I was journaling this morning and I wrote out all the things I was grateful for. I try to maintain a heart full of gratitude regularly, so it wasn’t like today was extra special or that I was necessarily moved or prompted in any way.
However, I did want to write it all out because I truly am grateful.
New memories have been created recently and I have been journaling every single emotion that presents itself. It is like new chapters being written in the story that is being written. Deep down, I am sentimental. I value and cherish memories. I have journals for this very reason.
To write out every thought. Every emotion. Every single memory. Every prayer.
So that when I look back through those pages, I can see where God moved. What he granted. What he removed.
I can see how he transformed me and my heart.
So while I was journaling all that I was grateful for, I then flipped all the way back to this time last year and read over where I was emotionally at that time. I had no idea that in just a few short weeks, everything would change.
And for that, I am so thankful. I am thankful I didn’t know back then. I am loving where God has directed me now.
I would love to hear what you are thankful for currently!
