Even in times of uncertainty, pruning, and hurts there are always things to be thankful for.

Today I give thanks to the Lord for confirming over the last few months what He has already been preparing me for, and even what I have asked Him specifically to provide for me a way out –

He has released me.

And while the release comes with pain and sadness, it is one that I know is for His best for me and my family.

That is the comfort for my heart.

I know, not only from scripture, but also because He has proven His faithfulness to me over and over and over, that this is just the beginning of what is yet to come.

He works all things – not some things – but all things, for His good – so today – I give thanks – even through the sadness.

Lord, thank you for loving me so much you want me better. Thank you for confirming and preparing me for what has come and not just springing it on me last minute. Thank you for using this pain to pave the way for what is yet to come. I see you are doing a new thing – yes, Lord, I perceive it. You will make the crooked path straight. I welcome it. Even though the unknown makes me nauseated, I trust you and your plans for my family. Thank you for the sun shining this morning. Thank you for birds singing out my window. Thank you for the electricity you have provide on these super hot days. Thank you for a vehicle that you provided for us. Thank you loving me. Thank you for picking me up out of the muck and the mire and not giving up on me. Thank you for going before me. I love you, Lord. Amen
