Cushion of thankfulness

Standard

A friend gave me a devotional titled Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. It is striking how each and every day over the past month has been relevant to that day! Today she shares this summary of Jesus’ teaching from Psalm 100:4 and 1 Thessalonians 5:18. “See how many times you can thank Me today, this will awaken your awareness to a multitude of blessings. It will also cushion the impact of trials when they come against you. Practice My presence by practicing a discipline of thankfulness.”

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
