Today I am thankful.
I’m thankful for God’s constant faithfulness. I’m thankful that he always knows better than me, and that I can trust him with my entire life. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if I follow where he leads, it will be far better than what I could plan for myself.
I’m thankful for his financial provision for my family. I’m thankful for our safe, warm and beautiful home. I’m thankful that we have enough, plus a little extra. I’m thankful to know that no matter what our financial state in different stages of our future, I will always be able to trust God to keep our family in his hands no matter the circumstances.
I am thankful for the miracle of life; of the awe that God stuck in my heart while he created a human being inside my body. I am thankful for doctors who were able to keep us safe during delivery, and that I have a healthy baby who is alive and well.
I am thankful for family. I’m thankful for grandparents and great-grandparents who pass their wisdom on, who give to us endlessly and love us with no bounds. I’m thankful for our parents and siblings and the lifelong bond we have with each other. I’m thankful for the nieces and nephews that continually enter our family, and I’m thrilled for the many new lives to come.
More than anything, I am overwhelmed with joy for the family God has given me. For the joy of marriage and sharing life with the one I love. I never could have imagined how passionately I could love another human until my husband and son became my own precious family. I’m thankful for the lessons God has taught me through being a wife and a mother. I’m thankful for the responsibility God has given me in raising my son to be a godly man.
I’m thankful that no matter where our life goes, I will always be able to look back and point out God’s faithfulness in my life and know that he can be trusted in all things.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
