Giving Thanks

open-gateNovember is traditionally the month everyone lists what they’re thankful for. Since I’m not one to do things just because everyone else is, I’m going to close the year by giving thanks each day in December.

This has been a challenging year for me. There have been many overwhelming changes within the church I attend and I’ve been struggling to find peace and balance within my marriage. I believe with all my heart the challenges I’ve faced this year are meant to draw me closer to God.

Within the storm this season of my life has brought, I know there have been, and will continue to be, many blessings. I simply must choose to see them, trusting God is in control of the good, as well as the bad. He is amidst the storm with me offering all I need to get through it, and sometimes the only thing He offers is Himself. I need to accept that and continue moving forward with Him as my shield, because He is all I need.

Psalm 100_4

Please join me, starting tomorrow, as I go through the month of December, describing why I’m thankful for different things in my life. What are you thankful for? Why?

My prayer for us today ~ Father God, thank you for loving us, even when we fail you. I pray we would see You and not the storms around us, Amen.
