What I’m thankful for today:
“All things work together for good to them that love GOD.”
Sometimes I don’t understand this and sometimes it is a little hard to swallow the idea that “all things” can be turned into something beautiful and good when I’m in the middle of something hard.
It takes faith, a lot of faith sometimes, to trust that every single thing that seems so devastating and sometimes so needless is something that God can and will turn into something good someday.
Satan might do what he can to destroy us and our confidence in God, but I believe… I know that if we can keep holding on, and trusting that God will work all things with out exception that are beyond our control for His good, our good, and for the best, that Satan’s plans are thwarted.
I’m thankful for the thorns as well as the roses.
And today, by His grace I’m choosing to be thankful for all these things in my life right now. Even the ones that I truly cannot understand. And to me, this gift is one of the greatest things God is doing each day in my life.
