There is so much going on in my life right now. It may seem like to the outsider, there is nothing new. But, I just really am aware of a difference. So, how does this translate into being "thankful"?
Good question. I'm not sure really. I just feel a stirring and I'm thankful. I have been feeling sort of "blah" and "ho hum", like I am just biding my time and making it through until the next thing comes along. Sort of like eating my veggies just so I can get my dessert!
I have felt like I'm stuck in the veggie stage! That explains it exactly! Not really enjoying what I'm doing, but doing it anyway because I know something else is coming down the pike.
So... I am thankful. God is moving. He is calling me forth and up and imparting something inside me. The dessert is on the way!
You probably would not be able to tell just by looking at me (unless you think that I'm getting a little "fluffier" - and THAT is certainly not what I want nor am I talking about). The change is so subtle, so slow, so seemingly insignificant. But, it is there. I know it is. Next year at this time, I will look back and realize that this is just the beginning of something BIG and God is doing it. You will be able to see the dessert and it WON'T be on my hips!
What do you feel is different about your life? I know it is happening all over! God is moving! Get ready for your dessert! Aren't you thankful???
