He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul."
This weekend is Thanksgiving in the Great White North of Canada - and I can't help but find myself incredibly thankful for the bounty of blessings in my life. I've been hindered by thoughts of confusion, loneliness and self-worth this past week and have refused to REJOICE in each new day and the mercies that come with it. I was caught up in the whirlwind of "everyday life".
Today I drove with a girlfriend to do a grocery-shop for our annual Thanksgiving dinner on Monday. We vented. A lot. About work, finances, friendships and hardships. However, in each topic we came to the same conclusion: The Lord provides and He is good. Simple, honest and raw Truth. We put Life into our conversations about life.
I am thankful for this day. I am thankful for that friend and my family. Most of all - I am thankful that I serve a merciful God who abundantly provides what I truly need - always. Even if I tend to forget that every once in awhile.
"The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
