A friend of mine says the word chooses you. So it seems.
Last year it was WAIT and wait I did. I waited for that year to be over! It was truly a year of waiting. A year of trusting (although, I don't know how good I was at that). A year of surrendering (most of the time not without a fight). A tremendous year of growth and survival. It was a year that at the end, you say something like, "I waited it out and I lived to tell about it!"
Being thankful, having a heart of gratitude - it's in ALL circumstances. Not just when the sky is blue. Not just when life is going your way.
So, this life? This full life I'm to LIVE because of my faith in Jesus? I can't have it without an obedient life of gratitude.
To LIVE is to be THANKFUL.
