Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
This week, like Iris, I am thankful for HOPE.
I'm thankful that we don't have to see the solution to know that God has one. He knows this child, he knows my need for a sub at work, he knows my need for good childcare for the baby. He knows how everything will play out at church, work, and home.
I'm thankful that I can be CERTAIN of that, despite my circumstances.
I'm thankful that as much tumult there is around here, I can still have hope, because "My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness." It's not me or my doing, but God working in, around, and through me.
I'm thankful that Henry is learning to swim--both he and Harmony have made great strides this week in swimming lessons.
I'm thankful to have great, supportive, praying friends.
I'm thankful that faith gives us this certainty.
