1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIRV)

18 Give thanks no matter  what happens. God wants you to thank him because you believe in Christ Jesus.

 

In all things give thanks! This year, ok so the last few months, have been full of so many reasons for me to be thankful. Yet no matter what good or bad with each day I found a reason to tell God “Thank you!”

What an awesome gift gratitude can be!  To recognize those splendid moments and to be able to whisper or shout to God our thanks.

Thankfully making His praise glorious today and everyday!

John 8:12 (NIRV)

12 Jesus spoke to the people again. He said, “I am the light of the world. Those who follow me will never walk in darkness. They will have the light that leads to life.”

The sky  over the last few days has been a conflagration of colors. Painted with broad strokes of mostly light and dark grays, hints of pewter with pockets of periwinkle shyly peeking through.

This morning I was greeted by a sky showcasing several lighter shades as the lower clouds seem to have sought higher elevations. These seemingly drab hued skies have been the perfect backdrop for God’s vivid handiwork.  These cloudy skies  have been the perfect for setting off the splendid colors of red, gold and orange of the still changing leaves.

Moments arise when life through our eyes appears void, colorless and downright unappealing, yet cast as one of God’s masterpieces  when we allow His light to shine through He is able to reveal the beauty hidden within.

Making His praise glorious!

A basket of yarn

Psalm 27:13 (CEB)

13 But I have sure faith that I will experience the Lord’s goodness   in the land of the living!

Some months ago I embarked upon this incredible quest to consciously and more actively help others.  Being able to spend copious amounts time doing something I enjoy such as the of changing balls of yarn into hats and scarves  was and is an added blessing.

Wait, now how exactly does that translate into stitches in faith?  Well, I believe that God blesses us when we help those in need, as listed in Matthew 25:40  –  ‘I assure you that when you have done it for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it for me.’   I was already knitting, a lot, but it lacked a truer more useful  purpose.  With the realization of purpose came the growth and testing of my faith.  I believed God would send yarn and knitted goods so I opened  a post office box and put out the word!  Admittedly, self-promotion or promotion in general is NOT my gift, after all for the most part, I am shy.

Imagine my sheer delight when I received not one, but two separate donations!  My glee was barely controlled.  The needles never stopped. I prayed for eager helpers and found two sitting right under my nose!  Bored students with time on their hands have been my angels.

Last night digging through the  slowly dwindling yarn stash trying to cobble together enough yarn colors to make even more items, my prayers began anew,  “Lord, please send more yarn and soon!  The nights are getting colder and the need to meet the need of others has not diminished!!!  I thank God daily for the heart of a servant who desires nothing more than to do the will of my Master and lead others into glorious relationship with Him!

Making His praise glorious!
