God will give you joy in place of your sorrow, satisfaction in your place of loss, & provision in your areas of lack.

Gratitude Practice

  1. The little things that I take for granted like brushing my own teeth or showering without a home health aid, like SO many residents have at this facility.

Gratitude Practice

  1. I am grateful for the opportunity to grow closer in my walk with Christ and simultaneously grow in the MANY different relationships I have been given and cultivated. It was ALL a part of God’s plan!
  2. I am grateful my movie (Get Out) on DVD arrives tomorrow. (I got a notification from Amazon earlier tonight).
  3. I had a dispute with my bank (due to my selfishness). Anyway, I ordered Hulu for a free trial. Not only did they charge me prior to the ending trial date, but my bank account was overdrawn and I was hit with an NSF fee for $36.00 (ouch). Long story short, I contacted Hulu and they returned the charges rather effortlessly. My bank followed suit and not only was my account no longer negative, but my new debit card arrived yesterday.

Gratitude Practice

  1. Immersing myself in learning more and more about the character of God.
  2. The MANY connections I have gained in my walk with Christ.
  3. Even though don’t see it in the natural, by faith I see a cloud forming the size of a man’s hand. 🙌🙌

Thanksgiving Dinner

Yesterday, my mom’s nursing home facility had their annual Thanksgiving Dinner and I had quite the experience. I decided to exercise my abilities to see God all around since the Bible often says “I will never leave you or forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).

I observed several moments where I sat back and observed various moments of the presence of God. You do have to still your mind long enough to notice these “moments” though. I am fortunate enough to be able to sit back and observe them, but anyone can do it. I won’t ALWAYS have the opportunity to “sit back and observe”, but the opportunity is so very powerful, that I urge everyone to do it!!

In fact, challenge yourself and you’ll see! 😉

  1. Visiting with my mom today. We had her Thanksgiving dinner at her nursing home. She told a woman that sometimes she’s sweet and other times she’s not. Love her honesty. I definitely feel the exact same way!! We had such a great time! Thank you Lord for the opportunity to spend quality time with her…
  2. The roads were not slick despite the way it looked outside.
  3. Rediscovering a song on my Spotify playlist. (Ultimate Relationship) featuring Lalah Hathaway by Donald Lawrence. 🔥🔥🔥

Gratitude Practice

  1. Being used by God in simple things.
  2. Offering a suggestion to my fellow Care Team member.
  3. Submitting to God, by which I was able to resist the devil and he did flee. (James 4:7)

Gratitude Practice

  1. Searching for a particular sermon I needed for guidance and I found it!
  2. Taking the time to focus on The holy spirit and his leading and guidance. For example, I inquired about a song on the radio that I liked . I paused and The Holy Spirit directed me to do some research on YouTube, listen to the familiar artist ‘ voice and I found it!! It’s now on one of my Spotify playlists.
