Thankfulness Thursday {2.9.17}

I had a particularly rough day last week. I was stressed, tired from the day, and generally just didn't feel good. As I was on the way home, I was thinking only about what had happened through the day, what to do about a problem that was constantly on my mind, and I was generally stressing about life. But God has a way of bringing encouragement and joy right when we need it the most, and that day was certainly no exception!

As we were driving, the sun was setting, and the sky was blazing with the most gorgeous colors ever. I was watching the sunset, and I had such peace in my heart as I realized that God is always good. No matter what happens during a day, the sun is still going to set, and God is still going to be there. He never leaves us to our problems, and even though things may not be looking very good, he is a Good, Good, Father who has given us so much. Things like sunsets seem common, but they are far from that.  Each one is a beautiful gift from God, a reminder that even at the end of a hard day, he is still there. He is ever-present, and he loves us. No matter what we have done or what we are feeling, he is always there. I am so thankful for that promise!

From the rising of the sun unto the going down,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
Psalm 113:3
