. thankful .

. i have to admit that thankfulness is not the main emotion/feeling i've been having lately as the thanksgiving holiday approaches . i think about all i have, all those that love me, and i know i have the most important 'thing' -Christ in my life . so how in the world can i feel ungrateful ? i've even been to africa and seen parents and children alike who had little to no food, only the clothing on their backs and no hope for their future . once again, how can i feel ungrateful ? i've taken some time to dig through my feelings and deal with them...the only way that i feel we as humans in a sinful world can deal properly, and that is through His words .

. there are so many things pulling me away daily from remaining focused on Him and i feel this is why i've been feeling so ungrateful lately . i've let things get me sidetracked, and let me just say they are not necessarily bad things, or bad desires, but they have me sidetracked none the less . i've become unsatisfied . and truly when we have Him there's no reason to be unsatisfied . things of this world will never satisfy . that is so easy to forget when i don't stay focused .

. thanksgiving and joy go hand in hand because if you think of it when we are thankful we will become joyful . i quote david's prayer in psalm 51, 'restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit . this entire psalm is my prayer .

. i'm thankful for where God has placed me and am determined to be what He wants me to be where. i. am.

. i am thankful for HIM .
