Just Being Grateful

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Continuing my week of having an attitude of gratitude this Thanksgiving season, I am reminded of people who dread the holiday season. They are so many reasons not to want to "enjoy" this time set aside for family and fellowship. I, too, struggle with loneliness missing my Mom, being away from what I know as home and trying to get settle and strengthened and established here in Kansas. I can choose to be better or bitter, i can wallow in self pity or move forward with the grace of God. I know in my heart that my Mom is okay, she is with Jesus and all is well. I do not have to be anxious for anything, I can grow in grace, still learning and loving God with all my heart.

They say to be careful what you ask for and I know to go boldly before the throne of grace and ask what I need from God, because He wants His children to come to Him. This morning when I came home, I was sore, achy, dull headache. I prayed over my body while i was showering and laid down. God relieved my sinus pressure and took some of the ache out of my bones. I got up for my class, aced my quiz and took an exam I feel good about and now as I prepare for my shift, i am truly thankful for what the Lord has done and I just can't thank him enough!
