It’s really the times where we’re alone that God can truly amaze us. As I was sitting in my room working on a school art project, I needed a ruler. I looked over to my pencil holder and surely enough there was my broken-in-two NAYC ruler. It was a simple reminder that I was not alone.
I’m so thankful for moments where God says, “I am here.” When we don’t deserve it, He is there. Always! It’s just the simple things in life that we often take for granted that God can turn it into a moment we cherish. There are bad days, but every day is a day to be thankful for. Each day we shouldn’t forget that we are here to be thankful for His grace and His mercy. You are going to have seasons in your life where you “take the cake.” And that’s great, but what would there be to be thankful for if we didn’t struggle every now and then? Exactly- not much. The every day would become everything all the time. Thanksgiving should be everyday, but between the world and our desires it slips away from us.
“And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
Colossians 3:14-17 KJV
It says in Colossians 3:14-17 KJV that we are called to let his peace fester in our hearts, and to “be ye thankful!” Ladies, it was never about us and our bad days.
Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Don’t let this world change your mind about His perfect will. In time you will learn to be thankful. In His time your chains will begin to crumble and you can be thankful for that season because of where it has brought you to! Thanksgiving is a few days away, but you don’t have to wait to feast with the King. Your supper is waiting for you at the alter. Get your flowy dress out, honey, cause the King is waiting on us to take part in bread with Him. God bless you and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
