5 Minutes from the Heart: Grateful

grateful-heart Linking with www.lisajobaker.com for another sisterhood of writers who were surprised by motherhood and together work their way through the daily joys of raising a family. Today’s prompt is Grateful.

Start: 6:23 am
It can be so hard to be grateful when the world feels like it’s crashing in around you. Often we feel like everything is so wrong that there is nothing right in our lives, but what we have to remember is that Christ died for us so that we might have eternal life. He took on the weight of the world and our sin so that we might live a life we didn’t deserve to be given. So, today, be grateful for what you have even in the midst of all the chaos. Take time to thank God for the things that make your life worth living; the things that draw you closer to Him. He is our rock and our fortress. He is our comfort in times of trouble, and for that I am grateful today.

What are you grateful for? What gets you through the tough days that you don’t think you can make it another step? Who pulls you out of the trenches or better yet gets in there with you and helps you to dig your way out? When all else fails, when everyone seems to have their own agenda, who can you call upon for strength and comfort? God is good all the time, and for that I am grateful.

Stop: 6:28 am

  2. Great reminder! It’s so easy to forget what it’s all about in the middle of the chaos. Have a wonderful day! Christine (popping in from FMF)
