Thankful Thursday

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Col 3:15

It is so easy to take daily life for granted. Just waking up and doing daily chores or going to a job is not even an option for so many people because they are dealing with diseases and illnesses I can't even imagine what it's like to have to deal with everyday. Each morning when I wake up I lay in bed for a few minutes silently talking to God. I have a mental checklist of people that pop into my mind first thing in the morning and I want to make sure I offer up prayers to the great Healer for these friends. I am so thankful that God is Jehovah-Rapha and He promises us that He will heal us.

Even though I'm so focused on my own struggles with infertility, I find it hard sometimes to count my many blessings. Thanks for the post reminding that God hasn't abandoned us, even though sometimes we feel so alone.
