For my readers who know me in real life, you know that I’ve grown up in the church. As a small child I didn’t go to church like that, but my mom got saved when I was in the 6th grade, and I got flung into the church. Now I may not be anywhere near where I need to be spiritually, but I will tell ya…the Lord is working on me for sure. I was about to do another blog post, but something just told me to go to youtube and look up this song to post it. I think now more than anytime, is the time to really get real with ourselves. Life is too short and I’m not gonna go try to tell you to go and get saved…that’s not what this post is for…but I do want you to stop and think…if the earth rumbled underneath your feet…what would you do? If this huge tsunami came and reshaped the land…what would you do? I’m just so thankful and grateful for everyday that I wake up with breath in my body. Because he didn’t have to wake me up today. He didn’t have to wake you up today. But he did. And that is by his grace and mercy. I think we as a people, we’ve become so used to disaster and tragedy that when it occurs, it’s not surprising. But to me, that just shows that the end times are near. I mean look at it…look at all that is happening…I think in the very least that when we see tragedy, it should make us hold our loved ones closer, it should make us cherish and appreciate the little things. Should make us not be so cross at the other cars in traffic, make us be nice and respectful to the barista, the cashier, the waitress…I mean at the very least people. I hope that you don’t just click past this blog post, and that you take a moment to really let these words in the song speak to your spirit.
Not even from looking at this from a tragedy aspect. Anytime that you’re getting depressed and you feel like, everybody has it better than you…just let these words come into your mind and you will be reminded at how blessed you are. Even if you woke up this morning and the doctor told you it’s cancer…you’re blessed, because you woke up this morning. And you’re gonna fight against it. In other words, no matter how grim the situation may look to you…it could be so much worse…Lord knows, it could be so much worse…It could’ve been me…
The name of the song by the way is “Thank You” by Walter Hawkins. We used to sing this at my old church, and I wish we had youtube back then, because what I would have loved is to find my church choir singing this song…I’m not gonna post her name on my blog, but we had a sanger (yes a sanger, bc she could sang! lol) who would blow the water out of this song!!! If this song doesn’t bring you to tears, idk what will!
