I am Thankful

October 1, 2009

Col 2:6-7 “So then, just as your received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

I have begun making lists each day of things I am thankful for since being in Ethiopia. I thought I would share some of them. I am thankful for:

 -Peace, joy, hope, refreshing

-Cards, encouraging words from friends

-The Lord has sustained me in the midst of transition and food changes (not having a settled stomach)

-Daily provisions (groceries, warm shower, comfy bed, internet)

-REST

-CMF Teammates

-Hope of what He has to come

-Beautiful sunrises, and rainbows after the rain

-Zenbaba, the lady I will work with in the office

-Purpose in working in the office

-GRACE

-Language school

-Community

-Seeing the Lord’s faithfulness through past and present circumstances

-The presence and love of the Lord

There are many, many more, and each thing is just a reminder of how He provides. He is GOOD all of the time!
