Thankful Thursday

“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are things that happen.....that trip me up....that sometimes leave me feeling...'what's the use.' But then eventually something in me comes back fighting...It's always been that way.  And b/c of that fight...that determination....I've accomplished things I never thought I could. 

There's an issue with the printer. At first I got down....the problem seemed  insurmountable. But this morning.....I woke up thinking.. it's only a glitch....something else to overcome. And I will. 

I have a dream....to give hope to others...to show His awesomeness....that with Him nothing is impossible to overcome. And I've figured out...even in hard times.....He's there turning things around for good. I'm pumped. Problems are minor things that try to prevent me from living my best. Wont' happen.This week thankful for.....

-Glitches...the issues with the printer....I know He's on the scene and totally in control. 
-Faith....without it I have nothing. With it.....I can scale mountains...
-Faith....it's the thing that makes me want to try one more time.
-Faith...knowing that everything is coming together for good. 
-Mostly that He's got my back....and I already have so much proof of things He turned around in my favour. I know He'll do it again and again and again.

If you have faith the size of a mustard seed - that doesn't seem very big does it - but some times...

Faith in God is certainly what gets me through the hard places. Life is hard and my rose garden isn't always in bloom. So it's times like these that faith is what I stand on. Glad you have learned that too. You're such an encouragement! Enjoy your weekend, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Yes...if He did it before, He'll do it again! Nothing is impossible for Him! Sister, it must be REALLY good for even the printer to go down!
Hold on tight to your Faith and Trust in the LORD to come through - He will!
Love ya,
Jul

How true!
Without faith in Him we are nothing. The stronger our faith in God is, the better things will work for us.

Love this inspiration Sarah; how comforting to know that we can just sit back and wait for God to handle things for us! Faith is the victory in overcoming anxiety; we can go to sleep at night and wake up without a single burden because we know our burdens are on His shoulders. :)

Blessings and hugs friend!

I can relate to this post so much especially the feeling what is the use and then fighting back. I'm thinking so it's not just me then. Blessings.
