Sometimes I come to these Monday gratitude posts (or Sunday or whenever they appear!) and wonder how I can relay to you the gratitude in my heart. I wonder how I can continue to look around me and find the smallest things that bring me joy. I wonder how I can fully thank God for every moment.
The truth is, I can’t. I can’t fully explain and put into words how thankful I feel. It’s not cliche, it’s a work God is doing in my heart. I’m so glad He is changing me from the inside out.
I want to continue counting my blessings…these precious gifts, and giving Him praise and glory for the work He does in me and all around me and in this crazy world. He is at work, friends, whether we acknowledge it or not. Isn’t it good to know we aren’t in control??
So very much to be thankful for…
