Living life has it’s trials.
You know what I am talking about?
The times where everything is just not going RIGHT.
Lately, it’s the constant drip. As I like to say. The little things that just KEEP happening!
- A facet leaking
- tub drain not working
- toilet issues
- dryer not drying
- cars not running
- computer screen not working
- lights burning out constantly
- kindles breaking (like just not turning on anymore)
- weird noise in the car
- ANOTHER bill
- and the list goes on.
Yes, Thanksgiving is coming. We all start to think about all the things we are thankful for…
Up until this point I kept thinking to myself, WHAT ELSE CAN GO WRONG! I mean seriously, WHAT ELSE?!
I KNOW HE provides.
He IS there.
He IS watching.
(He being God)
Life may not be going the way I want, but it’s going the way that is BEST for me. He knows what is best for me. He knows what will mold me into what He wants.
All these little things are so pointless… Yet, it’s through these little things I can see HIS hand.. I am totally thankful beyond compare for that!
How sweet He really is. I can see He is showing my husband that He is listening. I find complete joy in that.
An example: As I handed the kindle that was broken to my husband. It would not turn on for anything. It’s done this before and we fixed it a certain way, well that way wasn’t working this time around. My husband held the kindle and asked the Lord to fix it if He wanted to. I didn’t know he prayed until later. It was a different kind of prayer, one of Lord if it’s in YOUR will to do this, do it, otherwise help us through it. Something I pray often.. Well He decided to fix it, because in the next moment the kindle worked. JUST. LIKE. THAT. In fact, it’s our perfect working one now.
He IS listening. When I cry, when I am frustrated, when life isn’t going my way.. He IS listening. It doesn’t mean I get what I want, but I do get what I need. Most often I get way more then I need.
I do love these glimpses of Him. I love seeing Him show my husband He cares.
There is a song that has really hit me lately. It’s about everything in life being worth it all, once I get to see Jesus face to face.
And it will be, I know it. I can see its worth it when I hear His voice, and when I stand in His presence I will feel joy beyond compare and KNOW it’s ALL been worth it!
He is worth it all.
Petty annoyances are nothing compared to what some go through, and yet even going through those harder things is nothing compared to being with Jesus.
Once I stand before my Savior, Once I look into His eyes.. I will know. He is worth it ALL.
So this Thanksgiving time I am beyond thankful for Jesus, thankful that He is there, and no matter WHAT I’m going through, He IS worth it ALL.
