I am THANKFUL for the unbelievable, the things they said were unachievable,
what many said was unreachable, give up the fight, it’s too feeble.
I am THANKFUL I chose to chase the dream, hold on to hope, and let my heart lead my steps;
Wasn’t sure where I was headed or how I would get there, but I held onto my faith because in His hands is where I have been kept.
I am THANKFUL that when I didn’t know how or even if it was possible,
I remembered my savior turned water into wine, fed 5000 with 2 fish and five loaves, rose from the dead just to prove nothing is impossible.
I am THANKFUL that not because I deserved it or not because of anything I had done,
I am a witness that when the race seems lost, victory still can be won.
I am THANKFUL that others look favorably on me and pour into my life,
And those that tried to tear me down and steal my joy, only became a part of my testimony as my dreams took flight.
I am THANKFUL that when I was ready to give up, quit, and walk away,
Something wouldn’t allow me, pushed me to continue, dig deeper, and reminded me that tomorrow would bring a brighter day.
I am THANKFUL that at my darkest times, when I thought all was lost,
I would recall that no matter what the price to find my way, He already paid the cost.
I am THANKFUL that I’ve learned that nothing beats serving others and being a beacon of light,
That my experiences were not just for me, but so that others could find their inner might.
I am so THANKFUL that the man I am today is the better than who I was before,
And who I’ll be tomorrow, I can’t imagine but the path I’m on, I’m ready to explore.
I am THANKFUL that this is just the beginning of my story,
And every time my fingers touch the keyboard or my voice is heard, I get another chance to proclaim God’s glory!
