Thankfulness And Trust

Mentally going over the to do list. So many things to get done, and I can feel the muscles tighten. Stress comes as an uninvited guest….and why can’t I get this right? Give all my burdens to Him and He will give me rest. I give them, and take them back, and I frustrate myself with my hesitancy to completely trust.

It is difficult to remain stressed when I’m thanking God, the One who gives the gifts. Thankfulness and stress can’t share the same space.

I need to get this right.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV

*Quiet evening, walking the dog

*Golden sunset

*Mama deer with her baby, on the edge of the cornfield

*Morning stillness

*Mist low on the ground

*Silhouette of the neighbor’s barn in the mist

*Heavy dew clinging to the grass, the weeds in the field, shimmering in the morning light

*Fuzzy purple socks and a hoodie

*Daughter’s birthday cake with home made frosting

*Ice cream with all the toppings

*18th Birthday

*The first official full day of Fall

*Jesus, always Jesus…

  1. I’ve walked down rows like these a hundred times. Thank you. And yes, it’s hard to get stressed out when you’re praising and thanking God.
