January 11, 2013

Good morning all-

I'm sorry that I haven't written in a few days and probably won't write much today.  It seems I caught the flu, not fun.  Anyway, I left yesterday morning for work at 4 am and got home with the intention to write when  my husband looked at me and said, "You better go to bed."  You know one of two things when they say that, you sound horrible or you look horrible.  So, I did and woke up coughing until I thought my lungs would explode.  Yuk!

But here I am preparing to go to work and all I could think about was thanking God for everything in my life, especially for Delsym, which keeps the cough at bay.  No one likes to be sick but when you are it's wonderful to have the tools to move through it.  That's what made me think about giving thanks to God at 2 am.  I'm very blessed.  I live in a place where I can still get great healthcare, at least for now.  I have all the tools to get medicines over the counter and I live in good conditions where I can rest.  I am blessed.

That thought went through my mind so much yesterday.  I am so lucky to be in God's presence, to live in a place that is secure and to know that in a few days time this flu will pass and I can stand and thank Jesus!  I'm not a good sick person and I typically will try to work through it but I am realizing more and more that I must thank God in every circumstance good or bad.  It hasn't come easily and I don't know if I always get it right but for today, I stand on faith that Jesus knows right where I am and I must thank Him for everything, even my illness.

I am not full of many words today.  My head feels like it's going to burst, so I leave you today with Scripture and wish you a blessed day.

1 Thessalonians 1:2 NKJV:

     We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers.

1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV:

     But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 35:18 NKJV:

     I will give You thanks in the great assembly.  I will praise You among many people.

Write your prayer today and if you feel like it comment on this blog with a prayer.  Give thanks to our Lord and may He bless you as you come before Him today!

Until tomorrow...
