*You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat.” Isaiah 25:4
In 2016, Shelter one of the leading homeless charities in the UK, conducted a survey on homelessness. The results found out that three million hard-working families are just one paycheck away from losing their homes, a study has found.
This means that one in three working families in England would not be able to pay their rent or mortgage for more than a month if they lost their jobs. That’s like living on the edge of a cliff, with the constant threat of losing your step and facing thousands of feet below. That is quite terrifying and equally sad.
Today, I am simply thankful that I am employable, can create work and have a roof over my head.
I am thankful that God despite my wrong doings some times still blesses the work of my hands through constant stream of work and income, that makes it possible to secure shelter. I am no better than the next person, it’s purely the grace of God.
Lord I am very greatful for shelter, the ability to obtain and hold on to it. May my gratitude today be acceptable in your presence.
Now, over to you dear readers, WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL TO GOD FOR TODAY?
