Thankfulness Isn't only for Thanksgiving

01 January 2014

Introduction: Hi, My name is Britney, and I am just a girl with a heart for Jesus from Michigan. I am passionate about encouraging young women in their walk with God and I know that God has a plan for this space, and i pray that you find encouragement and rest in it. My best friend Hillary and I came together to do this blog and we both agreed that it would be a place where we could be real and encourage young women as they grow in their relationship with God. Our prayer is that "The Quiet Place" would be that place where God meets you right where you are at no matter what you are going through. My favorite verse Joshua 1:9 says it best--"Have I not commanded you, be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go"--Joshua 1:9 (NIV) So with that said, I hope that you will join us in this place of rest and encouragement for your soul.

Currently I am reading the book: One thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp,  It has truly made me see what is to be thankful, even for the most mundane or ordinary things. Ann says it best with this quote from the book: "Something always comes to fill the empty places. And when I give thanks for the seemingly microscopic, I make a place for God to grow within me"

Sometimes life seems like we are on a constant roller coaster of pain, hard ache, and even joy. The roller coaster just keeps going and we don't know if we can keep up, but we must remember that in the midst of these circumstances, giving thanks to him is what he calls us do, even if it's just for the socks on our feet. 

The verse from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 has really resonated with me, it says, "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." Think about that for second, Give thanks in all circumstances not just the good ones, but all of them. Even the ones where we feel defeated, or sad because in these moments it is where we find God's grace and love. It is in these moments of defeat that he meets us right where we are at. 

So sisters, whatever you are going through this week know that he is right there with you in the midst of it all, and don't forget to thank him for all that he has given you with his grace and love.
