Thankful Thursday--Hope

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1

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.

Amen to that, Ann. Yes - we can be certain that He already has a solutions for everything -- sometimes (for me) it is just hard to wait to see the solution.

Cool that your children are doing well with their swimming lessons :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us.

Blessings to you and your precious family.
