So your life isn’t perfect. You’ve got a wayward child, a grand baby struggling to survive, a health issue of your own.
You weep quiet at nights and stumble lonely through days and it’s a privilege to pray for sisters with imperfect lives.
There’s one thing we can do in the middle of our hard: give thanks. So sure it sounds like a catch all phrase but there’s a reason God instructs us to give thanks in everything. Maybe, just maybe, it is our lifeline to hope. Maybe it is our sight in the dark. And maybe it is manna in the desert.
This week I read Meredith’s post ~ a tribute really~ to an imperfect man. He’s stopped trying to fix everything that’s wrong and focuses instead on everything that’s right. He inspires others to remember what we have to be thankful for, no matter what.
Meredith shares eight things to be thankful for, even in the most difficult of seasons. If you need light in your darkness today, visit The Wicket Gate. You’ll be glad you did.
