I am happy and grateful that i woke up to see this beautiful day, had a sound sleep yesterday night,and woke up healthy and fine. I am also grateful that i have learnt to be grateful for everything that happens in my life, both good and bad.
According to Remi Banjo, author of Continuous Gratitude and praise; Gratitude means thankfulness,counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures and acknowledging everything that you receive”.
If a fellow isn’t thankful for what he’s got, he isn’t likely to be thankful for what he’s going to get. Sad, right? I believe that to be happy, i have to be thankful and learn to count my blessings. When going through tough times, counting your blessings enables you to be hopeful and resilient.
It is wise to say a gratitude prayer to God everyday . Here’s an excerpt of a Gratitude declaration from Remi Banjos Continuous Gratitude and Praise.
Dear Lord, thank you for yet another day to express my gratitude to you. Thank you for keeping me and my loved ones safe from all harm and hiding us under the shadow of your wings; under the umbrella of your grace and within the shelter of your love. You indeed are a faithful Father who looks after his own children, with so much love and kindness that nothing compares to it .
Teach me Holy Spirit to permanently dwell under your watchful eyes, even in the midst of the chaos in the world around me. When i abide under your shadows i know that i will be okay.
Thank you also for my friends and colleagues who you have kept safe, in doing so, you have saved me from Grief and pain. I appreciate you Lord and thank you for all these today in Jesus name. Amen.
Choose to thank God for everything in your life. Thank your friends,neighbours, colleagues,’ good Samaritans’ and everyone you meet for any simple gesture of kindness they show to you.
