Gratitude for the Overlooked Things
I learned that I should be more clear when I speak of what I am grateful for, when speaking to my Father, in Heaven. Often times, I speed through prayer... always rushing off somewhere. But I learned that all it takes is three minutes for me to find and focus on something NEW to express gratitude for, each day.
Today, I chose my eyesight. I’m grateful to be able to gaze upon the faces of my loved ones, with out glasses. That, in itself, is a blessing... considering that most of my family wears them. Lol!
But yes, my senses are blessing—taste, sight, hearing, feeling/touching, hearing— these are ALL blessing that I, like most, have taken for granted. However, I am grateful to have come to this acknowledgment and that I have the space to speak it, meditate on it, and to thank God for it, with CLEAR THOUGHTS, and NOT hastily, for a change.
Thank You, Jehovah, for my sight, my hearing, my mind, my tastebuds, my ability to feel and touch things, and all the other natural functions of the body you’ve gifted to me. I will do a better job of taking care of it, so that my gratitude is not only from my lips, but also, from my actions. Thank You, Abba Father. 🙏🏾
