Thankful Thursday #17

This morning I am reminded of a quote from the movie Chocolat.
Do I want to speak of the miracle... 
of our Lord's divine transformation? 
Not really, no. 
I don't want to talk about His divinity. 
I'd rather talk about His humanity. 

Because that's how I'm feeling this morning. I want to have something remarkable to share . . . something that speaks of the wonder and awe of God and His relationship with us. But I just don't have it this morning.

What I do have are the recurring questions about relationships and what God's will is regarding one in particular.

I have broken off communication with some family members. Since doing that, I have felt more peace in many ways, but I find myself questioning whether or not my peace/happiness is a fair trade-off for whatever pain/anger they may be feeling. 

So once more today, I find myself grateful for the lessons I have learned about the compassion and humanity of our Father. He understands my feelings, of that I am sure. I am reminded that He is my Father to whom I may bring every problem, struggle, and joy. He never tires of listening to me, and His deepest desire is what is best for me. 

Questions may linger. Adjustments may need to be made. People are changelings, but God is constant. And I am so grateful for that today.

  1. I am so sorry about the rift in your family. I hope you find proper guidance. I do have my feelings on the matter but do not feel like it is my place to share them with you so I will just pray and let God heal your hearts. Have a wonderful day.

    1. Thank you Ms Kathleen. I would be happy to hear your thoughts if you care to share them.
