Thankful Thursday (8/8) A Day Late

This post is a day late. Yesterday morning/early afternoon was busy, AND then we didn't have Internet access yesterday afternoon/evening. And, honestly, I was having a tough time being thankful. 


Today (yesterday), I'm thankful for no's. 

I'm thankful for all the times I was told "no" as a child. It taught me there are boundaries.

I'm thankful for all the times God didn't answer my teenage pleas of having a boyfriend. I would have made terrible choices. I would have regretted them.  I likely wouldn't have met The Husband. And, I wouldn't have Jack. 

I'm thankful the answer was "no" to the job The Husband interviewed for this week.  I don't like it. Part of me wishes it were a "yes" instead. But, I'm thankful because I know God's in control. I don't know what He's doing specifically, but I do know He works out everything for our good.  I know He has something even better in store for us.  Even better than the what-seemed-like-perfect job. 

Today, I'm thankful for "no."

"Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."  1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18


  1. We are thankful for you and all the things you have taught us about abundant faith! Love you.
