For the next thirty days I am going to highlight something for which I am thankful. Too many days go by where I forget to even acknowledge that which I am so blessed to have. I rarely live in the reality that 99% of the world lives on less than what I have. I spend too much time focusing on that material things in life, which will all pass, and not enought on those things that God says are eternal.
"Life isn't about learning to weather the storms; it's about learning to dance in the rain."
Today I am thankful for:
The storms in my life
Looking back over the difficult seasons in my life brings me joy. Why? Because I know God ordained them to make me more like Him. I am thankful that I've not only weathered them, but I've learned from them, and become better person. With each trail I go through, I am becoming a person who reflects God's image a little more clearly. No, life is not about getting through the storm. It is learning to dance when it pours.
