Thanksgiving was not what we had planned. Originally there were going to be 17 people at our gathering. By the time Thanksgiving rolled around, we were down to 8 and the location of our dinner had changed too. But it was okay. The food was yummy, the company pleasant, and we still had a lot to be thankful for.
In the grand scope of things, I have nothing to complain about. Life is life. The Bible doesn't promise us a rose garden, it just promises us that the Lord will walk through every step of our journey with us if we are completely dedicated to Him. Even if I. like Paul and Silas, were chained to the floor in a Corinthian jail expecting execution, I could still sing and worship God because what I have cannot be stolen from me by pain, suffering, family issues, busted plans, uncertainties concerning the future, or even death. I am not of this world, I'm just in it and as long as I'm here I will share my faith story with whoever will listen because God is good and nothing on this earth can change that!
Because of Him, I have hope and a bright future. When I think of eternity I realize that this life will be no more than a quick blink of an eye compared to the glory we will have with Him. We really tend to take life way too seriously.
Today and always, I am thankful that God has saved me from my sin and has given me a bright future. I can never praise Him enough.
