Thankful Thursday

The past two weeks my life has been so incredibly busy. I honestly feel like the hamster running full speed on his treadmill!! I am so thankful today that even in all of our busyness God is still there when we call upon His name. Life tends to throw a curve ball every now and then but our God is constant. Never changing. The same yesterday, today and forever.

I am thankful today for good health. I see so many people around me struggle with ongoing pain and suffering.

I am thankful for friends and family. Where would we be without the encouragement of friends and the loving hugs of those who truly believe in us? They encourage us to get one step closer to our dreams.

I am thankful for what God is doing in my ministry during this season of my life. We often become anxious to try to force God's hand regarding His plans for our lives. I am thankful that He loves us and cares enough about us to take care of us in all situations. I totally trust Him with my life and future. His will is not my will. Even when we become impatient and sometimes act like spoiled children God knows what is best for us.

I am thankful for the wonderful women in my mentoring groups. They are truly a blessing!

And I am thankful for the opportunity to minister to a wonderful group of pastor's wives in the PennDel District last weekend at their annual retreat.  It was an amazing time!  God is so good!!
