I Am Thankful

Thankful

I am thankful for when you manipulated me from being myself for it taught me how to remain staying true and authentic.
I am thankful for you dimming my light for it showed me how bright it really was.
I am thankful for when you overlooked me for it taught me about peace and how to trust God’s timing.
I am thankful for accusations and mistreatment for it created within me humility and taught me how God’s grace is sufficient.
I am thankful for your degrading words for it taught me how valuable it is to lift up others.
I am thankful for when I believed your lies for it revealed God’s truth.
I am thankful for my plans being wrecked for it taught me obedience and how God’s plans are better.
I am thankful for that covered up molestation from childhood, for I would have never learned how a heavy heart, anger, fear, bitterness or being ashamed felt.
You taught me about God’s healing.
You taught me to find my voice.
You, you taught me how to forgive the unforgivable.

I am thankful for the pain for I would have never gained wisdom or empathy.
I am thankful for all the tears for I would have never known how to overcome a sleepless night.
I am thankful for the tough times for I would have never gained strength or hope.
I am thankful for the silent seasons for I would have never gained God’s vision.
I am thankful for darkness for I would have never been drawn to the light.
I am thankful for confusion and depression for I would have never known the power of prayer.

I am thankful for the stranger who smiled, not knowing my soul was suffering.
I am thankful for the random “you’ve been on my heart” text, for you showed me God’s angels in disguise during a time of doubt.

I am thankful for when I tried to fit in, for it gave me a deep revelation about how God created me to be set apart.
I am thankful for mistakes and disappointments, for it keeps me learning and becoming.
I am thankful for the world’s “no” for it allowed God’s “yes.”
I am thankful for brokenness for it made me a warrior.

No matter what happens, there is always something to be genuinely thankful for. We can be bitterly broken or gracefully broken. Jesus Christ’s love dwells within us. You’re an overcomer.

I am thankful for thankfulness.
I am thankful for you.
