a month of thanksgiving – day thirty

Well, here it is, the last day of November, this month of thanksgiving.  I’ve enjoyed recalling, noticing and appreciating all that I have.  The list goes on… 30 things in 30 days doesn’t at all cover everything for which I’m grateful, but it’s a good start.  I thought I’d give a final thanksgiving and then recap my entire month.

So, on this final day of November I am thankful for purpose.  God gives us all a purpose.  It is up to us to listen to Him, to trust Him and to follow Him so that He can guide us to what it is.  I think purpose can shift and change as life passes, what my purpose was yesterday may not be what it is tomorrow.  But I know that God will use me for His ultimate purpose and that never changes.  So today I’m thankful that I know I have purpose in God’s Kingdom and that while it may not always be clear on a day-to-day basis, I can trust that each and every day is filled with purpose to serve and follow Him.

It is good to remind myself that despite difficult times, I still have so much to be thankful for.  Here’s a short list of 30 things…

Day One – for safety, for power, for a warm bed, for a home to come home too each night, for my life.
