Thankful Thursday 12-15-2022
Thankful Thursday sees the sights, sounds, and smells of the season oozing around us. Each of these moments physically expresses intangible emotions that become highlighted at this time of year. The ability to express ourselves through creation is a gift from God.
Expression takes many different forms. The perfect model surrounds us with His creation. Colossians 1:16 shares ” 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” As we look to express ourselves, first looking to God for His guidance and direction to express is the best step to take.
From the hard, painful moments like the first time (or continued times) though the holidays without treasured loved ones to the simple, joyful moments experienced purely and unfiltered by pause, the range of experience and emotion provide a sea of opportunity to turn to God, share with Him, and in turn share through your unique gifting of expression to those around you. You are important. The processing of hard moments shared or the unfiltered joy expressed through song, a dance, or a card dropped in the mail each offer the gift of comfort as we share this time on earth together. May you create, connect, and comfort this Christmas!
