Day 957 of Giving Thanks

Hi LORD, thank You for surprises.

"Be still", I hear yet again... and find myself asking the LORD, "What does that mean for me right now?" Anyone else do this? This has been my internal conversation over the past few days. As I contemplate many things in my life right now, I am assured of the greatest of things and that is my place in eternity. That right here friends is the ultimate assurance, and if you are like me, you can complicate things with things that surround you. Yep, that is me in a nutshell… I am so grateful that being a work in progress is what He knows me to be, and that with every passing day, with Him, I get better and better; never perfect, but better.

It is my responsibility to allow change, improvements and enhancements – exciting stuff, actually!

Today, like any other day? Well, maybe, maybe not. It has been a good day - a really, really good day to continue trusting the plan; His plan. It really is time to settle in to trusting Him.

"But I trust in you, O Lord; I Say, You are my God. My times are in your hands; deliver from my enemies and those that pursue me." ~Psalm 31: 14-15 (New International Version)

How about you? Have you "settled in" to trusting Him yet? 

In times of trial, look up and allow Him to lift you… In times of triumph, remember who put you there. Let me share some thoughts that came during a prayer time last week, “Don't undersell your accomplishments, no matter how minimal or unimportant they seem. Whatever your job, do it well. Whatever your job, give it your all. Whatever your job, make sure you are working for Him”. And, if you forget any of this, remember this…

“Come to me, all you who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (Common English Bible)
