This recovering procrastinator rejoices! “Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? Who can declare all His praise?” Psalm 106:1-2
This Thanksgiving I am especially grateful our family will be together and…
That He is the God who redeems!
That He is ever present and present everywhere
That He is majestic and beautiful beyond anything I can grasp
That He is my Father and loves perfectly those I love imperfectly
That I find joy in NOT being in control of many things. What relief! What a privilege to see God work!
That He is my Guide and Helper in those things that are my responsibility
That recognizing the difference in goals and desires is so freeing
That He made us all with such variety in tastes, interests, abilities.
That the blood of Jesus covers me therefore NOTHING can snatch me – or His others – out of His hand
That our amazing God WANTS us to know Him
That His redeeming work has brought us ladies together
That you help me walk more faithfully on this journey out of procrastination into diligence
That you give comments, feedback, emails sharing your thoughts and ideas
That diligence is work, play, or rest in season – not constant work!
That we can give up pursuing perfection and relax in being faithful
That we can promote fruit in our lives but GOD produces it
That in mercy, grace, and patience He lifts us up when we fall and sets us on the path again
That Our Lord uses us as clean available peanut butter jars, nothing fancy required
That habits can facilitate faithfulness and that I can learn new habits
That with ups and downs, goofs, wins and losses, I am learning to walk free! Doing what needs doing when it needs doing, frees me of the burdens heaped on by procrastination
That He has given me a husband, accountability partner, web designer and praying friends who are God’s instruments
That we ladies have each other on this walk to victory! I’m grateful for YOU! God bless you richly!
What special thanks do you have this Thanksgiving?
