Thankful Thursday


I feel like dancing on days like this.  Thankful Thursday is one of my favorite days of the week.  It's the day I can sit and reflect on the week so far and find the little things I may have missed to be thankful for.  This week I had no trouble seeing what God had done for me.

In the last few months, I have been putting all my trust in God.  I have been so much less stressed!  The last few months could have been totally different for me if I hadn't relied on God and all his love.  I know he has a plan and will take care of me and my family. 

The floor fell from our feet a few days ago.  What we thought was the plan God had for us and the best thing for my Husband's musical carrier fell through with in minutes.  It didn't take long to realize what we had prepared ourselves for was gone.  We had no idea what to do.  We had so much riding on this plan.  But God knows what to do.  I leaned back and put it back in his hands.  He loves us and knows what we need.

As soon as I handed it all over to him, things became better.  I am so thankful He has a plan for me and He loves me and will take care of me and my family!  Now all I have to do is wait and see what happens from here.  This hurt us a lot.  My Husband especially, but God will take care of us.  This I am sure of.

What are you thankful for this week?  You can visit Iris at Grace Alone to see what everyone else is thankful for today.


  1. Praying for you sweet one. Keep dancing, God will always willingly provide the music.

  2. AMEN....learning that I don't need to trust in "me doing everything right" and just trusting Him has been a gift. Just abiding every day is my goal...going with His flow. But it is an interesting thing...we press in to seek Him, we step out in action yet must be chill about what comes or not...waiting in peace. Hmmmm...praying He has His way in your lives.

  3. Amen! He knows so much more than we could ever think! :) Thank you for posting!

  4. Sometimes I think exactly what you wrote today is what life is really all about... the floor falling out from under us. Following Christ is the most rewarding, awesome, fulfilling, beyond comprehension but always surprising as He Reaching into our hearts and tenderly guides us to His Life Abundantly. I love it. He is forever my hero...! i really enjoyed your post. God Bless.
