⭐️💜Thankful for my Creator 💜⭐️

God reminds how wonderful He is and makes me a better person. Giving myself to Him was the best thing I have ever done. He doesn’t control my actions, but He guides me to make the most positive choices I truly can. There have been periods in the past couple years where I questioned my faith, but since I was a 4 year old walking across the road to church by myself, God has been calling in on my heart, He has not left me.

Throughout my life, I have explored other churches and other faiths. I finally found what I thought was “home“, and I studied there for 15 years. I truly felt connected to the pastor. Unfortunately, due to hostility and legal drama, I’m not able to return. I’m so thankful he met with me recently and prayed with me, that shows how amazing our Creator is. He puts people in our life in a time and season that is best.

I had the opportunity to meet with 2 very intelligent people today that are such an encouragement toward me to stay strong. I have so many people that my Lord has placed in my life with the sole purpose of reminding me that there is goodness in the world. My family is hundreds of miles away, and I’m going to be spending Thanksgiving with a true inspiration for how you can stay positive despite the negativity in the world. This particular person has done some inspirational things in the past couple of years:

  • Overcame death
  • Accepted responsibility for mistakes she has made
  • Studied therapeutic coping mechanisms for stressors in her life
  • Learned that despite negativity that pursues her, she does have good qualities that she can celebrate (see previous blogs Celebrate you and Celebrate you 2)
  • Realized she is a creation of Almighty God, and is not a mistake, like she is told.

If you haven’t guessed, I am spending Thanksgiving with myself… Stephanie Rea Tilley. I’m content enjoying the day in my beautiful home that I’m blessed with. I overcame death when I survived a car wreck that put me into a coma. I’ve accepted responsibility for the mistakes I’ve made, including and instead of: blaming others, and I’ve sought out various forms of help. Through the help and therapy I’ve received, I’ve learned and am still learning coping strategies for the stressors in my life and continue to take extensive steps toward moving forward. I’m finding positivity in daily life and have realized as long as I have God, there will always be that positivity, light, and love.

I’m trying to share what I have learned (as a mother/and in therapy) in my breastfeeding support group on Facebook, and on these blogs.

In the words of the notable Self-affirmation specialist, Stuart Smalley: “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and dog-gone it, people like me.” 😉

I’m going to end on 2 notes:

  1. Happy thanksgiving!!🦃🍁🍽
  2. Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever! -Psalm 106:1

  1. Thank you for posting. I’m sorry to hear that you’re spending it alone but keep your head held very high. You are a very precious daughter of Christ and unfortunately in this day and age, its too easy to get lost and lose sight of it all, the very real purpose that the Lord our God has placed us on this beautiful earth for. This season isn’t the season to be grateful because each and every day is a day of thanksgiving and celebration of life. I know you know this soo much more than a lot of us having experienced it first hand. Tis the season to remember to always have our hearts full of thanksgiving and to pursue the course that the Lord God has intended for us to follow. May God bless always!! Happy Thanksgiving
