In the worst of days, in the barest of times, when all seems dark, there is always something that we can be thankful for, to lift up our hearts and thank God for our life. For our past that has made us who we are today -- for those who love us, and for those whom we love.
It can be hard when drowning to fight for the surface to get a breath of air -- that is what being thankful can be for most of us at times. It can be a matter of life or death. People die, kill themselves, when they stop fighting to reach the surface and breathe, to step back and be thankful.
The way of healing and of growth, of trust and faith can be the most difficult path of all, yet it leads to deeper life and trust in the love God has for all of us.
The Stronger Way
Trust no matter what,
that takes strength,
despair while painful is easier by far.
It is the stronger way, to hope,
The of death to an old way of life that we are called to walk....
to new life, so breath over and over again,
allow thankfulness to fill you soul and Glorify the Lord.
What in your life do you need to be thankful for? What do you need to trust God with? When has thankfulness been like taking a deep breath?
