Last year, I read a book that advised on keeping a Journal of Blessings. It’s simply a notepad where you write the great things God has done for you. As you can imagine, the benefits are great: reminiscing on the faithfulness of God, bringing to remembrance that since He has done it before then He can do it again, and so on. I decided to try it.
- January: He gave me the project topic I wanted even though I wasn’t the first to request for it. Favor.
- February: I got an internship with a company that taught my class the practical aspect of a course. Excellence.
- March: He healed me of a pain in my body. Healing.
- April: I flew on Virgin Atlantic for free. My card was never charged. I sent a mail to customer service. “We would be in touch with you in 28 days”. Still waiting. Exemption.
- May: Month of exam. Went very well even for courses that seemed impossible. Grace.
- June: Part-time job springing from my internship and I was getting paid. Provision.
- July: I made headway in my project. I almost gave up but He sent help (Seyi) my way. Breakthrough.
- August: Project submitted. Degree ended. Sustenance.
- September: Full-time job. Change of accommodation very stressless (God bless Tolu Faloye). Goodness.
- October: He answered my prayer of bringing a friend to Christ. Salvation.
- November: I finally understood the project I was working on (FATCA) after about 2 months on it. Understanding.
- December: Safe flying and successful wedding of my sister. Tender mercies.
I’m sure you also have a lot to be thankful for. Try keeping a Journal of Blessings. I wasn’t faithful with it all through last year though but I should continue now.
Food for thought:
Take a look at your body. Have you thanked God for everything that is right with it?
