It has been a crazy week and frankly as I sit here and try to come up with 10 things to put on my list they either sound silly (like today I am very thankful for toothpaste, wonderful invention) or they are too hard to explain.
Right now I am thankful for peace. Not because I have all the answers or because I know how life is going to go. But peace because I know WHOSE I am and I know how it turns out. Getting there may be a battle, but I know what the end looks like. There is something amazingly reassuring in that. I am thankful that my husband knows how to speak wisdom and peace to me like no one I've ever met. I'm thankful that I am recognizing some things in myself that I may not like, but I never knew they were there before. I can't fix them until I know they are there. I am thankful for truth, and life, and knowing that I always have a source and a guidebook. I am not in this alone and I have a blueprint for life. So thankful that I am not making it up as I go.
I am thankful that God is the same today as He was in the days of Abraham and He will be when I stand before Him one day.
I am thankful that He is the breathe of life and by Him all things are held together.
I am thankful that He promises that when we seek Him we will find Him when we seek Him with all our hearts.
I am thankful that He is THE way, THE truth and THE life - not one of many options.
I am thankful that I can hear Him speak - and that He is so willing to pursue my heart and get my attention.
I am thankful.
