What are You Thankful for Today?

If you’re having a hard time answering that question, you are not alone.

Some people feel that they don’t have much to be grateful for during the pandemic because of its impact on their health, jobs, and relationships. These days, it takes tremendous strength to be grateful and say, “Thank God.”

So, how do we hold on to gratitude even when times are tough?

Angie Garcia’s story is here to inspire you.

One day, Angie woke up with an excruciating pain on her left knee. Brushing it off as a simple leg pain, she endured it for two months until she couldn’t take it any longer.

When they rushed to the hospital, Angie found out that she had a torn ligament which required her to undergo an emergency surgery.

Suffering in physical pain, Angie was also mentally distressed about where she would get the surgery fee amounting to Php 100,000.

“It was painful. I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t move. All I could do was pray, ‘Please, Lord. I’ve had enough. This would’ve been my 11th surgery, so I didn’t want to go through it,’” lamented Angie.

Like Angie, have you ever come to a point when you’re frustrated about your situation?

How did you overcome it?

At her breaking point, Angie chanced upon The 700 Club Asia and the hosts were praying for someone who has a torn ligament. Deep down, she knew that the prayer was for her.

Angie joined the prayer without second thought. She remembered to trust God and thank Him for her life. She thanked him for the healing that she is yet to experience.

Angie recalled, “I prayed, ‘Lord, thank You! I claim that I will be healed!”

And it happened.

Angie felt instant healing right after the prayer. She immediately texted the program and expressed her gratitude, “I told them, ‘Thank you for your prayers.’ Then I claimed healing of my torn ligament.

Brimming with excitement, Angie went to have her knee checked by the doctor again. To her doctor’s surprise, Angie’s knee was well and healed!

“My doctor told me that my condition looked even better than before!” Angie said while smiling.

How about you, how do you remain thankful when you are going through a suffering?

Angie chose to thank God even before she received healing. She chose to believe that God is greater than her current circumstances. She chose to trust that He will always carry her through.

“The joy in my heart comes from the Lord. That’s the most important thing for me. The joy in my heart, His healing, His provision… everything — big or small— comes from Him. And I would like to thank Him for that,” Angie ended.

What are you grateful for today?

Being thankful isn’t easy in times of suffering. It takes faith to look beyond your current situation and look to God — the one who is in control of everything.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV)

Neo Rivera, Jericho Arceo Team Up for Inspirational Single ‘2AM Wide Awake’

Actor and singer-songwriter Neo Rivera and social media influencer Jericho Arceo have teamed up for Neo’s uplifting new song, 2AM Wide Awake. You can stream it on October 29 on all digital streaming platforms worldwide!

Inspired by the story of The Prodigal Son in the Bible, Neo penned his first single for 2021 as a message of God’s love, grace, and forgiveness. The lyrics tell the story of a person who’s wide awake at 2 AM, wondering how God can still love someone like him who has failed countless times.

“We’ve been a Prodigal Son or Daughter at some point. My journey with Christ isn’t perfect. Many times, I’d question my worth, I couldn’t sleep because of fears. I’d ask, ‘Lord, will Your promises come true? Am I late? If I didn’t rebel, would I be in a different place? Would I meet You?’” Neo said.

The singer-songwriter continued, “That’s when I remind myself of God’s grace, and His plans and timing always prevail. It’s a collection of those moments that made up the song.”

Neo’s personal story and musing from the timeless parable, together with Jericho’s intricately crafted Tagalog rap verse and some smooth, laid back beats, gave birth to the masterpiece that is 2AM Wide Awake.

This relatable song is a perfect anthem for anyone seeking God’s grace and comfort during these trying times.

“You are not alone. I get you. I understand your struggle of having so many questions for God. Sometimes, we ask for answers but what He shows us is His love for us. Even though we have many mishaps in life, He’s ready to bring us back in His arms. He alone is enough,” Neo shared.

2AM Wide Awake is produced by Reverb Worship PH, CBN Asia’s music arm. It is the third on the roster of fresh Christian Contemporary songs that the record label is releasing this year.

“I am excited for 2AM Wide Awake! As we thrive to bring songs about our faith to a wider audience, 2AM’s pop sound will surely be popular among today’s music lovers. I pray that as they hear this song, they will also think about God’s endless love for all of us,” said John Valdes Tan, CBN Asia’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
