Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for answered prayers.

I've prayed for patience... and God is giving me plenty of opportunities for patience. I've prayed for brokenness, and I feel the breaking. I've prayed to be humbled, and yes, that too...

I prayed for these things because I want my heart to be aligned with His. I want to be poured out in love for Jesus, and for those Jesus loves...

This life is not for my happiness, but for my holiness.

And I am truly grateful... but boy do I need to cling to Him!

Don't worry, it's not that it's "that bad" over here in India. It's that I am that fragile. The culture shock has made everything so much bigger than it was before. I am just not capable of shouldering on with a large emotional load right now...

Which means I have to rely on Him more and more. And therefore, despite "feelings", it is good.

So thank you, Jesus. Sincerely.

What are you thankful for?

  2. What beautiful prayers of thanks to our Lord. You are such a brave one and clinging to Him is what it is all about. I have friends who were missionaries to India for 25 years. Lalu was from India and his wife an American. You actually remind me of her :) Bless You!
