Was your Thanksgiving really thankful?!

Again..forgive me for not being deligent on this blog. I feel like I have been just surviving week to week. Yet, that is what the enemy wants me to feel and again I am taking each word captive..Praise God!

I have another Blog also so that I can try and sell my art work. It is donnasfineart.blogspot.com ....I haven't finished it, I actually just started it, but I want to try and put as much as I can on it. It is so hard when you don't have the resources to sell your items, it is really word of mouth and God willing you who read this are my word of mouth.

So how are all of you precious ladies? Was everyone thankful for what God gave us this year? I remember praying with my family that day and I was determined not to be miserable and to be thankful and to remember that every single thing that we have is from the Lord...you all know my husband and how he feels he has been "robbed" of his health and living...well he did find things to be thankful for but it was hard. God is so good and we just don't look at it that way enough times. I am always saying that I know I am at my job for a reason and I know the blessing is right around the corner. The Lord has led me to write every day in my journal for things that only He knows that is happening with my life...I write and then, only through the Lord, I open the Bible and WOW he proclaims His grace and mercy through the word...everything I write about is revealed through the scriptures, it is totally amazing. Yet I shouldn't be because when I was going through a divorce the Lord revealed Himself each day the very same way and I could not have gone through what I did without the word or Him..He is my Father, Lord of Lords, Prince of Peace and King of Kings....

I do have to reveal to you what He gave me tonight. Psalm 37:1-8....trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the Land and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall GIVE YOU the Desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord. Trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass....rest in the Lord and wait paitently for Him. DO NOT FRET because of him who prospers in his way...cease from anger and forsake wrath; Do not fret-it onlu causes harm!......Amen!

This is my life, always jealous of this thing or that one. Even though I tell my husband its wrong to be angry because others have what we don't ..I secretly harbor the same thing! I need to constantly remind myself to trust, committ my ways, rest in Him, be patient for His answer, and dwell in His land and feed and believe...FEED ON HIS FAITHFULNESS!! That is my desire...I really believe the Lord revealed that I need His peace to accomplish the purpose that He has for my life. I have tried shortcuts and when I've done that I notice the Lord leaves me at that point to figure it out on my own and to notice that without His peace we can't move on. I need to focus, stay in peace and dwell in His land. Then my needs will be met because the Lord is then in charge and I am walking with Him hand in hand! I know He never ever leaves us, I just believe He says, "Go ahead figure it out..but if you wait for me I will give you far better blessings than you can ever imagine"

Well I don't know if you have ever thought like that or if you're going through what I often go through...wherever you are today, rest in His peace, thank Him for waking you this morning, and then you will feel like you are truly His daughter...

I love you all
Donna

Donna, I look for you everyday. I know that you will get through the hard times and will be the servant God intended you to be. Yes, I think we all harbor thoughts like you mentioned, but when you compare what we have to what other countries have, we are blessed.
