(Day 2) Being Thankful

Today started like a typical Monday. I read my Bible, prayed and then had a conversation with my accountability partner. Shortly thereafter I got some news that caused an initial panic in me but quickly turned around as I had already been prepared with my morning Bible reading.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.” Jeremiah 17:7 ESV

stress-391657_1280I was talking to my daughter when I got the news and relayed it to my daughter who said, “What are you going to do?”. My response was quick as I shouted, “Thank You Jesus”, then proceeded to read the above verse to her. I share this with you today because for me this is something to be thankful for as I am not always so calm when it comes to stressful situations. My daughter noticed the difference in me right away. I noticed it right away as well. The Lord has been teaching me so much this year so if this was a test, I think I may have passed it. Although the true test will be in maintaining my peace and trust in the Lord.

Another thing to be thankful for is that I managed to follow the majority of my goals today. I ate 3 servings of vegetables and 3 servings of fruit and drank my 4 liters of water. While I did not do any exercise today, I am perfectly content with that as I will use today as a rest day. I also ate something sweet today so I will be sure not to eat any desserts or sweets again until next week.

Overall today was a great day to be thankful in all things, good things, unexpected things, yes…all things. I am looking forward to seeing what tomorrow will bring. I am trusting my unknown future to my known God and I know He is in charge of it all!
