I am so grateful for what God has given me. I am not very wealthy, nor have i a number of life goals met.
But I am so grateful that God has awakened a seemingly ceaseless desire to hide his word in my heart.
And I find that as this happens, the Word is coming alive in my daily walk. Or better said, because I am more keenly observing the Word, I notice God's Presence more.

My worries are dwindling as i dwell on Him.

This does not mean I sit idly by,
looking behind me, while living a sub-par life.
Rather, because of the Word, because of the way God pulls me to Follow,
I look to the Future, while trusting Him today.

Lord, my need for you appears greater daily.
But so does your Grace. Help me to take what you teach and apply it.
That way, I will not swerve in my faith--as much-- and I will keep seeing the light of your Word in my life.
Regardless, get the Glory. In Jesus' name, amen.

'gratefulness' is something to be very 'grateful' for in one's Life...
