so, this leads me into thankfulness. i thank the Lord for my current situations (instability, missing answers, missing questions, uncertainties, etc) and He reminds me of the grace He gives and the complete control He has of my situation. what have you given praises for? what is the Lord revealing in you in this season of your life? how is this tearing you down and humbling you? have you witnessed the hope that is there with sacrifice? if not, what are you waiting for?
i am always reminded of life when i visit my residents ( i know you're thinking, but they're 80+ years old!). true, but as i visited two of my favorites tonight...helping them pick out their pajamas and turn on the rangers game, i thought to myself how life looks so different for us...yet we all have the chance to live it. i am so amazed at how different the times were in the 30s and 40s compared to now....yet people remain people. all i can think of is what my life represents, and most importantly why would i even consider living it on my own or for my own good....
i'm going to think on that for awhile.
have a blessed night, friends. :)
