Thankful Thursday

Sometimes it's so hard to be thankful. This week my heart is heavy. I would really just as soon crawl back in bed and cry some more than think of all the ways I'm blessed. It's been a rough week with the Teen. Right now he is spending a few days with my parents. I'm sad that he's there instead of home, I'm sad that this "timeout" was necessary, I miss him, and I'm scared about how things will be when he gets home.

But I can be thankful that God knows my fears. He hears my prayers. He knows how this will end and he cares for me. Thank you Lord that you loved sinners such as me enough to send Your Son to live a sinless life, die an atoning death, and rise again on the third day. Thank you for loving me even when I fall. Thank you for Your word, the Bible. Thank you for wonderful friends and family.

  2. I'm the mother of 2 grown daughters who struggled in their teens, but they love the Lord, married believers, and now have their own litte ones. My heart goes out to you in this time of raising a teen. Sometimes I didn't know if my husband and I could get through those years and I know we made a lot of mistakes, but God was faithful then and He is faithful to bring you through this. Just thanking Him when we don't feel like it honors Him. I will be praying for you as you walk through this.
    Blessings to you,

  3. Oh I am so sorry you are having a difficult time with your teen. I have a 20, 18 and 13 year old. It is so hard. Just keep praying and I will put you in my prayers also. Keep looking up.

  4. Praying for you! Bless you and Happy Easter!

Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
