Happy March 1st Everyone:)
Wow, I can’t believe that we are already beginning our journey into the 3rd month of the year. On February 1, 2016, I shared with all of you that as part of my journey to be more reflective and aware about what is happening in my life, how I am growing, what decisions I am making, and what is teaching me, I will be sharing, on the first day of each new month, the 5 things that I am most grateful for, from the month before. What I shared in that post is that, no matter what is happening around us, it’s important to remember to “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18).
For the month of February, here are 5 things that I am grateful for 🙂
1. New beginnings: new opportunities, new weeks, new days.
It’s amazing what God can do when you just trust him! I started a new job assignment this month, and as challenging as it is to manage that, plus my PhD, boy am I grateful grateful grateful for it! I keep telling everyone that God really knows what we need before we even ask, and He is always on time! Never too early, and never too late, just on time:) It’s been a beautiful month of so many new beginnings so I am thankful for new opportunities, for new assignments and projects, for new weeks and new days to work on everything I love:)
2. Spiritual knowledge: divine health, letting go of toxic energies and people and spiritual mentors.
It’s been a growing month for me spiritually, and because of what I learned in February, I can’t wait to unravel the lessons for March. I learned in February that as a child of God, I have have divine health always. I need to proclaim and confess that everyday and shall it be. I also learned that toxic energies including people, and things, should have no place in my life. I am grateful for learning that it’s okay to let go of people who are not building your spirit and helping you become the best of who you are! And I’m so very grateful for all my spiritual mentors who were able to reveal these things to me!
3. Morning silence
I’m in love with the quietness and peace of the world at wee hours of the morning. For the first time in a very long time, I actually heard the birds singing! Early early morning hours have become my favorite time of the day and I am definitely more than grateful for them:)
4. Order, restoration, and organization
When I decided to become a lot more intentional about being orderly in everything that I do, I have finally managed to have some much desired order in my life . Thanks to our Month of Order at church, I was so conscious about restoring my life to the best of what God wants in to be, and I was too intentional about putting my affairs (bills, time, work, projects) in order. I still have a long way to go but as long as I am organized, and intentional about my orderliness, we are moving upwards and forward!
5. Dreams and visions about the future
Need I say more?? I’m so grateful to God for restoring my ability to see myself the way that He sees me. I am encouraged and inspired by the visions and dreams He is daily dropping in my heart. I know that greater things are yet to come, and I am enjoying the process of working towards them <3! I’m so happy to trust He that knows my future better than I could ever imagine it!
That’s it for me from this month of February friends! As I shared in my last article, so important to show gratitude, as it frees you from negative energies and thoughts, and allows you to celebrate life in it’s most sincere manifestation! So share with us, what happened to you in February 2016 that you grateful for my friend? What are you looking forward to in March 2016? I would love love love to hear your thoughts!
