I want to thank you God, I want to thank you God, I want to thank you God for all that you have done in my life, I want to thank you God. There was a time in my life when I felt everything everything was going the wrong way. My job was not fulfilling me or satisfying me, my home life was in turmoil and my entire psyche about myself was that I wasn’t going to be anything more than what I was seeing at that moment in the mirror. But then God something happened, something illuminated me, something transformed me, something made me realize that what I was seeing in the mirror. The person that I was looking at in my reflection, the person that was looking back at me had a long way to go and that person had a long successful graceful life to be a part of and that person is now the new me.
When I tell my story to individuals I don’t tell my story that I had been molested or that I had been living in poverty or that I had to overcome an addiction because that was not my story. But my story was that I had to overcome something even just as distraught as that I had to overcome the feeling that I wasn’t good enough, the feeling that I wasn’t talented enough, the feeling that I wasn’t worthy enough to be given all this love that I am now receiving from the Heavenly Spirit that is what I had to overcome. And when I looked at that reflection of a person who has been changed by the words and love of God, I saw the most amazing reflection reflected back to me.
Sometimes it is not others that cause us our turmoil most; no, most of the time it is ourselves. Because we don’t believe that we are even capable of being all that God has seen and sees us to be. We don’t believe, we don’t believe the foretelling of our future that God has something planned for us and our destiny is even more grand than we had ever imagined. But what we will believe, we’ll believe what others say about us, we’ll believe what others feel about us; and we’ll believe what others claim to fame about us. But we won’t believe what God has for us, so I have to say to you today as I look at myself in the mirror today, as I look at the amazing child of God’s that I am today, I say it is only because of the grace of God that I see myself for who I truly am.
It is only because of the grace of God that I see myself as the magnificent expression of God’s that I am. It is only because of my faith; the spirituality that I breathe in my lungs every day that shares with me that I am more than I had ever dreamed I could be, I am more than God even said I would be. I am God’s expression on this Earth, yes; and I thank you my Heavenly Father for bringing to my reflection an amazing sight of you. I thank you my Heavenly Father for telling me that: “yes even when times are hard you are my child and you will still be blessed. I will give you everything you need; I will provide for you everything you need. And I will always be there for you, I will always be there for you and I will always love you because you are my child.”
I will remember those words for the rest of my life. When times look hard to me I rely on my faith. When troubles are brewing I look to my God and I say thank you God and my brother Jesus Christ for giving me all that I need to be all that I can be. So when your day begins on a sour note, know that the best lemonade you can ever make is out of those sour lemons. Know that the best day you can ever have is the day when you triumph over tribulations, know that God is there for you at all times. He asks that you just open up your eyes, open up your heart, and extend your ears to hear His still quiet voice. God will take you through it; God will bring you through it to the other side. God will provide for you what you have wanted all your life. I thank you my Father for bringing out of me what I had problems of bringing out of myself, I thank you my Father for showing me that I Am, I Am, I Am, I Am, and so it is. Amen and amen, thank you my Father.
