Still Thankful

thankful for the undeserved grace and love of a savior who continually brings me through life’s seasons when i don’t see a way out and show’s me new ways of trusting him and giving up my control and comfort. also thankful for my family and good friends.

That was my Facebook status on November 24, 2011. God had just brought me out of a short season of of heartache – the same same situation that I find myself in now. While heartfelt and true, that really was a pretty “easy” status to write – considering that my broken heart was put back together and things were great. But you know what the funny thing is? When I stumbled across that post tonight, in whatever circumstance I find myself, I still believe and take comfort in those truths I wrote a year ago. That alone is just another reminder of the love that God has been pouring into me these last few weeks.. The situation hasn’t changed. But He’s been changing me.

James 1:4 is always a great reminder of looking at trails with a greater perspective. It says:

Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

-JPalm
Ephesians 2:8
When I could only see the floor,
You made my window a door,
So when they say they don’t believe,
I hope that they see You in me
