100 DAYS OF THANKS




Continuing to count God's sweet blessings...


2430. A double date with my grandparents.


2431. My grandparents celebrating 61 years of marriage over the weekend and my parents celebrating 42 years of marriage this week.

2432. The Godly example of love and marriage that my parents and grandparents are.


2433
. Another year of homeschooling, it is such a blessing to us.

2434. Having my daughter home from college for the summer.


Share something you are praising God. I would love to rejoice with you.


**********

One thing I learned when I first started counting my blessings is that there is always something to be thankful for. Sometimes it's the big booming blessings in our lives, sometimes it's as simple as a sunset, and sometimes it's found in a sink of dirty dishes.

In the new devotion 100 Days of Thanks, you will find real, tangible things to praise God for. Reasons to give thanks every day of the year. You will learn that gratitude defeats darkness and thanksgiving defeats discontent.



100 Days of Thanks has, as the title says, 100 days of devotions to teach you about thanksgiving. Each day has a Scripture, a very brief devotion, and an open space to write your own thoughts or gratitude list. When you spend 100 days intentionally giving thanks, you will be creating a life long habit of thanksgiving.

Pick up your copy of 100 Days of Thanks below.

HE DID

There is a saying that goes: She believed she could so she did. While the saying is good and inspires some, I've always had a bit of trouble with it.

There are some things that are just out of my power. Some things that I cannot do. As much as I'd like to believe I can, sometimes I just know that I can't. I can't do all things. I am not super human. I am not super natural.

Recently I heard Lara Casey, from Cultivate What Matters, change up the famous saying just a bit. Lara said, "She thought she couldn't, so He did."


We can't do it all. No matter how much we want to believe that in our power we can do anything, the truth is we cannot. But God can. If God is giving you a dream, He can bring it to fruition. If God is leading you somewhere, He has a plan.

I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13

We are able to do things through God, not on our own. It is His strength in us. It is His power in us. We know that we, on our own, can't, but we can have faith that He can.

When you are struggling to realize the dreams deep inside your heart or accomplish something big or small, remember that regardless of what you can't do, God can do it. Place it in His hands and trust that "He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6
