Some Ramblings of the Heart…
Ephesians 5:20 “Giving thanks always for ALL things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”
Abby and I finished a Bible study that I titled “Attitude of Gratitude.” We finished the study, but we hope as a family we will hold each other accountable. Like when complaining the difficulty of having the sun shine in ones eyes, one pipes up to say that at least we SEE the sun at 7:30!! Come winter it will be dark at 4!!
Abby and I both realized during this study we needed to change…we also realized that always being thankful for ALL things is a verse that we will have to wrap our mind and heart around EVERY day.
There is always much for which to be thankful, but to be thankful for ALL things? It isn’t too much for our Lord to ask, but without him it’s a task I realize I can’t fulfill. Thankful for a week of rain? Thankful for Dystonia? Thankful for being so far away from my parents? YES!
- Come summer a cool rainy day will sound nice
- My Dystonia has brought many wonderful people into my life. This includes my dear Hubby and my daughter!
- I live in my Daddy’s hometown so I get to see my wonderful parents ever year for several weeks.
Frequently, it’s our perspective that needs a change!
Just one verse in the Bible, yet I can’t perform this one without God’s help. How weak our flesh is, and how strong is God’s mercy and grace towards us. Always be Thankful!!
I wrote this a year ago, but I needed the reminder so I decided to add it to the blog. I hope it is a blessing. 💗
