My Thank You God List for Today

I am grateful for:

God's gift of life and love, family and friends, good cheer, joy and happiness.

The gift of another beautiful day added to my life.

The gift of healing, enlightenment and peace of mind... plus a good night's sleep.

God's instruments constantly working in my life--bringing hope, strengthening faith and spreading love to me and through me.

The opportunity to learn new things, gain new insights, practice what I've learned and learn how to redirect my actions in service of God's ministry.

The gifts of the Holy Spirit and the wisdom to use them for service. This is a constantly evolving process so I'm curious, nervous yet excited at the same time. It's such a great feeling knowing that little by little God's plans for me are being revealed. Lord, as I continue to pray for guidance, wisdom, enlightenment and discernment, through the power of the Holy Spirit, please continue to mold me and use me in service of your ministry. I pray for healing for my family and others who need it most. Please touch and heal us Lord, this I ask in Jesus' name. Amen.

My "Thank You God" List for Tuesday, 1/5/10

After yesterday's slump, today is such a wonderful (and welcome) surprise! So many opportunities have come up and I'm on a natural high. Yep, it's that time of the day again. Time to thank God for all the blessings he has showered upon me. :)

I am grateful for:

1. The gift of life, love, family and friends. I am especially thankful for God's never-ending guidance, which has led me to new doors that He has opened for me. I love my life! :)

2. New opportunities and second chances. Truly, I am amazed at God's boundless love for us. I know some people may get tired of hearing this but everyday is a new beginning for me. Yesterday I was so down cuz I had to turn down a job offer from a very close friend. It was heart-wrenching for me to say no because aside from the fact that I am such a people-pleaser, this was kinda my fault cuz I wasn't up front about my hesitation over the long hours. I felt really bad and it was such an unexpected downturn that I was really so melodramatic about it. Long story short, I woke up to a welcome call from a former employer asking me if I was interested in taking on a new client. Praise the Lord for such fantastic news! :)

3. Tonight's get-together with my oldest friends from grade school, my closest friends, my berkz, my peepz... well, you get the picture. Round two this time! Wheee! Can't wait! Updates and pix tomorrow. Mere words cannot express how much I love these peepz. I'm amazed cuz they've stayed with me through thick and thin, for better and for worse, in sickness and in health... and we're not even married. lolz. Thank you, Lord for giving me such wonderful friends. May we continue to be blessed with many years of good health, good cheer and clean fun. Wait, the last part may be stretching it. Fortune na lang akong iilis peepz ha? :)

And so that caps my list for the day. I'm keeping it to 3 for now, just to keep things interesting cuz I tend to ramble. lolz. Cheers everyone! God bless you all! :)

My "Thank You God" List for Saturday, 1/2/10

Now that 2010 is officially underway, I've got so much to be thankful for that I simply don't have enough time to write everything down. So from now on, I'll limit them to 3 things.

I am grateful for:

1. The gift of life. New year, new life. Lots to be excited about.

2. The chance to go back to a former employer (or two, God willing). I won't say which one(s), since everything's still up in the air. Needless to say, I'm gonna have to make the tough decision -- office or home-based work. Tough decision, cuz I like working at home but I also miss working in an office environment. I am grateful for every opportunity that God has sent my way but heaven help me, making this choice is going to be sooo difficult. Wish me luck?

3. The gift of forgiveness and second chances. This one's a no-brainer. I know how tough it is for us to forgive each other for offenses real and imaginary. One thing that amazes me though, is God's boundless love for all of His creation. I'm amazed that He finds it so easy to forgive us, no matter how many times we have sinned. I am both humbled and awed by His patience and unwavering faith in all of us. I mean, it's a bit ironic that in spite of our lack of faith, sometimes, God never lets go of us.

And so, I will end today's list with a short prayer. Thank you, Lord, for loving us unconditionally and for making the ultimate sacrifice. I pray that this year would bring us love, peace, joy, hope, and faith. I pray that the gifts of reconciliation, kindness and gentleness will rule in our hearts. I pray that broken relationships will be healed and that love will reign all over the world, as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. May the gifts of the Holy Spirit remain in our hearts. This I ask in Jesus' name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
