30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 4

thankfulnessAs I sit here in my apartment on this rainy autumn afternoon, I can’t help but be thankful for all of God’s provision for my family since we moved to France nearly two years ago (which blows my mind to think that we’ve been married and France-dwelling for almost two years now!). God is the ultimate provider, and as I reflect upon all the things He has provided me with, I realize just how blessed I am.

Our apartment, our jobs, food, clothing, and good health–these are just a few of the many, many things my husband and I are blessed with. And I am very thankful that God loves His people and that He provides for our every need.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

  1. Hallo, Hallo Maggie! :)

    I know first hand the power of prayer and of living a life bound to the hope of what our faith can provide for us. Its amazing to me how we are protected and guided to find where not only we are led to live and work, but that each of our necessary needs are not overlooked but provided in ways we were not yet expecting. I think this is the mark of true faith and of being mindful of our connection to our faith as we live our life. Sometimes you can become lost in the chaos of life but if you remain mindful and thankful of how your path is positively affected by your hopes and prayers, you will start to see the blessings stitching together on your tapestry! :) I too, am thankful for this in my own life! :) And, this particular Psalm has long since been a favourite of my own choosing! :) Beautiful post, Maggie! :) You effectively write your heart into your thankfulness missives and by sharing your heart you connect to each of us in a personal way.
