As I spent a few quiet moments this morning reflecting on all that I have to be thankful for. I reflected most on one particular thing…I am so thankful that I have always known the Lord. I have no memory of not knowing Him.
There have been times in my life where I have not seen this as a blessing. I wished for a “dramatic” conversion experience…a clearer picture of a life that I had been saved from. But my story is not dramatic…just a simple prayer at five years of age…asking Jesus to come into my heart. And my heart is filled with gratitude for that simple prayer, and for the 30 years I have spent with Him. The Lord is so good…He is so faithful. The words of King David keep running through my head…
“Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my family,
that you have brought me this far”?
I Chronicles 17:16
Today I am so thankful for my family, my friends, my home, a full table…all gifts from my always faithful Savior.
Grateful for my life in Him…
