Sometimes I can’t really tell where I am; I get all confused. Or I think I’m doing okay, and then realize later I wasn’t. Or vice versa. It’s then that I’m THANKFUL that I have an Anointed Advocate, Mediator, and High Priest, Refining and Purifying me.
I know I was born a sinner, and am still not without sin. It is a problem. I beat myself up every day for the things I said (or didn’t say) yesterday–or did (or didn’t do) yesterday. But the Friend of Sinners, the Deliverer, paid my Ransom and Authored my faith; and this Carpenter will Finish it; for which I am THANKFUL.
Whenever I feel spiritually weak (which is often), mentally inadequate (sometimes, for sure!), and physically tired (frequently), I am THANKFUL He is my Provider and Refuge, the Physician, the Prince of Peace, and the Bread of Life.
This world spins faster than I can keep up; and it seems to be spinning downward. Frankly, sometimes I feel very afraid. But I am so THANKFUL that the Rock, the Light of the Word, my Bridegroom—is my Comforter, Helper, and Coming King.
Speaking of spinning, sometimes I do that. I twirl around, going nowhere. It’s a vicious circle! I’m so THANKFUL for the Wonderful Counselor, Shepherd, Master, and Teacher—to Guide my Way into His Truth.
I feel lonely sometimes. Even in a crowded room. Feeling misunderstood is epidemic these days. But I know—personally—the Lord of Love, the Word of God, for whom I am THANKFUL.
He is Jehovah GOD, the Almighty, the Lord of Lords, the Creator, the Everlasting Father; I am THANKFUL for the Faithful and True Witness, JESUS, the Beginning and the End, the Amen.
A BLESSED THANKSGIVING. Thank YOU for reading. —-Love! Laura
