Thankful Thursday Sept. 30, 2010
Today I am thankful that even though blogger messes with my mind I know that my God is in control and that he supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory.
Last night I sent an email to a sweet sister that I met through WFW yesterday. She is struggling with a few things right now and I wanted to encourage her. One of the things I shared with her was that this has been the absolute hardest year of my life. It has taken every ounce of strength that I could beg our Savior to provide. It has taken every word that the Holy Spirit could speak for me because there have been times that I have been so spiritually confused that I had no idea how to pray. There have been times that I have wondered things that I feel guilty to even speak or write here. And, I won't because here what I desire to write is only words of encouragement. It has taken every ounce of strength I could muster not to write out the pain I have felt for the last 8 and 1/2 months.
But today I am here to tell you that God is good and God is faithful. And I believe and trust these words more than ever now . . .
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord,
"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways."
In some ways today I am just as confused as I have been because God is working in our lives and in our ministry. I am joyful and anticipating bountiful Blessings but I am confused because I have no idea what is going to be happening next. I wait. I trust. And I give Thanks for our God supplies. Our God hears. And our God loves.
