What I’m thankful for today:
I’m thankful for influence.
I’m thankful for the influence of people that God has placed in my path over the years. So often they have inspired and encouraged me greatly without ever knowing it. They’ve pushed me to keep striving, to keep trusting, and to reach high with my goals and my aspirations. They’ve inspired me with the desire to be more like our Lord. And I am so thankful for this.
I’m thankful for the influence of the written word. Especially the Bible, because it has changed my life in every single way, and made me a better person for having read it.
I’m thankful for others who have been given the talent to write good books that carry with them good influences for right and truth.
I’m thankful for the influence of God’s creation. Oh how many times has the wind through the trees and the sunshine on my face carried away the cares of my heart when I was so weary!
I’m thankful for the influence of godly friends who encourage me to keep holding on, to keep striving and to keep pursuing the calling that God has given to me.
And I’m thankful for the sphere of influence that God has given me. I pray, oh how I pray that my influence will always be the kind that encourages and uplifts and points to the One who is the only true pattern to follow.
