Giving Thanks

23 Nov



Such a small yet powerful word. Trust was my word of the year and appropriately so as certain unexpected things entered my life this year, prompting me to trust. Sometimes I succeeded. Other times I failed. But either way, God was there.

Though I strive to have a spirit of thankfulness year-round, the holidays seem to make me extra conscious of my blessings. This year, aside from my salvation, family, friends, and health, I’m thankful for God’s provisions. For strength during times when I don’t have any. For His mercies that renew every morning. For His faithfulness. All of which have gotten me through my Mt. Everest of trials and tribulations this year and taught me how to trust.

Thank you, Lord, for being You.

    That’s a great word for the year. Trusting is scary–until we remember Who we’re trusting!

    Trusting is harder than being thankful, since it usually comes first. But it makes the thankful part so much more meaningful if you know Who you’re trusting.
