On this wonderful Thankful Thursday, I am thankful that God is sovereign. I am thankful that His ways are better than my ways. You see, the weatherman here forecast snow for yesterday and we were all looking forward to it! However, it never came. I am tempted to be ungrateful about this, but God is using this to remind me that He is ultimately in control.
There are so many things that I wish wouldn't happen, or would make happen if I could, but God is in control of everything, and He knows what He is doing. He has a reason for it not snowing today, just as He had a reason for me having cancer as a baby. I might not see a reason for it not snowing now (or ever) but I trust my God that He knows best. Just as I am now thankful for my cancer, as my own experience is how I knew that my son also had it, and helped me get through that ordeal. I am actually thankful that God gave me the gift of experiencing it for myself.
So I can also choose to rejoice in the fact that there is no snow... even though I really, REALLY wanted it. I love snow! But I love my God more. The snow will come in His time, not mine. I am thankful that He is in control and that He knows what is best for us all.
I would love for you to join me by posting your favorite Christ centered Christmas song. My personal goal is to post a different Christ-centered Christmas song each day between now and Christmas. (The only rule is that it has to be Christ-centered. No songs about Santa, Christmas trees or whatever...)
