It is a great day to be alive.
Yes, I know you might have a few things to complain about, the things that didn’t happen as planned in 2016, the opportunities that were missed and the goals that could not be achieved. Why I understand all of these, I still challenge you my friend, how grateful are you?
Another fifty weeks has been packaged for you in this year to dream again, fifty weeks to reset the goals, fifty weeks of grand opportunities, fifty weeks of challenging yourself to show up big time. My friend, how grateful are you?
Many have trusted God for a life partner, you are married, how grateful are you?
Many are praying for the fruit of the womb, you have children, yet you are complaining, but God has been so kind and generous to you, how grateful are you?
There are millions of people in the world, who are jobless, homeless and needy, but here you are, blessed with a job, you have a roof over your head and you have hope. My friend, how grateful are you?
I want you to see this day as an opportunity to be grateful; to thank God for everything He’s done.
I encourage you today to be grateful, just like when our kids say, you are the best dad in the world to show appreciation, in the same way, I want you to do so to your maker, appreciate him for what he’s done, for what he will do, and what he is doing, because the more you show appreciation, the more God will do for you
