#ThankfulThursday #TestimonyThursday

It’s another Thursday, and my internal alarm had beeped twice or so in the course of the day reminding me that I hadn’t written anything to post today. My emotions have been a roller coaster in the last couple of weeks and I realized it’s easy to overlook God’s faithfulness so many times and begin to question if there is indeed anything to be thankful for. But trust me, there are! Tonnes of things in fact. 

So, today, I’m thankful for the lesson that this experience has brought me. I must be intentional about thanksgiving. To be honest, that was part of why I started this series a while back. It was a conscious effort to be intentional in my gratitude to God for EVERYTHING! Big, small, in between. 

I’m also thankful for the leading of the Holy Spirit. I attended a number of sessions of the 2016 Camp Meeting of Kisses and Hugs Club, a ministry for singles and married led by Pastors Dunamis and Sophia Okunowo last weekend. It literarily set my spirit man on fire!!! I had such a busy weekend and a lot on my plate and it was a huge sacrifice to create the time to attend but I am glad, in fact overjoyed, that I obeyed and went. I met God! Chai! I experienced God! Words in season came forth. Lots of testimonies too. I’ll urge you to get the CDs of the Camp Meeting when they’re out and listen. The messages were FIRE!!!

I thank God for the wonderful people he has placed around me. My biological family and of course my spiritual family. I’m thankful for the pillars of strength God has sent to me. People. We need people. I thank God for the people he has placed in my life. 

What are you thankful for? Pray, share!

P.S. If you haven’t heard Onise Iyanu by Nathaniel Bassey, please get it. We serve a God of awesome wonders that creation adores. You don’t want stones praising Him in your place!

It’s exactly 58 days to the end of 2016!!! Happy new month! I can almost smell Christmas. Lol. I’m thankful today for the gift of life, sound health and sound mind. 2016 has been an eventful year. I’m thankful for where I am and definitely excited about what God has in store for the rest of the year.  

It’s just 3 days into the new month and I have testimonies already! I got surprise gifts from two people. God used them to meet me at the exact point of my need! I was just blown away about how detailed God is in dealing with us. 

I’m thankful for God’s word! Don’t know about you but when I stumble on a scripture and it speaks to my immediate situation, there’s just this unexplainable joy that comes with it. I have quite a lot on my plate this month and it got me worried at some point. In the course of the week, someone in a Christian ladies group I belong to mentioned this scripture and GBAM! I’ve been stewing on it everyday and telling it to myself. 

I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.””

‭‭John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭MSG‬‬

I’m grateful for good music! I love music a whole lot and I make an extra effort to streamline what I listen to.  I recently found a Bethel Music album on my phone –  Be Lifted High. Listening to this album has been a tremendous blessing. It’s been on repeat almost everywhere I go now. 

Lastly today, I give God thanks for my brother, Demilade. He is moving from corper to gold tomorrow. It’s been one year of serving the fatherland. I thank God for the opportunities and experience he has gained in the past year. It’s the start of something great for him, surely as The Lord lives!

What are you thankful for? Pray, share!
