Good morning, and Happy Thanksgiving (if you celebrate)! I hope your day is full of the Father’s blessings!
While I realize it is Thanksgiving, and you have a million more important things to do than to read this blog, I wanted to stop in for a moment to talk about thankfulness. Unfortunately, I haven’t always been thankful for the Lord’s blessings in my life.
Sometimes I hardly ever saw them because I was too worried about worldly stuff instead of focusing on the things above. How foolish of me. The Lord has given me abundantly more than I could ever need.
This doesn’t mean that my life always goes the way I would like it to. It doesn’t. But I know that the Lord holds it all in my hands, and that He is doing what is best for me, even when I cannot see it.
I am thankful for His wisdom and goodness in planting our family where we are now, even though at times I felt like I went kicking and screaming. That was not very smart of me.
I now know that the wiser course of action is to do my best to follow God’s will, and to joyfully accept my circumstances. Again, He knows what is best!
I can find so many small blessings all around me if I just look. There are so many reasons to be thankful.
I am thankful for this blog, and for you! It is nice to have a place where I can pour out my thoughts when I need to.
I hope that the Lord is glorified here. I hope that His will, and not mine, is done.
I hope you have an amazing and wonderful day with your families and/or friends! I know that I could easily choose to focus on the negative, because a very important person to me will not be here. But again, the Lord knows why, and He knows best!
If you are alone today, please remember that you are loved with an everlasting love. You have been created in the image of God, and He loves you so much!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, friends. Let’s remember to serve our homes and families well!
“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.'”-Hebrews 12:28-29
