Day 448 of Giving Thanks

For most, the idea of giving up their burdens would mean change and often, giving up those burdens means giving up many other things – sometimes it is the pain that is held on to – sometimes it is the losses that will never be recovered .

"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." ~Matthew 11:28

This is a person well – this is the person I now can barely recognize in my rearview mirror; this is the same person who, as I look in the mirror today, sees restoration and hope in so many things. “A faithful man will abound with blessings…” ~Proverbs 28:20

I see blessings in giving my burdens to the Lord – I see the times of pain as moments rather than my life – and although I have loss, I am given so much more when I just trust and believe that God is bigger than anything I encounter. “…He who trusts in the Lord will prosper.” ~Proverbs 28: 25

For this journey God, I thank You for getting me here. Although “here” is not what I imagined, I would not change a thing. Through the time from there to here, it has been an amazing journey, one with many surprises and miracles. Now it is only great expectations as I go from here to there.

“I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” ~Isaiah 61:10
