Thank you Jesus. If not for you, there’d be no me. Because of you, I can be me.

I’ve loved. I’ve lost. I’ve gained. I’ve learned.

I laugh, I dream, I believe, and I live.

If you say it too much you might be seen as counterfeit. That’s ok. But to not say it at all? Risk it.

Thank you to my WP community and friends. Because of you, I can be me.

Have faith πŸ’š

  1. This is such a lovely post. You have inspired me to make the effort to be more thankful at the beginning and end of each day. I pray on my way to work, but it usually starts with an apology of some kind, or is mixed with feelings of guilt over one thing or another.

    God is good, and we must be thankful for Him and the beautiful world he has put around us.

    (As I said in my comment earlier, too!) I pray you go well into the rest of this week, my friend. 😊

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I’m so glad it inspired you. If I can just share one thing with you it would be this: I’ve learned a lot in the last few years of letting go of guilt. We trust God to save our lives and we wonder, “Does God really LIKE US?”, not just love us, but LIKE US? Would he want to hang around ME? The truth is yes. And so, by dropping the guilt and just praying, “God help me to be better than I was yesterday” (and of course asking forgiveness), you’ll start remembering how HUMAN you are my friend. When we let go of guilt we experience the true freedom God desires for us to have in HIM. Thank you always for your support! God bless you!
