Thankful Thursday- Possibilities


What an exciting theme for a Thankful Thursday post. Join in the fun here.

The possibilities with God on your side are endless! I think we are all living proof of that!

I am thankful for the possibilities that today holds. The Lord reminds us in Matthew 6:34 not to “worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.” When people read this verse they tend to get hung up on the word trouble. What if you replaced it with the word possibility? Because that is what troubles and problems are when we are living in Christ- opportunities and possibilities depending on the way we CHOOSE to handle them. Troubles come- it is how we choose to handle them that can turn them into a wonderful possibility for our life!

I am thankful for the possiblities that await us in eternity! I just finished reading a fabulous book, The Shack. You can read my review here. The vivid imagery in that book reminded me anew of the promise of what is to come when our lives on this earth come to an end. Praise the Lord- I can hardly wait!

I am thankful also this week for the possibilities that lie in my boys. They are becoming young men and certain situations this week revealed to me, that even though they are often self centered and egotistical (typical for this stage of brain development), that the possibility of the men they are becoming is promising. They are compassionate and make choices based on loving others, not just themselves. I am thankful for God giving me those glimpses so that I am not frustrated with them all the time during these adolescent years.

Thank you, Iris, for having us look at possibilities today. Possibility means hope to me and I love living a life based in the hope and promises of God. What possibilities are you thankful for?
