Thanksgiving....


I have been having one of THOSE weeks!! I had a wonderful weekend - hectic though it was - full of food, fun and plenty of wonderful godly fellowship - but then all of a sudden I found myself on Monday morning being so disorganised it was funny!! Or maybe I just found it funny because I knew if I didn't laugh I'd atart to cry.... And probably never stop!! :)

Yet exactly when I needed to focus on something other than my awful week, God found time to send me the 'Good Morning Girls' study on.... thanksgiving :)  The  Lord of all creation knew that the one thing that could get me off my pity train and into His Word was the topic of cultivating a heart of gratitude and thankfulness. 



Do I think He got the girls at GMG to write this study just for me? You ever know!!! :) But what I do know is that He is my Father and He knows me better than I even know myself. Over the past two days I have read, absorbed and prayed His Word, and I am starting a gratitude journal, to help keep my heart focused on Him. God's timing is perfect and already I can see so many things to add to my journal! 

So while I apologise for stopping Proverbs for a while - we will get back to it - I want to delve into His Word with a focus on Him and not on me. If you want to join me, why not have a look at the Good Morning Girls website at www.goodmorninggirls.org and join the thousands of other women all around the world, focusing their hearts on gratitude this fortnight. 

Keep shining xx
