My thankful post today is summed up in just one thing...Life.
I am thankful that I am alive!
In recent times, many young, promising and exceptionally wonderful people to know have died, most of them from diseases.
I compare these deceased with myself…..I do not measure up to most of them in many ways.
I do not live kinda perfectly life
I do not do as much as I should as regards living a healthy lifestyle
I have not achieved so much, not impacted so many, not met expectations of me
I take so many risks and do not take a lot of care in life as I should
I have over and over and over and over fallen short of God’s expectation of me….but
I am alive!
I still woke up this morning...doubtful…weak...
I still have those dreams that I am yet to figure out how they would become realities
I still hurt from the betrayal of people close to me; the seemly apathy of those I expect so much from
I still fear the outcome of the decision I’m about to make.
I still regret so much the stupid mistakes I’ve made in recent times
I still doubt and ask myself if I’m not over stretching and asking for too much…
I still worry and wonder if I would achieve some of my life goals,
I still worry that I’m not hitting the goals post as scheduled and planned…but I know
I still have time, I can still take a chance, I still have opportunities to take advantage of….because I am still alive!
God has chosen to keep me and
Today, I am grateful…
That I am here, standing, healthy, and hopeful;
That my body parts and organs respond to my commands and are functioning well
That my heart still beats in my chest and pumps all the blood my body needs.
That I am alive…..for these and many more…
I am thank-FULL
