Taking Time To Tell God Thank You

Every morning when I workout at the gym and I am running in the gym I ask God to give me the strength to finish.  To give me the strength to not quit and give up half way through when I am so close to the end.  I honestly couldn’t explain any other way I manage to finish my workouts in the mornings if it were not for the strength that God gives me.  But that’s not all that God gives me the strength for.  

There are so many things in my life that I would not have made it through if it were not for his love and his strength.  I thank him for so many things, my daughter, my words and the talent that I have, my best friend and all of my other friends who enhance my life in some way.  Mostly I thank him for never failing me and always guiding me, even when I couldn’t see where he was guiding me to.  

I don’t know what my life would be like without all of the things I have been through but I do know how lost I would be without God weaved throughout every facet of my life.  I just wanted to take the time out today to thank God for everything that he has seen me through and for never leaving my side.  Until tomorrow…Never forget that through God all things are possible.
