Thank You Jesus For 421
The best way to ever wake up is saying and meaning the words “Thank You Jesus.” I went to bed in great pain and discomfort. I’m so grateful for every second of the 4 hours and 21 minutes God just allowed me to sleep. My body was very exhausted so it wasn’t the most sound medicated sleep. Nonetheless, it was sleep as I’m only awake due to moderate pain and to take my 6am meds.
Fortunately, I’m not waking up with a frown on my face. Sometimes God has to allow us to experience the worse days so we can learn to be grateful for the better days. That’s exactly where I am right now. Overjoyed that God would allow me another breath, some relief, and some sleep. Not to mention I woke up beside one of the most beautiful, unofficial nurses on the planet. My wife is always by my side for better or worse.
I’m reflecting on what I’ve been through and continue to face. I can see how much God has blessed me through these trials. God has increased my gratitude for the little things. God has developed my endurance in the midst of things. God has given me contentment no matter what life brings. God has strengthened my compassion and understanding towards others who are going through painful things. God has actually broadened my opportunity to testify to His ever present love, goodness, strength, and glory!
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
