I was in the middle of writing on this same subject when this piece popped up in my feed. I put the pen down, because it cannot be said better than this.
As we heed into the week of Thanksgiving, this is an absolute must read!
“I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss.
Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness.
– Lamentations 3:20-23
I’ve always wished that my life was perfect, pain-free, and easy.
But that’s never guaranteed when you are Christian.
God says that the path He calls us to walk is narrow, not wide.
It’s not a path that many people will choose because it’s hard.
It’s a path that leads you through valleys and storms.
It’s a path that includes dying to your own self and being different from the world.
It’s a path where you learn to grow in Christ daily and that doesn’t come without pruning, breaking, and pain.
November is the month everyone likes to make a list of things they are thankful for.
And we always include everything that is good.
The food on our tables and roofs over our heads.
Our families and friends.
The daily gifts God gives us from above.
And those are all things we should always be thankful for.
