Thankful Thursday

"No one is as capable of gratitude as one who has escaped the kingdom of night." Elie Wiesel

I know what it's like to live in the dark...to live in fear...in hate...in shame. I know what it's like to fight against those who want to hurt you for no reason....And I also know what's like to walk in freedom...in the Light.....in peace. 

Today...I am totally grateful for:

-the power of His gentleness that broke through when nothing else could.
-the power of His patience that never forces me but waits until I'm ready
-the power of His love that pushed away the hatred that drove me.
-the power of His presence that reminds me everything will be ok
-the power of His grace that raised me up and made me more than I ever could've been.....
