Thinking on “Thanks” and “Giving” my Thoughts.
So, just to get things started out right, Turkey day was great! Rebekah’s dressing was in full effect and Mom’s chocolate pie was off the chain! word!
And what i am thankful for:
for the past few days I’ve been reading through Psalms. David was an interesting guy to say the least. Known for his ability to kill with his bare hands , and a man after God’s own heart.
But the one thing that stands out to me is his ‘brutal honesty’ (thank you Jerry Maguire)
David was not like most christians today. Somewhere along the way, its like there was this un-written rule that once you become a christian, you must do your best to become ‘sinless’- since that’s not possible, we’ve gotten really good at hiding them. It is as if it is taboo for a christian to admit his or her sin, their struggles, their imperfections.
But, it wasn’t hard for David, in the same breath he declares his faithfulness to God and his own shortcomings. His struggle is real and we read it all throughout the Old Testament. I think David’s example gives us all a voice.
So this thanksgiving I am thankful for the fact that God sees all of who I am -my worship as well as my sin – through the eyes of Jesus.
You have taken account of my wanderings;
Put my tears in Your bottle.
Are they not in Your book? – Psalm 56:8
