A Month of Being Thankful

Can it really be November already? Where has the year gone? It was too fast, yes we say that every year but truly, for many reasons this year it seems especially so. But it's been a good year filled with many blessings and much to be thanful for. So as I have done the last several years since I began to blog, this month will be reflections filled with thanksgiving.

I have found it quite an insightful  exercise to sit down and to write what I am thankful for. I can't promise I am going to get to it every day but I will give it my best effort to write a Thankful blog several times a week.

Feel free to join me and if you do let me know I'd love to read how God has blessed you!

Currently God has me in a place of "felt" isolation, now I have learned that what we "feel" is not always our reality, but it's often in this place where our enemy takes advantage and begins bombarding us with familiar lies. Only this time I am stronger, this time I know truth and this time I KNOW I do not fight this battle alone.

So today
I am thankful that God is my refuge, He is my strength and He battles the arrows of the enemy for me.
I am thankful that even when I am uncertain my Father knows the plans He has for me - and they are plans that are good.
I am thankful for the gift of faith He has given me.
I am thankful that He never leaves nor forsakes me.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Sharon - it's such a good idea to consciously think about what we are thankful for, because it really reinforces how much there is. As I read this and was thinking, I realized that there are so many things that I have a hard time just listing a few. The one I will mention now is fresh on my mind because I just posted about it. I'm thankful that my son is coming home for Christmas!

  2. Beautiful post and wonderful idea Sharon...I love the thought of being MORE strategic this month about counting our blessings. Thank you so much for sharing this idea and your heart.
