The words in that title captured me. A dare to live fully right where you are?
Where I am right now is not where I want to continue to be.
But if God is in control, He knows all the details about where I am right now. Everything that happens to me as a child of God has been filtered through His fingers of love. I've written countless times about how I long to praise Him in the midst of the storm. And I do want to learn the lessons that are intended for me to learn.
John 10:10 (English Standard Version):
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.I want to live the abundant life in Christ each and every day. That begins with giving thanks. I want to notice the simple things.
So, I decided to take the dare; to live fully right where I am. I'm joining Ann at A Holy Experience and starting my list of 1000 gifts of thanks.
1. Learning to live a more simple life.
7. A friend to carpool with to work. So thankful for this opportunity to get to know Tara. The trip goes so fast as we share and laugh with one another.
8. New opportunities to view my life through the lens of thankfulness. And I don't have to wait for Thankful Thursday. I can now fill my journal daily with simple everyday things.
Blessings and love,
