December is here!!!
Who else is as excited as I am?
I love, love, love December because it’s such a joyful, bubbling and lively month.
Not only does it shower in the most significant event in the history of mankind – CHRISTMAS; it also doubles as my birth month!
Any other December born in the house? (PS: Say hello, I may have something for you😉)
So in light of this season, I want to share 10 things I’m particularly grateful for, over the past year (in no particular order):
I’m super thankful for my support systems.
I have an amazing family who love me for who I am and respect my decisions even when they are not the usual.
I’m also blessed with a lot of wonderful friends, who encouraged, counseled, prayed for, and cheered me on this year.
I experienced some tough seasons but I had a tribe that stood by me.
There was a time the enemy even suggested suicide but the prayers of godly friends frustrated his plans.
A special shoutout to the amazing @SarahO: Thanks for all you did and still do. You’re God-sent. May you never lack help as you journey through life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Can I just take a moment to gush about God?
He is indeed a present help in time of trouble.
Looking back at the year, there were so many instances God showed up for me.
My health was one major area the enemy tried to attack.
I remember going for a particular procedure, and the doctors were like…but you’re so young na and you’re already doing this?
I started to feel sad but the word of the Lord comforted me. What satan was after was my life but he didn’t succeed.
Truly, I’m the one God helped and I’ve come to worship him.
I don’t know about you but I can testify that God’s favor is real.
The day I was called to resume at my place of work, someone else had turned down the offer at the last minute. It was almost unbelievable.
Then to add icing to the cake, God took care of my accommodation for 6 whole months! Just like that.
Everything that happened in that season of my life was simply a result of God’s favor.
My growth this year has been quite significant.
Sometimes, I look at myself like “Na you be dis?”
I’m really thankful for the teachers in this season of my life.
God will specially bless Coach Debola-Deji Kurumi aka DDK for me!
From Doability Coaching, to Ignition Intensive, to Acceleration Intensive and now to the Immerse Inner Circle!
Indeed it’s the EPIC YEAR.
I also honor God in the lives of my pastors- Pastor Move and Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche. It’s such a privilege to be fed and nurtured by God, through their ministries.
I do not take this for granted.
I’m specially thankful to the one with the key to that door.
For your smiles, your prayers, your gifts, your patience, your kindness and for being a safe place to be.
It’s been an unusual year for us but God’s mercies kept us.
Thank you for not giving up on me, and on us.
When there is life, there is hope. And where there’s hope there’s life.
Despite the seemingly hopeless situations I experienced this year, each new day brought something to look forward to.
I’m thankful for yesterday’s testimonies, today’s realities and tomorrow’s expectations.
I’m thankful for Progress, both the obvious and the not-so-obvious.
I may not be exactly where I want, but I’m definitely not where I was.
There are some goals I couldn’t reach, but I won’t trade them for the lessons I’ve learnt.
8. ANSWERED PRAYERS.
2019 is full of testimonies not just in my life, but in the lives of friends.
It’s been a year of beautiful and handsome babies!!!😍😍😍
God even blessed a friend with a set of twins!
Truly, he answers prayers.
As challenging as it is sometimes, I’d be lying to say that I don’t enjoy my job.
Well, maybe not all the time..lol.
More than anything, I see my job as a privilege and a responsibility.
Getting great feedback from my patients/their caregivers always gives me pleasure.
And I’m super thankful I had the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people again this year.
What can I say of this vibrant, phenomenal, resilient and super amazing woman?
Eunice Ololade Adeniran, you’re my favorite person ever!
I thank God for the gift of you.
Thank you for not giving up even when life pushed you down.
Thank you for growing, for leaving your comfort zone and camping on stretch street.
Thank you for staying strong in faith, through the doubts and discouragements of everyday life.
Above all, thank you for not disappointing the Father, for expressing his love and faithfulness through your words and deeds to the people he has sent you to.
I am super proud of you, babe!😘
So what are you thankful for?😊
