This is the day that the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm

scene-3-cup

Today I am thankful for:

  • puppies who snuggle in my lap on cold days
  • a supportive husband
  • peach yogurt
  • my continuing weight loss
  • Jesus who chose me to die for, who continues to choose me to love no matter what (Jesus who choses you to die for, who continues to choose you to love no matter what)

What are you glad about today?

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;they shall mount up with the wings as eagles; and they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint Isaiah 40:31


But they that wait……

Waiting can be a very hard thing to do.  Especially in our Western be independent, doing, busy society.

And yet the promise say if we wait upon the Lord shall…

…………. renew their strength

…………….. mount up with the wings as eagles;

………………….. run and not be weary

…………………………..walk and not faint

The thing that strikes me today about this verse:

I have alway heard the focus on this verse as on the mount up with wings as eagles.  I wait on the Lord, my strength will be renewed and I will be able to fly above my problems.

And that is not entire verse – I see today it is more like:

I wait on the Lord, my strength will be renewed

And Lord may hold my hand and then where  I will be able to fly above my problems.

OR

And Lord may hold my hand where I run through the problem and not get tired (not want to just give up or quit)

OR

And Lord may hold my hand while I walk through the problem and with his strength I can keep on keeping on.

And maybe  the important  thing to Abba Father is that you and I are learning as we wait and hold His hand, He will get us through.

Today I am grateful for: small successes, the beautiful day on a Tennessee hillside, seeing my two while puppies run up and down the hill, seeing a chickadee feeding in the birdhouse this morning, my daughter’s  hearty laughter.

What are you grateful for today?

In beginning…

Today I am grateful for:

  • Faith that reminds me that the Father knows the plans He has for me and you – plans to prosper me and not to harm you and me, plans to give us a hope and a future. Jer 29:11
    • Raining days It makes the days with blue skies and puffy white clouds that much more special.
      • Cardinals in the tree outside my window
        • My husband He is there for me even in the midst of his grief and he celebrates such different things than I do.
          • My daughter Her unconditional acceptance of the people in her life is incredible and she has the courage to call me on my stuff.
