I woke up and prayed this morning (as I do every morning). But this particular morning held some significance. It is the last day of the last full month that I will have to spend in prison. I had to thank God for bringing me through this trying period of my life. I had to thank Him for allowing all of the disease, death, and foolishness to pass over me. For holding my hand and standing by me through the darkest moments and hardest times of my life. For keeping a shield of protection over me and my family, and supplying us with all of our needs. At times, I may not have had all that I wanted but He made sure that I had all that I needed. I had to thank Him for putting the right people in my life to instill knowledge and direction. He has just been so gracious and kind and nice, when I am so undeserving of all His goodness and mercy. He has shown me that He will carry me through any and all situations going forward with my life. I couldn’t have made it this far without Him. As I approach this last curve of the journey, I can truly say, “God is good, all the time and all the time, God is good!” 9 days and a wake-up. It feels so good to say that this morning. Thank you God!
