Giving thanks

This year has been a rough one.  Especially the last few months or so. The flood and the subsequent ongoing repairs have turned my day-to-day life on its head.  And the death of Todd’s boss’s family have rocked my sheltered little world.

This year has also been full of reasons to be thankful.  I am so thankful for God’s sustaining grace throughout the last few months.  He has carried us through so much chaos and uncertainty. He has brought to my remembrance that whatever happens, He is sovereign.  He is in control, and He is good and just and wise and loving.

We are still living with a lot of uncertainty right now.  I certainly don’t enjoy it. (And often complain about it.) But I am trying to make the choice to be thankful for it as it draws me closer to God, into a deeper dependence on Him.  I still pray for answers, especially for a resolution to all of the uncertainty surrounding Todd’s job.  But for now, I am learning to trust God’s timing and rest in His assurances that He cares for us and will provide for us.
