Daily Journey Journal #36: Thankful everyday. “Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!” God bless you all.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!


It doesn’t feel like Thanksgiving tomorrow. Three out of the past 5 years of Thanksgiving has been in jail. I have so many things to be thankful for. Everyday is thanksgiving. I have been through so much during these past 5 years that I can always find something to be thankful for. Everyday I can find God’s blessings and be thankful. The top three things that I am thankful is My son Jericho, being able to be part of this program, and my relationship with my higher power I call “YAHWEH”. Life is good. I am blessed and highly favored. Being out of jail is already a thankful feeling. I have been through so much that any little thing for me is a huge blessing. I am not in jail, I am free. Sure I have restrictions and supervision, but I am not behind bars. I am in a new path and have moved past my addiction. I am redeemed and focused. This Thanksgiving will be a day of reflection and a day of being grateful. Thank you Lord for blessing me with this Thanksgiving out of jail. You have delivered me out of my hell and brought me over to the promise land. I was lost, but now I am found. Your love endures forever and I am thankful that you are loving and merciful. I give you all the praise and credit. Continue to guide me with your spirit and help me during every step of the way. Thank you for your love and thank you for allowing a way to you through Jesus Christ. I praise you and worship you. In your MIGHTY name Yahweh I pray. AMEN.
