Today’s post is going to be rather short. But I felt the need to write it after seeing the photo above. The moment I saw it, I paused, gave thanks and attempted to continue scrolling through my Instagram timeline. However, something within me did not permit me to do so. Instead, I began to reflect and as I did that, I realised that God’s faithfulness knows no bounds. I realised that though I may have my daily struggles and concerns, they could be much worse. I realised that protection may have come in the form of unanswered prayers. I realised that God must have ensured I never needed lifting up from certain troubles, by ensuring I never fell in the first place. I realised that God has protected me from costly soul ties, buy keeping my heart hidden in Him all my life. I realised that though at times I am not certain on what I desire, God has always made sure I know what will be detrimental to my existence.
I realised that though I feel I’m still on the journey to my breakthrough, God has protected me from so many ‘beenthrough’s’. When I reflected on the image above, I could not help but cry and give thanks to God for His faithfulness. I realised that I often thank God for the things I know He has done, but not for the silent miracles. The daily benefits He loads me with, whilst I am asleep and ignorant.

So I want to encourage you today, to say thank you to God for the blessings you have no clue about. The suffering you have been protected from, for the grace that you never needed to cry out for. Count the blessing in never having to ask for a blessing. Be grateful for His faithfulness, the faithfulness that you never got a chance to see.
