What are you thankful for this week? As strange as this is going to sound: I'm thankful that I was terminated from my job. (I told you it would sound strange!)
I'm really serious here. Don't get me wrong, being fired downright stinks! Especially when you know you are innocent of what they say you did. However, this has made me move out of my box. (big time) When this situation was first voiced, I began to pray for God's will. This was new for me. In the past, I would begged God to fix this and restore my position. I simply stated, "Lord You know what is best. Your will, not mine, be done." Obviously, He does not need me where I was anymore. I'm seeing a little more growth in myself and the voicing my faith, my prayers. While I'm still a little nervous about the unknown, I find myself clinging to Lord for strength and boldness. That part, I'm very thankful for!
A Psalm of David.1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Yea, 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. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.
