Thankful for (3days!)

Sooo... This whole daily thing didn't work out (as expected) but not to fear: a solution will be found! (Leaning towards a weekly post if you will.)

Thankful (Saturday): for celebrating accomplishments with friends =)

Thankful (Sunday): for reuniting me with pastor Benjamin. A man that has inspired me to live outside of myself and do it with joy in my heart. Truly a role model, if I've ever met one.

Thankful (Monday): for pre-cold. Thank you Lord for testing my health so that I may be more thankful when I AM healthy!

Thankful for...


Thank you for teaching me forgiveness by pouring it out into my life first.

"My heart been broken, my wounds been open
And I don't know if I can hear I'm sorry being spoken....
We All Need Forgiveness."

Thankful for...

Beautiful days with perfect weather. The picture says it all: thank you, Lord for making such beautiful days that make me stop dead in my tracks in awe of You.

Today I am thankful not only for the strengths that God has given me but also for him pointing out that my weakness is His strength.

Some of us (I'm not always included... Depends in the mood really!) work towards developing our strengths. Strengths including but not limited to physical, intellectual, emotional, support systems, etc. But what about working on our "weaknesses"? Not so much in terms of working on strengthening them but in terms of asking God to be present in them so He can work through us in them.

Today I am thankful for the opportunity to strengthen myself physically.

I was reading earlier a short sermon ( about transparency.

It made me realize how there are aspects of my life that I am very transparent about and a few that I try to hide and guard. What's funny though, is that not only do I fail miserably at hiding it from other people, but I also seem to think God doesn't know about it. I use quite a few defense mechanisms to protect MYSELF and MY feelings and MY image that I don't realize: not only am I not fooling anyone but I'm actually making it HARDER for God to work in my life and through my life.

Today I am thankful for taking a step towards being more transparent.

Being able to worship freely

Today I am grateful because I am able to worship freely; without concern of persecution or hostility. Thank you Lord for blessing us with the opportunity that so many others do not have.
