Shift your focus from things that aren’t working to the things that are. Look closely and see those things God has done for you this year. When you begin to think deeply, you’ll find reasons to be thankful.
It’s day 3 of the Think-Thank Challenge 2019!!! I know sometimes it’s hard to think about things to be grateful for. But hey, what we see as normal is just the mercies of God. It’s not ‘normal’ to go out and come back without being harmed. It’s not ‘normal’ to have your food digested with ease. It’s not ‘normal’ to have all the basic things you have. So why not count your blessings and name them one by one? 😀
If you’re not yet following this challenge, please do!
Simple! It’s a fun way of giving thanks using all the alphabets in the English language. The idea is to think about all that happened through the year (good, bad, ugly) and thank God using the A-Z thanksgiving format. Things may not have turned out the way we planned, but hey, it could have been worse.
Think-Thank Challenge 2019 (#TTC2019) kickstarts from the 6th through to the 31st of December 2019!!!! I’m so excited about this year and I hope to have all of you join in!
I would be posting the 5 things I’m thankful for each day using the alphabet for the day. E.g. for letter A, I’m thankful I’m ALIVE.

Let’s get started!!
My Thanksgiving List for Letter ‘A’
I’m thankful for the AIR I breathe (without having to pay for it.
I’m thankful for days when I haven’t had to deal with ANXIETY this year.
I’m thankful for the ADVENTURES I went on this year!
I’m thankful that God didn’t ABANDON me. Even in times when I felt He had, He never did.
I’m thankful for ANSWERED prayers, even for the minutest requests I asked.
There’s so much to be thankful for! What are you thankful for that starts with an A?
It was my second day in the ward. I could see all the distressed faces— my mom, my dad, and even my brothers looked sad. I shut my eyes hard, trying to picture myself in another place. A peaceful place. A quiet place. Where is that white light they say people see when they’re about to crossover?
