I am thankful for all that I have and all that I have yet to receive. I am thankful for the love of a good man. I am thankful for my family that loves me unconditionally. I am thankful for a brain that’s always thinking and hands that are always tinkering. I am thankful for a heart that is too sensitive and a spirit that is too present. I am thankful for everything I’ve had and more thankful for everything that I have lost. I am thankful that I can write. I am thankful that I can live without fear. I am thankful for all these things my Lord has provided me, even when I didn’t deserve it. Even when I wasn’t brave. Even when I got angry at him. Even when I was self-involved.
I realize now that faith means being brave. If you’re coming up against a wall because you’re taking the safe route maybe God just wants you to do something different. To trust him and that he’s going to help you achieve that dream you’ve got inside of you.
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
