“E lo ni mo san fun oba ogo, elo ni Jesu mi gba? E lo ni mo san fun oba ogo, fun ore re lori mi?”
(Thanks to Adetoro for the lyrics)
“How much can/will I give to God for ALL He has done for me? How much will be enough?”
My heart is full of gratitude to God, my creator and the Giver of Life. I have made a decision to be grateful for each day He gives me, to be grateful for the breath of Life in my nostrils, to be thankful for where I am right now and not be resentful of where I thought I should have been by now.
I heard of a flat that got burnt in my friend’s estate. The occupants had gone to church on the first Sunday of the year only to come home to no home. I can imagine their pain and the feeling of loss. I ask myself how they are supposed to be grateful to God this year and I try to put myself in their shoes – will I still maintain a heart of gratitude in such circumstances?
Still, I am grateful for life…
For my siblings – that amazing bunch of people who are forever there for me, for my darling Adams who shows me unconditional love, who teaches me the way of the Lord, who bears with all my skoin skoins. I love you and I am always thankful to God that our paths crossed the way it did.
I am grateful for my wonderfully beautiful friends who have stood with me and by me through the years – always encouraging, giving and trusting. I am so grateful for you and I love you.
For the friends I have garnered via social media, I am grateful for your friendship through the ‘wires’ and ‘wireless’.
This year, I want to give – my time, (some) of my money :D, my expertise and anything He tells me to give. To whom much is given, much is expected. I have been given much and now is the time to impart and give back.
I want to be an answer to prayer(s), I want God to use me to answer someone’s prayers.
This I pray… Amen.
I wish you a year where nothing will be impossible… may your cars run on water 😀
Have an amazing year ahead!
