Giving Thanks



And a third, and a fourth, and a fifth…a request which should be ever on my lips as I recognize my intensely distracted nature, which oft needs a day to refocus and renew my heart to a state of gratitude.  And yet, and yet…Grace says He knows my struggle, and is with me even in those times of pressure, instability, distraction, and need.

Which have been quite frequent over the past months, let me tell you.

But I am still here, eagerly awaiting my twins, reconnecting with my Lord and Savior, coming off the highs of a Hillsong United concert from a week ago, and the bearing the lows of my crosses.  Teaching, learning, writing, working, preparing.

And yet…

I give thanks today for all.  For my friends, my family, for you, and most of all for Jesus.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.  And be thankful – Colossians 3:15
