I was in the shower, in full worship mode. For some reason, when I am near water, something rises in my spirit and makes me feel alive. Anyways..I was singing. Just two words over and over. Thank you.
The more and more I walk in this life, the more thankful I become. I had nothing in the beginning of the year. I was jobless, penniless, friend-less. I was trying to save money when I had very little. I sacrificed even more than I had. I’m not saying this to brag. I’m just letting you know I was in a bad place. And I had given up on hope and on myself. And that lack of hope…if I can be frank…was seeping into my relationship with God. Little did I know, God was working behind the scenes.
Behind the scenes of my heartbreak. BUT….came forth a vision. A vision to start writing again. To write a book. To work at a hospital. To help the lost and brokenhearted.
And for that…I am truly thankful. He had turned everything around in due time. I am thankful for the new experiences. The new journeys. The new church I will find. The new people I will meet at my job. The new. I am thankful for the new. I am thankful for His grace. I am thankful for His provision. I am thankful for the gift of salvation. I am thankful to have hands, arms, legs, feet. I am thankful that I have a voice, to be heard and used for His glory. I am thankful that I didn’t get the things I thought I wanted. I am thankful for the adventures I have with Jesus. Knowing Him is the best adventure you will ever experience.
You could climb the highest mountain and yet nothing could compare to holy ground. When I spend time with Him, I feel like I can fly. I feel like I am fearless. I feel like I will always be in His shadow of protection, His mighty wings. I feel like I am seeing more beauty in Him. Seeing Him in different ways. He is the best friend I’ve ever had. He is my King and I long to please Him.
I used to envy people when they had relationships with each other because I’ve never had one. But…I will say this. If people knew what I have with God, they would envy my relationship. And they should. Everyone should know God the way I know Him. That does sound boastful, but it is true.
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him
