Oh goodness I am so incredibly thankful, but not near as much as I should be.
I am so thankful for the people You have brought into my life, and thankful for the people You have removed.
I didn’t understand why you brought certain people into my life, but now I see why. I see You needed me to endure different types of people to better myself. I see You needed me to realize the difference between the people I want and the people I need. I understand why You removed some people out of my life because there were/are better people for me coming into my life. I understand You saw them serve their purpose in my life and felt it was time to go. And I am so thankful I am capable to understand and see this. I am so thankful for the people who You chose to stay in my life, I couldn’t ask for more supportive people.
I am so thankful for the great memories You have given me, and the not so great memories.
I didn’t understand why You would put me through such tough times in my life, but now I see why. I see You needed me to grow and mature as a person. I see You needed me to appreciate the greater memories just a little more. I see You needed to test my faith for it to become stronger, and for our relationship to become stronger. And I am so thankful I am capable to understand and see this. I am so thankful for the memories I look back on and see You.
I am so thankful for Your forgiveness.
I am a horrible horrible horrible sinner. I lie, I am ungrateful, I am selfish, I am not humble, I am not content, I am not patient at all, and sometimes I doubt You. You forgive me though. You take this horrible sinner, and you make me beautiful and holy. You invite me with arms wide open, and still never fail me. You still love me. I know how hard it is to love someones that is constantly failing You, and I admire Your strength to forgive me. It amazes me. God, I am so thankful for You.
Thank You for giving me so many opportunities to better myself.
Thank You for giving me so many opportunities to follow You.
Thank You for letting me play the sport I love.
Thank You for letting me tell Your story.
Thank You for giving me people who share their love for You with me.
Thank You for giving me people who test my character.
Thank You for living through me.
God, I surrender all of me to You. Take my life in Your hands and make me satisfied with everything I have and don’t have. Let me see Your Grace in each of my mistakes. Give me Your strength to forgive people, and have compassion for those who do not have compassion for me. Let me see the world how You see it. Let me love everyone more than I love myself.
THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME FROM MYSELF.
