I am grateful!
The fact that we are breathing is a blessing; there is always something for everyone to be grateful for and in faith we should be thankful for things that we do not have yet. For if we choose the path of gratitude the rest of our life will be testimonies to God’s blessings.
I thank God for Family, friends, loved ones and most importantly You!
I thank God for answered prayers that made us who we are today, I thank Him for unanswered prayers that kept us on the path He wanted us to be and I thank Him for a future that He has assured us, to come in good time.
I thank God for eyes that see, nose that breath, limbs that function, Heart that beats, mind so sound and Hope that keeps us going.
I thank God for the good we have witnessed, births that reminds us of life, death that reminds us nothing is forever, wonderful marriages, birthdays, new years, Christmas, and new days that just help us keep our hopes alive.
I thank God for good people that makes life worth living, bad people help strengthen our faith, peace that only comes from You, love, kindness and good heart that makes it easy to appreciate your wonders and miracles that we witness everyday.

I thank God for protection and for upholding His words in our life. You said a thousand may fall at our side, and ten thousand at our right hand; but it will not come near us. These words you have kept concerning us, not because we

I thank God for Joy in our heart. The joy that doesn’t depend on what man can do for us but on what God has been doing for us. I thank God that our life is not in the hands of men to control; no debtors’ threats, no assassins’ letters, no nightmares and no evil threats. I thank God that Our happiness comes from within and our hope in Him is giving us fullness of Joy. *singing* igbati mo ro by Tope Alabi

I thank God for the beautiful things that makes life interesting irrespective of social status. Smiles of trust, hugs of loved ones, gentle touch that says everything will be alright, Sunrise that brings hope, Sunset that brings rest, good food and my favorite Pepsi, music that touches the soul, wonderful jokes that relieves stress and hearts that truly cares. *Singing* Jim Reeve’s we thank thee…
I thank God for new hours, new days, for new months and for new years. I thank God for bringing us this far, keeping us till this hour in spite of all the turmoil the world is facing. He has been faithful despite our unfaithfulness.
I thank God for love. The love He has for us, the love of Christ and the love we share amongst ourselves. The love that makes a man gives up everything for a woman. The love that makes parents invest endlessly in their children. The love that makes siblings protect each other. The love that strengthens friendship bonds. The love that makes the world go round… The love of God that gives us life and teaches us sacrifice. I thank God for Love!
I thank God for those things that currently make us happy. Those things we look at and gives us joy,like our kids, our parents, our friends, our achievements, things we own and things under our care, for we know none is by our might but because God Wills. I am also thankful for we will not lose
any of those things in the remaining days of this year and beyond. For these, I say thank you God.
I thank God for Peace. The peace of mind we enjoy, the peace in our homes, the peace in our workplace, the peace in our schools, the relative peace in our nation and the peace amongst believers. I thank God for being our refuge even in this perilous times and for not forsaking us in spite of all the evil that abound. Father, I thank you.
I thank God for the little things that makes the big difference.

Lord, we give thanks.

I thank God for the little ones. I thank God for the new-borns; so cute and adorable, for kids growing strong and smart, the naughty nieces and nephews, the little cousins that make Christmas worth looking forward to and our babies (no matter how old). I thank God for keeping them safe for us.
I thank God for God. I thank God for His awesomeness, His Love, His mercy, faithfulness, compassion, understanding, for sending His Son, for eternal life, for protection.

I thank God for putting the sea away from the dry land, the mountains and the hills, the forest and the woods all in their places. I thank God for He is perfect!
I thank God for sustenance. For sustaining us everyday; days we had excess, days it wasn’t enough and days we thought we wouldn’t get-by but You, Lord, sustained us till now. Thank you Lord, for busy Mondays, hectic Tuesdays, tiring Wednesdays, eager Thursdays, long awaited Fridays, happy Saturdays and short Sundays. I appreciate you for today and everyday… You are more than worthy of my praise.
I thank God for life for without life we have nothing. Without life there are no aspirations, no hope, no dreams, no future, no friends and no family. But for every new day we see, gives us a chance to better our yesterday and because your love is new every morning, I say thank you, Lord.

I thank God for the Future. A future so bright that will cause people from far and near to appreciate God through us for good. I thank God for a wonderful destiny before us and because we have put our faith in Him, we are assured of extraordinary fate. Father, I thank you!
I thank God for giving us reasons to be thankful. For if we look around and be wise enough to think deep we will see reasons to appreciate God;
Every second of the minute because for every second someone somewhere is taking the last breath
Every minute of the hour because decisions are made in minutes that is affecting millions but not you
Every hour of the day because fortune changes in a matter of hours for good or for bad but goodness is yours
Every day of the week because a new day is a chance to improve on the past and plan for the future
Every week of the month because as the week goes by many grow weak but the Lord strengthens you
Every month of the year because we have not failed in our monthly responsibilities to those who wait on us
Even if you think there is something you have prayed for but you are yet to get, know that all things are working together for your good. If that which you want will not harm you then God is working tirelessly to make sure you have it at the right time!
