Thankful Thursday


It's Thankful Thursday once again and this week I will only have one here but that doesn't mean God didn't bless us enough this week, It's just that I am so much grateful for this and wanted to write it down;

My dear husband has resigned from being a full time worker in our church, he worked there for almost 9 years and He felt, we felt it's time to move on. Resigning though doesn't mean he stopped serving the Lord but it only means new beginnings, new hope, new opportunities. He is now doing volunteer work in International Teams Philippines ( a mission organization) and we hope this small step will lead us to where God wants us to be.

But it is not easy, moving out of your comfort zone is not always easy, changing direction is not easy, making tough decision is not easy and I know hubby is going through some tough time, adjusting and making plans and thinking of what to do. But God is so good and I believe He has great plans for us and we hold on to His promise to us in Psalm 32:8

" I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you"

There are times that we still feel lost..do not know what to do next or where to go..but Praise God for always leading us. We still do not know where we will be ten years from now but we are assured that God will still be with us 1o years from now and that we are going there together as husband and wife and possibly with kids.

I thank God for conviction, for that nudging of the Holy Spirit to always go back to the Lord whenever we feel at lost. I am thankful for His WORD that enlightened, encouraged us to go on in serving Him.

What are you thankful for this week? Please do share it and link to Lynn of Spiritually unequal marriage.

Have a blessed Thursday everyone!!

I think there must be a special blessing for those brave enough to step out of their comfort zone to follow God. Not many will do it. Most of us are creatures of habit. God bless you for going down the path less taken. May you find those souls who wouldn't have been reached otherwise and may you find treasure and blessings.
