Thankful Thursday 6-17-2021

Instruction Book

Thankful Thursday dawns with one beautiful morning outside here in central Pennsylvania. As I walked outside with my son to say goodbye as he headed into his day, I asked him if I should meet him later with a water bottle for his activities this evening. He looked at me and said, “Mom, I’m coming home before tonight’s activity. You don’t have to meet me.” I thanked him for the updated and shared that I mentally had not yet reviewed today’s entire plans for the family.

After sending him on his way, I got my morning coffee and spent some time in devotions and scripture. This grounding time of my day is so important as it creates not only the stepping stone for the plans ahead, but also the “how-to” guide for I the attitude I bring to each situation. No matter what we face in life, the Bible holds answers and direction for where we are right now in life.

If you feel as though you are floundering a bit, need a bit of reorienting, or just want to be grounded again, carve out a bit more time to be with Jesus. Take in His Word. Let His presence surround you, hold you, and care for you. He loves you.

I am grateful for the nurturing. This fuels me to make the changes I need and to love others as I am called. I pray you find nurturing and fuel as you spend time with Jesus today too!

Blessings to you!
