This morning was the first time in months that I was able to just be lazy. Can I get an AMEN. So upon waking up ridiculously late, I made some breakfast and coffee, sat down and had some much needed QUIET time with Jesus. Notice the capitalized quiet?? Like so many others, my life is a series fast paced events that leave little time to just be still. (seriously…today is the first time to clean my apartment in a while…)
So I woke up and decided to eat a grapefruit and be thankful. This led me to Psalm 139. David gives such a raw and intimate view into his heart. He recognizes that he is, because God made him to be. This always so amazing to me. God MADE me, He MADE you, He MADE everything. We are the product of the ultimate Creator! Not only did He make us, He loves us with such a fierce love that we can never match or deserve. This is a reason to be excited and staying on holiday topic, thankful.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” Psalm 139:14
My heart is so full knowing that God cares about every single thing about me. He made me unique and creative and gave me a personality that is different than anyone on earth. He gave me gifts and a passion to use them. He has given me a network of fantastic, beautiful people that I am beyond blessed to be able to call friends. I could go on and on about what I am thankful for, but don’t worry I’ll stop. J
What is important to understand, is that it is unfortunately just as easy to be ungrateful. It is entirely consistent to your attitude.
So those are some of my thoughts on this lovely morning before Thanksgiving.
I encourage you all to start living a life of thankfulness! Even tomorrow if you are dealing with burned food or crazy family!
Have a blessed holiday!
