It's Thankful Thursday and Lynn of Spiritually Unequal Marriage is our host for this month. I missed posting last week and realized how important it is for me to write a thankful post.
In the midst of uncertainty, I can easily lose my focus and get caught up in my day to day challenges. I start grumbling and complaining instead of making the choice to be thankful.
It reminds me of the Israelites as Moses was leading them through the wilderness towards the Promised Land. God performed some mighty miracles and yet as soon as they came upon another obstacle, what did they do?
Before I laugh at the absurdity of their complaining, I need to take a look at myself. When life is uncertain, I can easily look back on how life used to be. But God wants me to look forward ...to trust and obey Him every step of the way.
I'm thankful that:
- God is with me.
- God is trustworthy.
- God is sovereign.
- God provides me with His strength.
- God loves me.
- God knows all about my situation.
- God's promises are true.
- God's Word is true.
So, this day I choose to ...trust God.
He is who He says He is.
I believe that and I'm thankful for that.
Happy Thankful Thursday! It's good to be back.
