What’s Great About Your Life Right Now?

I stumbled across a thread on Reddit.com last week in which someone had asked the question, “What in your life is awesome right now?” To my surprise, there were quite a few thoughtful and meaningful responses like “celebrating 6 months of sobriety” and “my daughter was born today.”

We’re inundated with bad news every day, whether it be economic, societal, political or personal. It can sometimes be an overwhelming task just to get through the day, let alone find something to be thankful for. However, despite our earthly woes, we all have quite a bit to be thankful for in this life.

So what about you? What’s great about your life right now?

    What’s great about my life is the fact that I have an awesome career. My husband has a job. We have two beautiful children and a roof over our heads. Thanks!

  • That I am blessed to see another day and the desire to stay focused and sober.

  • Buck says:

    To have a family and that God has also provided me a loving wife to share life with. To have a job that provides for my family. To have health and the ability to think clearly, at least most of the time. And to to have the knowledge of Christ that has allowed me to know God and to know that He loves me and that through his Son, anyone, including me, can lay hold of everlasting life.

  • Nikki says:

    I am about to celebrate my 1st year marraige anniversary to a wonderful minister. This is truly a marraige sanctioned by God. Our church just moved into a new building from a hotel conference room where we can truly grow the ministry. To know that the Lord is with me ALLways! Praise GOD!

  • Ariel says:

    I am so glad that this is exactly what I’m doing right now.
    I’ve started to write journal including finding 5 thankful events happened to me since 4/1.

    I couldn’t have a hope, and was blind.
    Then, he made me start writing journal to become who I want to be.
    It obviously works. Since I had at least 5 thankful events, how i can be depressed.
    How I can be sad or I can doubt God’s love.
    It is okay that those events are little tiny things, such as well done for the quiz, having a sunny day and so on.

    I am so happy to be able to make a comment here.
    Praise GOD !!

    thank you and love you all

  • Teresa says:

    What’s great about my life right now is I woke up this morning with another chance to start new. My family is healthy, we have jobs, the Lord meets our needs each day. Each day we can grow closer to God is a blessing. It is enough. The material things mean nothing. They are nice but without God it would all be pointless.

  • Gabe says:

    I didnt kill myself last week, and Im thankful for that.

    • Dear Gabe, hang in there bro. God has a plan for you. Tony provided some good counsel. You also need to get around some good people who can encourage you and walk with you through whatever you’re going through right now. I’m a priest and teach at a Catholic school where we pray before every class, so you’ll be in my prayers and also the prayers of my classes as well. You are blessed!

    • scott says:

      just stay faithful in the lord and the holy spirt will guide you he is awsome and faithful he has so much to give and there,s nothing greater then his love and he do,se love you

    • katrina chase says:

      I too am grateful to have not taken my life, and for a God who speaks clearly to me reminding me this life is His and not mine to take.

  • Tony says:

    always remember Gabe…God said a bruised reed He would not crush. He loves you and all he requires is” faith the size of a mustard seed.” What does that mean? Try starting by finding a closet ( or as I sometimes use ) the bathroom, talk one on one with him with no interruptions, for as long as you need. Bare you soul before him and ask Him to change your mourning into dancing. Trust that He loves you and he is willing, and get bible and start with the book of John ( so you can start learning about Him and His ways ). Pray daily asking God to teach you and to lead you into His peace. I will say a prayer for you too…Don’t think there is no one who loves or understands you. I can name three. Father Son and Holy Spirit. God bless you.

  • tameika says:

    what is good about my life is that i have jesus,a loving husband and two wonderful kids and its all because of jesus chirst if it wasn,t for jesus i would not be alive today so i have to give praise to him because he died on calvary cross for me.today i can boldly say that i am bless and highly favoured

  • Dilliser Rai says:

    I have got peace in my life,receiving Jesus as my personal savior, it is really true,He died for my sin on the Calvary and shed all His blood for my sin sake,He became my shield and a good helper in any difficulties,
    He teaches me to do depend on Him while i am in trouble,and He gives me a comfort in my heart and make me happiness,so that i can share my happiness to my friends telling them about the love of the Lord Jesus Christ to the sinners upon this earth,i think this is a very good opportunity to all people around the world to hear His good news and to do believe without delay.There is not any God to save the world from the sins,accept His precious blood.I can’t stay without thanking my Lord Jesus the savior.

    Praise the Lord for this day, for opening this sight to me, and getting inspiration from all of you that have left comments. May this family expand throughout the world, bringing peace and love to us all and all those around us. May the Spirit flow through all of us, uniting us as one body under our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I am extatic to be born again today – for my health and that of my family, and for Love, may you all have a Blessed Day, Praise the Lord.

  • Steve says:

    I thank God for the gift of each day, a black slate to do with what every He and myself chooses. It’s like Christmas everyday! Someone once told me to wake to your alarm each day as a child on Christmas morning. Now would that child hit the snooze button? :) Rise with excitement and Glorify God!

  • Bud Offutt says:

    I am so BLESSED in every way. I thank God continually for His grace and love for me. I Was in a bad way, a heart attack, and congestive heart failure. My Pastors, Mike Garrett, and Mike Partradge, came and prayed for me. I truly believe GOD HEARD THAT PRAYER! Now I am so thankful, I thought I was thankful to God before? But now I am thankful for every thing.We tend to forget the little things, Can you emagine being thankful to God for toilet paper? I AM! I thank God for my wife, my children, and yes my kitty cats. Every thing that is on this earth or in the earth, THANK GOD! I want to SHOUT it to the world! Bud Offutt.

  • Jay says:

    I am happy because in two days I shall be celebrating the one month anniversary of when I got saved! Not long but the time I have had with Christ feels like years. I am happy because I think I have done well in my exams and I know that the Holy Spirit is within me and I have been blessed with God’s everlasting love!

  • disego says:

  • I truly thank God for blessing me with such a beautiful family and placing me to preach His gospel where ever i go, and to have the courage to face each day. Thanking Him for the HUGE transformation He has done in my life and being so highly annoited at the age of 18 while other youngsters are just living their lives without involving Christ Jesus….
