Today I am Grateful
H. O. P. E.
Hope is keeping me alive.
And hope is the result of:
Faith..... My faith in God. I know it sounds canned. It sounds pat. This is not the answer that pulled me out of the gutter and depths of despair. For that I needed YOU.
But it was YOU who told me about God. You who told me of a power greater than myself that knew me, that knew of me, of my situation, of my needs. You said it would get better. You said God wanted greater things for me. You assured me this was so.
And then it was proven. I began to see it. I began to see the miracles. True miracles. Unexpected. Unexplained. Miracles. They began to happen. All. The. Time. Everywhere. Any place. Any time. My prayers began to be answered. Sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly. The ones that were answered immediately blew me away. I started to find the strength. I found excitement. I found faith. I found hope.
Oh hope. It's a wonderful thing. Without it we simply cannot go on.
Today, God is a power and a strength inside me. I do feel like Wonder Woman. And if I'm not Wonder Woman, then surely, she is my ally. She is my secret weapon. She is my strength. I turn to her when I need help. And she never fails. She shows up in ways that only I can see, that only I seem to really care about. No friends, I'm not on drugs! :) Altho I'm starting to sound a little bit like I am, aren't I?
So thank you. Thank you for reading Raising Peanut and traveling along this path with me. Thank you for checking in. Thank you for your comments (I love comments) :) .... Thank you for every single little thing you've done to carry me along.
I can honestly say, I am happy today.
