So it’s day 1.
I’m so excited can you tell? Ok so this means it’s also exactly 40 days to 40 for me
Okay so hopefully I actually dance better than this 😂😂.
So today we are literally walking through the blogging gates and I’m starting my #40RandomThings with what the Bible recommends.
Yep! Thanksgiving. ‘Cos apparently that’s the password.
And really I’m very thankful for a lot of things. So it would really be a good place to start.
1. My Husband
My friend, my pastor,
my confidante, gist partner,
counselor, coach, biggest cheerleader, my prophet,
my baby daddy, my sugar daddy.
Many years ago God told me “your money and ministry is tied to the man you marry”. I didn’t fully understand it but today… all I can say is I’m grateful.
2. My Miracle Babies
It took me a while to be a mum but you were all definitely worth the wait! Every prayer, every tear, every confession, every fight of faith was worth it. I’m thankful for my ‘Dassah,
All three very different
but all such a huge blessing in my life. I’m also grateful for Hannah’s Heart the ministry born out of this victory over infertility.
I’m so thankful for my family. That even though I don’t see them all the time, my family is very close knit. When the chips are down my brothers and sisters look out for me. They are there and have my back. I wish we had a recent family picture. I’m not sure I can find any but the biggest picture is in my heart. I’m also thankful for family not related by blood but connected by covenant.
4. My DCC family
Marriage brought me into this family. It was a scary and sometimes overwhelming journey but David’s Christian Centre has been good to me. It has molded my life in ways I cannot explain. I’m truly grateful for every moment, every challenge, every victory. I’m grateful for the amazing people I have met and become family with. I’m thankful for my armor bearers, my helpers, my ladder holders, for those who call me PM and those who call me Mama. I’m thankful for all the ministries born out of my service at DCC. I’m grateful that God chose to send me here. My life is so much better for it.
Friends turned family. New friends. Old friends. People I can call when I need something and not feel like I’m bothering them. This year I made quite some new friends and beautiful relationships. I’m grateful that I’m not alone. I’m grateful especially for people that I may not see in ages but once we do see it’s like the remote control pause button has been de-activated and we just simply continue as if we never stopped. I’m grateful for low maintenance friendships and for those who never give up on me even when I’m not exactly being the most “competent” friend.
I’m thankful that I discovered purpose early. That I didn’t stumble around too long before knowing what God would have me do with my life. Knowing what I was born to do and following that path has helped me streamline my life. People live a whole lifetime and never get to the point where they know they are walking in the path laid out for them and here I am …
God knows I’m grateful for that
Yeah I know it seems like a weird thing to be thankful for but I’m really thankful for worship. As in really really thankful. This is the one that has gotten me through every difficult situation in my life. Every single one. Being able to connect to heaven for strength, wisdom, courage and grace. Being able to see God exalted above everything in my life.
Seeing God firmly enthroned in my life as Lord over ALL.
I’m thankful that I can get on my knees
and cry out “JESUS” and all of heaven will answer.
For that I’m very grateful. Very very grateful.
The truth is this list is far from exhaustive but I guess it’s a good place to start. The next few days will be so much fun. Like I said watch out for the give aways and what you have to do to get them.
Okay people gotta run.
