One day, I was having a moment…you know, a moment when all seemed to go awry and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. So to combat that feeling of despair, I sat down and started writing out first, what thankfulness is and second what I am thankful for. I thought I would share it with you:
Grateful heart. Peaceful. Blessed. Unmerited favor. Unconditionally loved. Optimistic.
Thankful for the Savior. For Almighty God. For the indwelling Holy Spirit.
For freedom to worship.
For amazing grace. For a pursuing Father in heaven.
For the opportunity to pray. For the God of higher thoughts and ways.
For the Body of Christ.
For community and fellowship of believers.
For a family who knows the Trinity.
For the love of a husband.
For the love of believing parents.
For the love of children.
For deep friendships.
For provision and shelter. For all the little creature comforts.
For the gift of music.
For the ability to work.
For the indescribable beauty of creation.
For the intricate workings of the human body.
For being of sure of what I hope for and certain of what I do not see.
“…give thanks in all circumstances…” –1 Thessalonians 5:18
