We get so caught up in everything that’s going on in our tiny corner of the world we tend to lose sight of what’s really important and forget to take that moment to be still and know God. We fail to realize how awesome our God is, and how blessed we really are.
For instance, my fresh little niece pushed all of my buttons this morning as only a five year old can and I really, really wanted to strangle her but I couldn’t, so I just sucked it up and forced myself to behave like a grownup. When I got back from taking her and my daughter to school, I was still in a foul mood, mumbling to myself about how people should teach their children basic things like respect.
After I poured a strong cup of coffee, I stopped by Grow Where You’re Planted to check out the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. And I am so glad I did. Because as soon as I started thinking of all that I am thankful for, the devil and his foul mood left. That list is way too long to put here. There is so much that I’m thankful for.
I’m just going to say Thank You! Thank You! Thank You Father in the name of, and for Jesus Christ! Amen.
Have you thanked God today?
