An Attitude of Gratitude

Abba Father,

Thank you for challenges and risks

Thank you for stories used to encourage and reflect your glory

Thank you for passions to pursue

Thank you for the Holy Spirit’s heart beat in my chest

Thank you for bringing my prayers into the light

Thank you for spontaneous and grounded worship

Thank you for getting in the way when I step out in the wrong direction

Thank you for unearned abundance

Thank you for being an ever present and living God

Thank you for intimacy and depth

Thank you for your presence in nature

Thank you for making me a vessel of your sweet whispers

Thank you for incomprehensible love

Thank you for the pure refreshment found in abiding and resting

Thank you for real and raw community

Thank you for bearing fruit from faith as small as a mustard seed

Thank you for always showing up

Thank you for the slight discomfort on earth and hunger for a heavenly home

Thank you for new mornings that bring new promises

Thank you for walls that come crashing down

Thank you for every beautiful brother and sister

Thank you for turning weakness into strength

Thank you for rapid growth

Thank you for the intentionality of your plan for each life you love so dearly

Thank you for speaking so boldly and clearly even when you are cut off and ignored

Thank you for smiles

Thank you for laughs

Thank you for tears

Thank you for the highs and lows

Thank you for each purposeful moment 

Thank you for the beautiful journey

Love,

A tethered heart
