Day 182 of 366: thankful for the Lord’s protection

Β Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, β€œHe is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:1-2

Today was a mess. My sister and I went to town to conduct business and to go shopping, but it was halted by protests, gunmen, and fire. We eventually had to leave town, but I’m thankful for God’s protection throughout this ordeal. He’s simply the best when it comes to safety. πŸ’™

Day 181 of 366: thankful for the long trip

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Deuteronomy 31:8

I’m not sure if it’s me, but I’ve been having quite the trouble in trying to begin a new post. Every time I click on “new post”, nothing comes up and it was a little frustrating.

Anyways, I went on a trip yesterday with a few friends. Well, it started off as a trip and ended up being an adventurous excursion. It was long, entertaining, and engaging because of the company. We also stopped at a popular destination that both tourists and locals enjoy: the temple in the sea. I’ll talk more about this destination on the main blog soon (hopefully!).

I was not going on this trip, but I’m thankful that I went and thankful for safe travels.

Day 179 of 366: thankful for kept promises

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.
Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

Promises. They’re easy to make and easy to break no matter how little or big. However, we can lean on the promises of God, for His promises withstand the test of time. They never fail us or leave us desperate. Instead, they fill us with hope and joy.

Did you not pour me out like milk
and curdle me like cheese,

And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order.

Luke 11:25

When I woke up this morning, I dove straight into today’s operation: cleaning. I swept, mopped, cleaned windows, under the bed, behind the bookshelf etc. I had Michael Jackson on for background music as he’s my go-to for when I’m cleaning and before I knew it, the morning passed beautifully.

And everything smells so fresh and lovely!

I’m thankful that I got the cleaning done and I now look forward to working on the main blog if time permits.

Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.

Day 173 of 366: thankful for salt

β€œYou are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?

except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

Today was a hectic and trying day. At the moment, if it’s not one thing, it’s another and through it all, I’ve been seeking God in all of this. My sister is also not well, so we’re battling through some tough times. Please keep us in your prayers.Β 

I can’t concentrate right now, but I just wanted to come on to say how thankful I am for salt today, otherwise the food would’ve been tasteless! πŸ˜†
