I think it is so important to reflect back on all of the blessing in your life. for some reason it is so easy to count the disappointments, and let downs. but so important to replace these thoughts with thankfulness.
I use thankful Thursday as a way to reflect on the past week and see all the ways I have been blessed and to thank God for continuously providing.
I really got lucky. he lifts me up in prayer, keeps me grounded, laughs at my jokes, holds me when I’m sick, shares in my joys and accomplishments, and whole heartedly loves me.
he is such a blessing to me. the Lord has really been working in our relationship and we have both found new ways to love and support one another. as often as we can, we pray together. this is more important than I ever realized and God is continually strengthening us as couple.
I’ve recently been interviewing for a position for next year to complete my practicum. I got offered both of the positions that I applied for and I am so excited to start my career.
for some crazy, weird, awesome reason I have been filled with contentment lately. I am SO thankful that the lord is bringing me peace and making my heart content. do you ever feel like you pray and pray for something but it never gets answered? it’s frustrating! and that’s how I was starting to feel. I wanted so badly to be content with where I was in my life. but he answered my prayers in more ways than I could ever imagine. it was a reminder to never give up on him because I promise he wont give up on you.
this is just another one of the many pictures from Florida. what a great trip with some pretty special people.
i hope you have a wonderful Thursday. be thankful, even for the little things!
