Thankful Thursday

Life has been a little hectic so I haven't posted in a while but I am back! This is another Thankful Thursday and there is so much in my life that I am thankful for today.

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

I am thankful today that I can place my life in God's hands and confidently trust Him to complete His will in my life wherever that may lead.

I am thankful today that I don't have to lean on my own understanding in situations and circumstances that just don't make sense. God will take care of it if I choose to release it to Him.

I am thankful today for incredible flavored coffee.

I am thankful today for the convicting power of God to guide me in the proper direction when my life doesn't always reflect His example.

I am thankful today for my wonderful family and the opportunity to live my life as a pastor's wife.

I am thankful today for the many blessings God has placed in my life.

I am thankful today for the church we have pastored for nine years. We have a very loving congregation. They are a blessing to our family.

I am thankful today for the beautiful flowers in my yard and the swing on my patio.

And I am thankful today for God's incredible peace that is always present in the midst of life's storms.
