Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

This virus has really rocked our world.  I think everything that I've learned in these last two years is to live with eternity in mind.  As I battle the temptation to constantly be anxious, complain, and worry I'm learning to be content and trust the Lord through all the unknown.  And boy is it hard.  Who would have thought this very tiny small bug could shut down the world?  Who would have thought how much could be effected by such a thing?  Well God did.  And we can take comfort in knowing that.  He is good through this.  HE has plan through this.  Going through some hard trials this last year has really given me more of the desire to be to be in heaven with Christ and not here, with all the pain and the unknown.  But as I began to slowly heal, and adjust to my new life and my new area this virus came and changed everything again.  And all those fears from years ago came back.  I don't want to lose control.  I don't want life to change like this.  I have so much I want to do still, right?  But God has a plan and changing my thinking is hard and a battle, truly, but it is what the Lord uses to sanctity and grow us in Him.  Who knows how long this will last and how much this will effect everything, but we can ALWAYS trust God and His will.  We know that He does loves us.  We know He is good.  Living it is hard, but letting go and letting God is so much better then living in constant fear and anxiety.  Trusting and giving Him our desires and asking His will be down is better then fighting for our own plans, because in all honesty His plans are better and He knows all things.  He sees things I don't and is working in so many different ways, even know.
