Gratituesday

There are so many things I have to be thankful for these days. Of course, there are the "stock" answers. I am thankful that my family is healthy, that I have 2 beautiful children and a wonderful husband. I am so very thankful that God has allowed me in this season of life to stay at home with my kids, to be able to watch them change day by day, to be able to teach them and watch them respond.

But today, what I am most thankful for is the faithfulness of God...even we aren't faithful to Him. As you know if you've been reading for a while, we've had a few trials recently. We joked about them and joked about exulting God through them, but there were times when we were totally and completely overwhelmed. When we could not see the light at the end of the tunnel. When we thought if one more thing goes wrong, I'll lose it...and then something else went wrong. I have no doubt that we truly believed that God would see us through. But I, in my sinful human nature, was constantly trying to figure out a "Plan B". You know, just in case the one and only Omnipotent, Sovereign God didn't come through for us.

But He did.Just as He always has. Just as He always will. And I am once again humbled in His Glory. And amazed that He continues to be patient with me. And oh so thankful for His faithfulness to me.

  1. Great post. God is so faithful, always. If only I could always remember that first and foremost during times of struggle too.
