Thankful Thursday: He Supplies My Needs
It's been a while since I've written a Thankful Thursday post. I've certainly been thankful for much, but as you can see, I haven't posted anything in two weeks.
It's been very busy around here. Busier than I'd like it to be during the summer. And when I'm not busy, I'm just too tired. I'm sure you've been here, right?
As I've reflected upon the things for which I am thankful, I am reminded that despite the busyness of life, and the fatigue of pregnancy and running a large family, God truly supplies all my needs.
*When I am overwhelmed, He reminds me to lean on Him. (Zech. 4:6, Psalm 121:1-2)
*When I am tired, He reminds me to rest and not feel pressured to do more than I can. (Matt. 11:28, Psalm 23:3)
*When I am too busy, He reminds me to focus on what's most important, paring down where I can. (Psalm 46:10, Luke 10:38-42)
*When I am hormonal, He reminds me that it is temporary and that He has faithfully seen me through the ups and downs before. (2 Cor 4:17)
*When I am anxious, He reminds me to trust him in ALL circumstances. (1 Pet. 5:7, Prov. 3:5-6)
*When I am unmotivated, he reminds me that I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. (Phil. 4:13)
These are all feelings and emotions I have been experiencing over the last few weeks. I've been here before. And each time, He grows me a little more. I've learned a lot from being in this season many times. And for this, I am grateful.
In between the busy, the fatigue, the overwhelmed, and the anxious, I've also had much joy.
*I'm thankful for the growth of our sweet baby...and wonderful movement I feel every day.
*I'm thankful that all the kids love on my belly and look forward to this little one's arrival.
*I'm thankful for God's provision of our daily bread, our roof above our heads, and for energy at the very moment I need it.
*I'm thankful for the carefully chosen activities that nurture and benefit our children.
*I'm thankful for a phenomenal husband who takes such good care of me and the children. And who, even now as I write, is upstairs reading to all the kids so that I can have a moment of peace.
*I'm thankful for a house full of children who wear me out and sometimes push me to my limits, but who bring so much joy, laughter, vitality, helping hands, and love beyond measure to our home.
Thank you Father! You are good!

Today I am thankful for my son Joseph, who would have been 11 today. He passed away at 12 days old due to complications from Trisomy 13. There is always something to be thankful for!ReplyDelete
Wonderful thankful list! I, too, am thankful for a house full (literally! with 10 people in 1000 sq ft *wink*) of kids in the same way you are thankful. They wear you out, they push you to your limits, but they DO bring much joy. I can't imagine life without a single one of them.ReplyDelete
