Spoiler alert: this post is going to be a little “religion-y”. Regardless of your set of beliefs, it might still be worth reading. Today’s prompt for day 4 of the 30 Days of Gratitude challenge is to write about an attribute of God that I am grateful for. Now I know especially in the current day and age that people around me have all kinds of different beliefs, religions, etc. However, even though I plan to use my blog to share my personal opinions, none of my posts are ever intended to disrespect those of differing opinions or beliefs.
I don’t consider myself religious. However, I do believe in God. I believe throughout my life that he has been present in its’ events. I believe in the Holy Bible and believe what it explains about God. I grew up going to church, reading the Bible, and praying. I’m going to try and touch on how greatly I feel it has impacted my life without forcing any beliefs on anyone because, well, no one likes that kinda person.
If you’re like me and believe that God is perfect, you can imagine how difficult it is to pick just one attribute of His that you’re grateful for. When I really got to thinking about it, I’m most grateful for His faithfulness. I have been blessed with an inumerable amount of things and people that I will always be undeserving of. Inversely, I have dealt with a lot of heartache and trials. Most people have. However, through it all, God has never seemed to fail me. I have never had to be without any needs. Even in my darkest of times, I have felt the comfort that eventually things would be all right. In the Bible, God makes promises. To one that believes those promises are real, it really makes a difference when you feel they are kept. Especially when humans break promises to each other all the time.
One of the promises that God mentions is taking care of His children. If I’m considered a child of God, that’s a crazy thought all on its’ own if you knew my extensive laundry list of shortcomings. Anyway, even when I seem to be falling apart, I have always felt taken care of.
Anyway, the only point I’m trying to make is that I’m so grateful to feel that I have one in my corner to always count on no matter how terrible I’ve been. One that doesn’t break promises or give up on me. Even if you yourself don’t believe, I think everyone can agree that that’s all that most people are looking for. Someone to be faithful. I’m thankful that my faithful person is incapable of failing me.
