Today is Thanksgiving and I am up early this morning, taking a few minutes to reflect on what I am thankful for. I realized as I mentally made my list that it is not so much "what" I am thankful for but for whom I am thankful for. I am thankful for the Lord being in my life, because without Him I don't know where I would be today. My life is truly blessed because of His prescence. I am thankful because of His plan and His will for my life. I am thankful that He has brought others into my life. I am thankful for the way I have seen Him work in the lives of those around me. I am thankful that as I journey along on this path I am doing it with Him right beside me. When I fall down He picks me up and when I am dry He fills my cup! I am thankful that He meets my needs. I am thankful He has given us His Word. I am thankful for His love, His protection, His peace, His comfort and His mercy. I am thankful for His beautiful creation surrounding me. I am thankful for the blessed hope of Christ's return some day soon and I am thankful for the joy that is awaiting me in Heaven. So as my day is beginning to unfold I have much joy in knowing the Lord and I give Him thanks for all He has done for me.
Learning to Trust God . . . With a Thankful Heart . . . One Day at a Time
This is a brand new blog as I am now on a new type of journey! I am learning more and more each day what it truly means to trust God. This journey is taking me deeper and deeper into what it means to surrender my all to Him. I would love to have you come along with me as I share my ups and downs, my joys and sorrows and as I seek a closer relationship and walk with my Saviour.
I need to add that I am beginning the blog again after almost a year and a half. I am still on a journey to learn to trust God and seek to know His will for me. I write mainly for myself, but anyone is welcome to join me on this journey.
