The required “Things I’m Thankful For” Post

Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done. (Psalm 105:1)

I’m thankful for several things this year.

I’m thankful I have a job that I love. I had a rough year of being unemployed for most of it and not knowing if/when I was ever going to get another job. But I knew that I had to keep trusting God and that he was going to be faithful and protect/provide for me. He then blessed me with a job I absolutely love. He not only answered prayer, he went above and beyond it. It truly was one of those situations where you know God was definitely looking out for you. I know that it won’t always be awesome but right now it is.

I’m thankful for my awesome summer. Not having a job really puts a crimp into summer plans and I was prepared to have a dismal summer while everyone else was having the time of their life. But instead, I had the summer of #winning. Seriously it was epic and stupid crazy how it all happened. #blessed

I’m thankful that a really awkward conversation did not ruin a friendship. I mean unless this person is pretending that they are not weirded out (and I seriously doubt this), it actually was a blessing and a turning point for my life. Because of that conversation, I stopped making certain things I wanted an idol in my life. For the first time in a VERY long time, I feel like I’m in a good place. Yes there are things I want and very much still hope that they happen. But I’m feeling like I’m at peace right now. I don’t feel like I’ve settled or that I’m done and can just cruise on the rest in life. I know that soon trials will come again and I’ll be tested. But for now, I feel like things are going to be ok.

I’ll talk more at the end of the year about 2014 had me being “The Impossible Girl” and we’ll see how that all ends up being.

But for now, yeah, these are the things I’m thankful for.
