November 30th, turned on my laptop and thought to be ahead and put down the post for the week so it will be ready to go online. In my head I thought I had something already, but I could not write anything….

December 1st 2015, I woke up, said my prayers, did some house chores and replied some emails, mistakenly opened up an email between myself and KLM, and was upset looking at how much I was charged to change my ticket £350…I was so upset. Closed my laptop and went to make breakfast, then I remembered I promised myself not to get upset over it again…lol. While having breakfast i was watching Criminal Minds, then i remembered again I need to write.

This might sound funny, but sometimes when i am stock I say a prayer and sleep, hoping God will speak to me…does anyone else perform this routine?

So I slept and woke up and all I could feel was “Thankfulness”. Having the life I do, I don’t have much but God has blessed me with what I have and I have to be thankful for it daily. I am on a long holiday, not everyone gets to go on a holiday, there are some people who have never been on a holiday.

But most importantly I am thankful that I am able to starve my fear and do the things I want to do. I know 2016 will be a great year for me. I am starting from were I am, with what I have. If I am going to use my mouth for something, it might as well be something that will benefit me and everyone around me. Giving thanks alone will release God’s power in my life.

As we are getting close to the end of the year, I hope you can just look back at everything you have been through, good or bad and be thankful for it. Because with all the experience, circumstances, obstacle you have faced, it brought you this far, you are still standing. As much as we want to question God about everything, use your mouth and just give Thanks.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”
