In last week’s blog, I wrote on Gratitude and choosing joy. God is in both the good and the challenging times. It is harder to find gratitude in the losses or difficult trials. But, it is in those times when we receive God’s immeasurable grace and strength.
“But he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, my power is made perfect in weaknes." 2 Cor. 12:9
But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ's gift. Ephesians 4:7
In our time of need, God is always there. The truth is that God is to be found in everything. I love nature. I love admiring His wonderful creation. Yes, God is the Creator of All. In every moment of the day...
In His beautiful creation, His magnificence in a Rainbow…

Being that God created the Universe and all that it contains, how do I miss Him in the daily moments? How do I not live in thankfulness?
Everyday is a true gift. I want to wake up looking for God in all His glory. He displays His glory daily. We simply have to look for it!
We learn from every situation and can appreciate each moment from God, the author of our story. Do we really deserve anything? Didn’t God, the creator of the Universe, breathe life in us? God has numbered our days.. In this gift of life, we have the opportunity to take notice of his works and engage in the moment.
“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
Oh, I need to stay focused on God and lean into every moment.. lean into Him..
In the good and the bad, He is with me. He will give me His strength...
Embrace the trials as part of our story. He will give us everything we need to handle the trials with His grace and strength.
As I learn to do this as well, Today I see Him in..
My husband’s smile as he is recovering from knee surgery.. Oh, what a great smile.. How I love him..
My sweet daughter expecting her second child soon.. feeling the baby move inside her womb.. how beautiful…
My grandbaby, Penelope running in the kitchen saying..”Mimi, hold you, Mimi..”
Life is beautiful and precious.. yes I struggle with various trials.. But I am choosing to count it all joy.. trusting in God to be in control.. where I am not..
Continuing my Gratitude journal …looking for His beauty in all people and creation… in every moment of the day..
