Sometimes being thankful isn’t easy.
Especially when we are going through a rough season in our lives it’s downright hard.
I’ve been there many times in the last several years – and honestly everyone’s thankful posts in month of November haven’t really helped me feel more thankful. But really left me struggling a bit more.
As I reflected over being thankful recently, and all that God has been showing me lately about doubt and worry – I realized where my focus needed to be this November. Not because I don’t have things to be thankful for this year – in fact I think I have MORE to be thankful for now than ever – but because I remember all to well those years of longing and hurt. If I knew then what I know now it may have made those hard times just a bit easier on my heart.
So when I was given the opportunity to write my 1st Ever Guest Post – I knew this was what God laid on my heart to share.

God also laid on my heart to share my thankfulness for who He is – and focus this month on that. So as I join the crowds on Social Media this month of November, instead of posting the tangible things (people, things, opportunities) I’m thankful for this year – I’m posting what I’m thankful for about God’s nature.
Won’t you join me?
