Dear God:

 

I want to thank you for what you have already done.

I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards; I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better; I am thanking you right now. 

I am not going to wait until people say they are sorry or until they stop talking about me; I am thanking you right now. 

I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears; I am thanking you right now. 

I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves; I am going to thank you right now. 

I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and the house is quiet; I am going to thank you right now.

I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or until I get a job; I am going to thank you right now. 

I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief; I am going thank you right now. 

I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges are removed; I am thanking you right now.

 

I am thanking you because I am alive. 

I am thanking you because I made it through the day's difficulties. 

I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles. 

I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do more and do better. 

I am thanking you because you have not given up on me.

 

God, You're so good, and You're good all the time.
