Thankful Thursday 10-7-2021


Thankful Thursday welcomes relief. Today’s task list stretched long. As I worked my way through the first several items, I mentally checked each task off. While happy about completing the tasks, I did so with a building migraine.

Relief finally came to my body, but to my horror, it was as I was in the middle of a phone conversation that abruptly ended (and was later followed up to wrap up our discussion once I regained composed to speak well). That relief helped me to realized the weight of tightness and heaviness that I had unknowingly been carrying. It brought me to a place of gratitude.

I am gratitude for the end of the feud my body was experiencing and for the peace of resting in the knowledge that whatever is before me or in my mind is fully in God’s capable hands. I know that as I sleep God will have my body work to repair the injured or worn-down pieces that have resulted from living in this world. One day, full relief will come when God calls me home. While on this earth, I continue to look to God for where He calls me and to act upon that calling while sending up prayers of gratitude for the relief God provides now.

Blessings to you!
