A Month of Thanks: Day 23 & 24

Psalm 100:3-5 "Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations."

1. I'm thankful for the encouragement of others. My friend Jessica sent me a wonderful post from the other day. I loved these quotes from the article "He used the struggles, the waiting and all the ups and downs to deepen our trust in Him!...During struggles, we often that we think we are at the “end” of the story, when we are simply in the middle. (Remember Joseph when he was falsely accused and put into prison? God wasn’t done writing his story…) Every challenge, struggle, and uncertainty can be used to point us back to Jesus. Faith is not faith unless it is tested. Today, I encourage you to meditate upon God’s unchanging faithfulness and be remember that those who hope in Him will NOT be ashamed! (Psalm 25:3)" Wow! That was exactly what I needed to hear when she sent me the post. God isn't done writing our story. When things seem extra hard, that is when I have to press in closer to God. He is using all of this to draw my heart closer to Him. 

2. I'm thankful for a short week of school!! We are all excited for a four day break!

3. I'm thankful that warmer weather is coming the next few days. It will melt all of this snow!!

4. I'm thankful for a warm house, cozy socks, and hot chocolate on really cold days!
