Thankfulness

Published by admin at 11:02 pm under Uncategorized

Today was Thanksgiving. I’m single & all of my entended family are hundreds of miles away… so I accepted an invite from a friend to have dinner with their family. On this particular Thanksgiving, even if I had nothing else to be thankful for, this dinner experience made me extremely grateful that the family I met today wasn’t my family!

(Just kidding guys… kinda!)

But regardless, I do have a lot to be thankful for this year.

I don’t remember exactly how long it’s been since the last time I gave in to porn. The truth is, I spent so much time feeling guilty and ashamed of my past failures that I never stopped to celebrate the present victory. So this year, I’m especially thankful for that.

I’m extremely thankful to be in a church now where I can admit to a failure and not be ostracized… and where others feel comfortable sharing their failures with me. Because of this church, I’m growing in my relationship with God, finding healing… and just plain becoming a better person.

I’m thankful that even though they are hundreds of miles away, I have a family that loves me even when they don’t understand me.

I’m thankful that I can make a living doing things that I love, things that are interesting… and even things that help others.

But most of all, and trite as it might sound, I am very thankful to God for orchestrating all of this so that it came together at the perfect time and in the perfect place.
