Today I Am Thankful For....... Day 1
Well, life has been throwing some punches lately and I have been struggling to post anything because I don't want to be such a downer all the time. So, lets just say I am struggling right now.
To counteract that I have decided to do Ten Days of "I am Thankful For....". They may be big things, they may be small things. I don't know yet because I don't know what the next 10 days will throw my way.
Today, I am Thankful For God and all that he has created. Thankful for Grace because this mess of a mom sure needs it! Thankful that we have finally found a church home here that we are comfortable in.
Honestly, I have only been saved for about 10 years. We did not go to church when I was a kid. My parents never read us a Bible. We had no religious instruction at all when we were growing up. Of three siblings I am the only Christian.
Some days I feel that I don't measure up to those who have been raised in the church, who say such beautiful prayers. Mine are awkward and not so well worded.
It wasn't long ago that I thought that many Christians were hypocrites. It drew me away from going to church. Then I went to Wayland Baptist Church where we were required to take Bible classes. It may me search and question what my beliefs should be. In the end I realized that my salvation was my responsibility and that I shouldn't allow those detractors to sway me.
I was Baptised in White Pigeon, MI about 10 years ago and it seems like I fall short every day. But, even though I may fall down, I just get back up and try again the next day. Like I said, Grace is a mighty thing to be thankful for.
What about you, what are you thankful for today?
