Today is my thanksgiving even though i realize that the memory of other folks who have done theirs have faded.
I am thankful for:

1. God (He has stayed by me and made me strong)
2. Family (They are the best)
3. My friends (close and not so close)
4. Foes (They have helped me grow)

So i scribble on my phone and today i blog my scribbles because i am indeed thankful for a wonderful year, i have seen the mercies of God and His faithful. Thank you Jesus, i love you.

I have an audience so a lot has been edited but here goes: (major ranting to build sha)

"I refuse to be less than who i am. I refuse to be less than who God created me to be. I am a woman of virtue, full of the spirit of God. I refuse to conform to the rat race and to a world that wants to fashion me according to its principles.

I am a woman of God and i have a choice, i refuse to live less than who i was created to be. i refuse to be crooked in any way... i refuse to conform to the way things are done in the world system.

Scriptures say 'as He is in heaven so am i on earth...'

'I am a new creation, victorious in life and my environment may be speaking to me but so am i (That is what this is all about) I am bigger on the inside, i give color to the environment, i don't receive color from my environment, i am a thermostat and not a thermometer, a thermometer goes with the flow, i create my own temperature.
I am a woman of honor, virtue and integrity, a woman God is proud of even if my world disdains me, heaven is proud of me'.

Finally, i refuse to complain, murmur or gossip, it is not my heritage, my heart is good soil. It's circumstances don't change its steadfastness. The hurts and betrayals it goes through don't change its steadfastness. It cannot be broken or damaged, it is sure and trusting God daily, not myself or anyone else. Glory

I am thankful!

  1. Dear Tisha,

    This is very refreshing and absolutely true. As children of God we shouldn't have to conform to the things of the world. Neither shoolud we think less of ourselves cos we are wonderfully and fearlfully made. A masterpiece of His handy work. This is indeed a very beautiful thanksgiving messsage straight from a heart of gratitude.

    God bless you always,

    I wait a whole day for a comment. I think this is worth it.
    Thanks a lot!

  3. Good for you. You just reminded me that I have a lot to be thankful for so I'm resolving to complain less from now on. ^_^

  4. It's great to know that we don't have to settle for less than God intended.
    "i refuse to complain, murmur or gossip, it is not my heritage, my heart is good soil." This is a great and profound line, if only we would always adopt such an attitude.

    I learnt that complaining does nothing for the believer.
    Thanksgiving is a gift.

    @ Gospel Girl
    That's right gal.

    Its my attitude, i can't remember how i forgot.


Say whats on your mind. Still loving cos i don't see myself ever becoming a hater or confirming to the voice of the crowd either.
What can i say? Tell me what you think!
