Between One Thousand Gifts, and my 10000 Blessings project, and now my 52 Gratitudes, I am coming around, breaking the bonds of discontentment, turning my frowns upside down, changing a wayward heart. After this past year, which was, how shall I put it?
I knew the new year needed a drastic turning, changing, breaking, moving away from what was tearing me apart towards what could mend my fracturing heart and life.
Without a doubt, recording my gratitudes, has been part of that healing process. Each weeks gratefulness offers a stone. At the end of the year the entire album will become stones of remembrance. "Susan, remember that year you were grateful. That year I got you through." says the Lord. "You remember Me blessing you. You acknowledged My hand on your life."
"Yes, Lord, I remember."
"That's where you need to be, again."
Oh, yes, this album is definitely for me! Each one I pull off my shelf full of memories I remember.
And, this week as I embark on a new journey digging mines within the pages of the Word of God, searching for, what? Whatever He hopes to show me. Believing Him without a doubt that...
He is who He says He is.
He can do what He says He can do.
I am who God says I am.
I can do all things through Christ.
His Word is alive and active in me.
Yeah, believing that.
