually I do not have words to write you something, because I am so amazed. I am writing for the first time right now, to thank you for all, for your blogs, for this wonderful prayer, which suits the situation I am just now. Thank you very much.
