Dear single lady,
I was sitting at the store where I sell my small corper business on thursday when this letter just nudged at my heart – calling to me that yeah, it’s time to do some gratitude to God again like we did in this post.
You see, my life right now is as simple as simple can be – basically at the basics/foundation stage.
Let me explain…
I am currently a youth corper.
I wake up in the morning, have an awesome time with God, exercise and go to work.
I come back from work, go and join the woman at the store to sell my goods and when it’s late, I go back home to my one room home – yes, the kind of a pilgrim house a corper like me lives in.
As I sat at the store to sell eggs (yes, that’s what I sell), I couldn’t help but be grateful to God.
I mean, I am CONTENT with my life as much as content can get.
I was thinking about how when I sell some eggs I am grateful, when I don’t, even as I take the eggs back home, I praise God all the same.
My heart is all merry, not because of things I possess but because of God and God alone.
I saw a DP before writing this and it resounded so deeply in me. I look back on my life in the years past and I look at me now and babesssss, I see God!
I am not all up there in wealth or something right now…
I am single and don’t have any man…
So no one can say that the reason why I am so content is because of external factors.
The reason why I am content with my life – however bare and little it may seem to be right now is because of God – I have got Him in me and He has surpassed my expectations in the years gone by.
When my second book comes out, I believe then some of you will understand why I get overwhelmed when I talk about God because I shared some things there – some things that bowl me over in tears when I think about the fact that God just lovessss me!
Who even gave me the words that I am writing to you right now?
Who lifted this little girl and gave her a platform – a blog that people say blesses their lives?
Who set my feet on the rock and turned the mess I wanted to hide into a message?
Like, why would You turn things that I cried about into a cause for joy now?
No man did that for me. It’s all God.
And so when I say I love my life, I don’t mean I love my life because of external factors… I mean that this life of purpose – of thanksgiving – of joy – of praise – of peace – of contentment that God has given me… I love it.
And I think that we all have to come to the point where we praise God for the life He has given us right now rather than longing for more.
There’s no more out there that you can have that will make you happy.
If having God in your life right now can’t make you joyful, then guess what? Nothing else will.
I know that this letter resounds so much with my letter – dear single lady, are you satisfied in Jesus(read it if you haven’t yet) and that’s true.
Can you sincerely look at where you are right now and thank God for it?
Can you cast your mind back to that crappy job you have to be at on monday but still say that, Lord I love all you are doing in my life still?
Trials, issues, problems… they maybe there right now but still Lord, I love this life that I have in you.
Today, I just want to encourage us all to just say a prayer of thanksgiving like I did while I sat at the store on thursday.
I like to smile when I thank God and you just might like to do that too – try it 🙂
Say: “Father I thank you for the life that you have given me right now. It may not be up to standard with the world but it’s up to standard with you. My heart may want so many other things but I know you care for me and don’t discount my needs. So right now, right this minute, all I want to say is thank you Lord.
Thank you for loving me.
Thank you for being in me.
Thank you for this life you have given to me.
Yes, I am grateful Lord.”
Keep living in praise to God.
Don’t let circumstances take your praises to God out of your mouth.
He sees you.
He knows you.
And He never misses a thing.
Rest in that assurance.
Till our next love letter,
