The Water of Gratitude


He watches us take every breath as we fight for air.

He watches us open our mouths as we eat with closed hearts.

He watches us bow down with our inflated egos.

He watches us as we speak without regret.

He watches us be unhappy.

We’re unhappy because we’re unsatisfied-


We blame people, situations, places, health, even time.

But to blame these is to blame Him-

because He controls.

We blame because we are afraid.

We are afraid of admitting our mistakes because that hurts.

It brings memories of the blessed time when our rosy soul was pure.

Saying we corrupted it makes us feel low, lacking love and piety.

We feel like we’re empty.

But there is one thing, maybe more, but one for sure-

that makes us feel good.

It makes us feel blessed.

It makes everyday that much worth it.

It makes life LIFE.

Hold on to it for that dear life and say, “Alhamdulillah.”

“If you give thanks, I will give you more,” He said.

He now Listens.

He listens Now.

Ask Him for the Water of Gratitude.

It will cleanse your soul.
