    Dear God
    I want to thank You for what you have already done.
    I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards
    I am going to thank you right now
    I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better
    I am going to thank you right now
    I am not going to wait until people cease talking about me
    I am going to thank you right now
    I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears
    I am going to thank you right now
    I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves
    I am thanking you right now.
    I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and the house is quiet
    I am thanking you right now.
    I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or until I get the job
    I am thanking you right now.
    I am not going to wait until I comprehend every twist and turn of my life
    I am thanking you right now
    I am not going to wait until my journey is smooth sailing without hardships
    I am thanking you right now.
    I am thanking you because I am yet alive and still in my right mind
    I am thanking you because I made it through yesterday's difficulties
    I am thanking you because I have overcome my past's obstacles.
    I am thanking you because I have been afforded another opportunity
    I am thanking you because FATHER, YOU haven't given up on me.
    And that alone is enough reason to take time to thank you right now
    Amen!

    This is too lovely. So often we wait to
    receive and then say thank never thinking
    about thanking just because or in anticipation
    of. AWESOME WRITE!!!!!!!!



    Much Luv
