I am thankful for…

I have so many things to be grateful for this Thanksgiving season. My life has been incredibly blessed, so I don’t have trouble being grateful for the obvious goodness in my life on a daily basis. Every day I walk in my office, I thank God for his direction in my life and where He has brought me. Every morning when I wake up, I thank God for my sweet husband stirring next to me.

It’s those things that I’m ungrateful for that I want to learn to be grateful for. Like the trials that stretch me beyond what I thought I could handle. Or the fears that teach me how to overcome and be courageous. It’s in those victories that I see myself grow, but I would never say I’m grateful for them. Their tragic and disruptive to my little bubble of happiness. Yet, it’s all made me who I am. The character traits that have sprung from trials, are what make things easier to handle today. And maybe even what has made me grateful every day.

I’ll leave you with myΒ absolute favorite verse in the Bible. It is short and sweet and is how I want to live my life.

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” –Β 1 Thesalonians 5:16-18

Wishing you the happiest Thanksgiving!
