Thankful Thursday



“Giving up doesn't always mean your weak sometimes you’re just strong enough to let go” Taylor Swift

Letting go of something is sometimes the best thing to do. And maybe the only thing. It could be an incredible strategy....letting go when the fight is consuming time...energy...and focus. And with that letting go...trusting that He's got everything under control. 

This week grateful for.....

-lessons learned the hard way. Sometimes I realize it's the only way I really get something. 
-the power of faith.....even in the down and hard stuff.....there are things I've discovered that brighten my world...jewels found (jew friendships) that are worth keeping.....
- the will to hold on and fight for what I believe.....and the wisdom to know when it's time to let go and let Him take it the rest of the way. 
-joy. It's wild. I wake up with it....There's often no other reason than that it's another day to live this amazing life I've been given. 
-God....He makes it all an awesome incredible journey. Even when I get down I can't stay down. It's like being in the dead sea....you can't drown. The salt makes you float. He makes me float when I don't know what to do. He carries me....sustains me.....It's the best feeling ever.

Hi Nikki,
I love what you said about even when you're down, you can't stay down because joy won't let you! I feel exactly the same way.
Life for me this past year has been hard and filled with trials but His joy sustains me and keeps me afloat. So thankful I belong to Him. Have a blessed day, my friend.

Blessings & hugs,
Sandi

Reminds me of that saying, "If you love something, let it go. If it's yours, it will come back to you. If it doesn't, it never was!" Not an exact quote!

This whole journey with Him is amazing..He's with us even when we push against the grain..struggling to make things happen, then after wearing ourselves out it occurs to us..Maybe God has a different way..so we wait...and seek and that's what He wanted in the first place...and He smiles, and says I got this child...I love that! Then He says...watch this, and does something so Amazing...we can't even put words to it...But we know, and we smile :) or cry cuz it touches us that He knows us so well! That's our God!! He reigns!
Love ya
Jul
