The End And A Beginning - Day #30 of Thanksgiving

30 days of Thankfulness. 

A practice. 
A journey. 
A life attitude. 
Purposely seeking. 
Becoming more like Christ in all we do. 
Having eyes to see beauty where none exists. 
3o days to establish a habit. 
A commitment to desire more. 
To yearn to be molded and shaped into the child God wants us to be. 
Displaying a heart in submission to the  path placed before us. 
A season of Thanksgiving leading into the season of Preparation. 
It's not too late to begin the walk of Thankfulness. 
Dig deep. 
Find the beauty amid the ashes. 

See God is doing a new thing. 

Isaiah 43:19
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? 
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

Do you have eyes to see? 
Have you pulled back the veil enough to see beyond the pain, beyond the grief. 
Because, God is there. 
He reaches down and pours out his riches. 
We are free to walk in His grace. 
The word for the day.  
The Advent candle lit.
The final day of November, the first day of Advent. 
Such close proximity. 
Thankfulness - Preparation. 
A season. 
 Hope of all Nations. 
Good news. 
Living in us. 
All around us a need. 
Choices made to live; in hope. 
Hope, when there's uncertainty and each step feels weighed down. 
Hope, when the pain of missing threatens to shatter the resolve. 

This Season set apart to grow deeper.
For some, hopes have been dashed. 
Faith rocked. 
Life; challenged.

Stepping into the first lesson in Advent opens our hearts to the possibility
 of what is to come. 
Let Hope guide your path this week. 
Hope in all that is to come and all that will be. 
Hope that the finished work in Christ is proclaimed. 

Isaiah 40:31
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. 
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
 they will walk and not be faint.


  1. This is such a beautiful post and I love that you ended with Isaiah 40:31, God's promise to those who trust and wait on Him is to renew their strength!

    1. Thank you. Hope is a gift. . . yes? We need eyes to see and a heart willing to yield.
