Day 322 of Giving Thanks

The moments of staring at a blank page do not happen often, in fact, the writing here is usually done in about five minutes. If it takes too long, I know it is me, and not God - when it is time to write, it is like running water at the sink.  Today, my mind is reeling, but my body is not – so being still is easy tonight.

As I sit here, with the dishwasher swishing in the background, it is almost hypnotic. The electric breeze from the fan keeping me comfortable, it has not been a comfortable week at all.

Several things went a little haywire over the last week – people with the flu, muscle spasms, internet connection down, broken A/C and very few people to talk to – Yet again God pulled us through to the end with time to spare and over the goal.

It is mind-blowing, when I think about it! In every way of my life – there is purpose. And, in my work, His work is done.  I am grateful that I am in a place where I have such strong faith. Not once did I ever believe we wouldn’t make it. Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness.

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written:
"He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor; his righteousness endures forever." Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” ~2 Corinthians 9:6-12

And, it is true joy to worship and honor such a faithful God.

I love people. My life has been spent seeking new friendships and helping others. God's gifting is being worked out into His plan for me. I am excited to share insights of His leadings and lessons.
