i feel the need to thank God publicly for being so merciful and kind to me. i have so much to thank Him for today (every day actually – but i don’t). i want to make clear that i am not thanking Him because my life is perfect at this particular moment, but because even in the midst of the imperfection He speaks into the depths of my soul words of love and faithfulness. He out of the blue chose to use people and situations to tell me – the deepest part of me –  that He is there and that He loves me. i’m thankful that i hear Him and thankful that He reminds me of who He truly is when i start to forget. I am thankful for His answers to prayers i didn’t even have to time to pray today. i am thankful for Him.
