"Come back to the place of safety,all you prisoners who still have hope!
I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles."
What a promise! God has shown me that in due season, when we hang on to the hope- not matter what our circumstances- He will repay us for our troubles. Sometimes it comes in wisdom and understanding- other times it is financially- and sometimes He opens a door that we thought was locked.
I have decided that although there are a lot of things that stand out in my life as far as "big blessings" to be thankful for, there are also the "little things" in life that we should never take for granted.
I am starting a "thankful" rant... over the next little while I am going to be continuously looking for things to be thankful for - no matter the size - and sharing them.
There are a number of bible verses that tell us over and over to be thankful no matter the circumstance to come to God with a thankful heart, overflowing with joy in every season.
God is so good, and even if He never did another thing for me, I pray that my heart will never cease to thank Him for all He has done!
