Thank you, Lord

Thank you for loss- it taught me to appreciate what remains
Thank you for pain- without it I wouldn't know healing
Thank you for uncertainty- I now understand the true meaning of faith
Thank you for exhaustion- I know to save my energy
Thank you for financial difficulty- I've learned to differentiate between what I need and what I want
Thank you for isolation- I know I can stand strong alone
Thank you for the times I was ignored- I recognize how important it is to pay attention
Thank you for what I thought were wrong turns- they were necessary detours
Thank you for my broken heart- it's healed stronger, making me better able to love
Thank you for all my struggles- they've made me the person I am

xo, kb
