Thankful Thursday

Sometimes stress really gets us down. It feels as if nothing is going right, and it seems as if no one cares. The good news is that someone does care! That "one" is the Almighty, our Creator, God, the Alpha and Omega, the Lamb, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our Heavenly Father, the Great I AM. In the midst of all the chaos of our lives, going to work, kids going back to school, homework, practices, lessons, duties, committments...
Then... "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10
Take a moment. Be still. Close your eyes. Rest. Listen.
We are blessed. Truly blessed. Our homes, families, churches, schools, neighborhoods, friends, necessities, responsibilities, luxuries, privileges, and freedoms are all gifts from our God who wants us to be happy, who wants a relationship with us, who deserves to be served with a giver's heart. No matter how hectic life gets, we still have so many gifts to be thankful for. Let's give thanks to Him.

Amen. We find our rest in the secret place with Him. Keep our eyes focused on Him and the circumstances of our life become smaller and don't "rule" us. Thanks for sharing. Blessings.

I really need to slow down - a lot. Thank you for sharing, because I need once awhile a little bump in the head that He is in control.

Thank you so much for sharing your heart with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.
