Counting gifts, one gift at a time…

Thank You Father, for the headphones in my bag, so I can listen to worship songs wherever I go. It really helps me to focus on you, and not the things of this world.

Thank You Father, for the good breakfast we had this morning. The bread from Dukes Bakery (@United Square) and Barcode Bakery was such a treat to our stomachs.

Thank You Father, for allowing us to experience Your Hand at work in our hearts through this very challenging trial. Thank You that You promise to be found whenever we seek You with all of our hearts. Thank You that You’ll never leave us nor forsake us! You will not leave us in this situation alone! You will carry us through till completion – an outcome that is victorious and all glory goes to You!

Thank You Father for EP that has arranged for Ps Jason to come over tonight to pray for sis & baby. Thank You for prayer warriors who are cheering us on. It’s such a gift, Lord.

Thank You Father, for the skylight…for the light that shines through the clouds, reminding me that in the midst of our tears, as long as You are our foundation, our Light, You will shine through the clouds and rain…and we’ll see that rainbow. Your rainbow, Your covenant with us!

Thank You for the birds that flew past, reminding me how in You, we will soar on wings like eagles……..oh yes, we will~

Thank You Father, for Bren’s silly antics that keep our realities a little more humorous and of good cheer 🙂 He’s walking around showing off his shirt like an in-house model wannabe haha.

Thank You Father, for this mobile phone – a gift from Bren last year. Thank You that You’ve always provided for us, in every area of our lives!

Thank You Father, for silly Gypsie who’s scurrying around outside our room right now. Her morning barks are replacing my alarm for now.

Thank You Father, for my TCM doctor whom I’m going to see later. Thank God for her expertise & ministering way of service.

Thank You Father, for yesterday’s chicken rice lunch which was so delicious, I still remember it. Thank You for the sweetness in sharing biscuits with Kaelyn after Sunday school too! Thank You for stopping the rain just after she prayed!

Thank You Father, for the warm comforters that keep us cosy as we rest,especially on colder months… Thank You for the old but durable basket we got from IKEA (!) 3 years ago, that can still store our necessities well. Simple things, but so important. Thank You too, for my fav beige cardigan that keeps me warm and comfortable…and goes well with pretty much anything!

Thank You Father, for I know You are watching over me & my loved ones. Every small and big thing that happens – You are sovereign over them all. Thank You for the earthly blessings that You’ve provided for us to enjoy daily, for opening my eyes to them so I don’t take anything for granted. Thank You that You are beside me everywhere that I go – every step of the way is lovingly prepared for me. Even when I don’t fully comprehend Your Hand, help me to trust in Your heart, Father!

Lastly, thank You Father, that You’ve given me life. Life that’s more than abundant. Life in You that shows me the very reasons I was born on earth for. People You want me to meet, things You want me to accomplish, a divine purpose that can only be done through Your grace.

Lord, I take everything with thanksgiving….knowing that You have a hope for me like none other. A future so bright, nothing and no one else can offer.

In You, I rest…..I rest in Your love for me. 🙂
