Sometimes you feel that your prayers aren’t answered.
That it takes a while for God to listen to your heart’s desire.
That you are not blessed and have nothing at all.
But then, you will realise that He heard your prayers just a few months back.
That maybe your prayers and heart’s desires have a perfect timing that’s why it is taking a while.
That even if you don’t have a job and practically no money, there are a handful of people that helps you survive. They feed you and lend you money. They genuinely care for you.
I may ask for a lot in my prayers now.
I may whine every now and then about my life.
I may be impatient sometimes.
But I am still thankful everyday.
I am thankful for the parents God gave me.
The opportunity to be where I am now.
For my cousins that let me leech on them for sometime now.
The possibility of a better future.
Everyday I am thankful.
For my life.
For the sun.
The cold breeze.
The sumptuous food.
The comfortable bed.
The comfy shoes.
Genuine hearts of people around me.
Today I am grateful.
For my faith is still intact.
For the opportunity to praise and serve God.
For the many blessings He gave me.
I am grateful. I am thankful.
