A Pause For Thanks… #828Blessings Share Social {9}

frost2This morning I woke up trying to decide what to write for my #828Blessings post today.  I went over the various situations God has worked out for me this week but none of them felt ‘right’.  When I woke up this morning the ground was covered in frost and all I could think was “Isn’t God amazing!?!”  I kept thinking that again and  again.  As I drove my Teenager to his practice, I felt a pause in my Spirit.  A Selah moment.  To reflect and give thanks.

On my drive home, I began looking at the beauty of the day.  This need to pause wouldn’t leave me.  I yielded.  My thoughts took me to how recently I have met so many people through my Blog and this new experience who in my day-to-day I would never have met.  People that I would truly miss if I were not to have them in my life tomorrow.

The same way God takes the time to place the frost on the grass this day and not the next He takes the time to place specific people in our lives who can bring us to new places and experiences.  Within the past 3 months I have met Ladies who have taught me that who I am is okay and being that with confidence is okay too.  I have been able to receive encouragement through people’s words, experiences and testimonies that have helped me in ways I have yet to share.

As I pulled into my driveway I thanked God for giving me the time to pause and give thanks for the unexpected blessings of people and their gifts in my life.  I realize that there are people who are in my life for reasons and seasons yet either way they are still ‘in my life’ and for that I am grateful.

There are times in our lives when we get so busy and overwhelmed with simply being busy that we forget to pause and simply give thanks.  Thanks for our blessings, our families and our friendships.

So today my #828Blessings story is one of taking a pause for thanks and being grateful for the unexpected friendships and support systems through unexpected sources that God has been so gracious to bless me with.

…What’s Yours?


“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,

to them who are the called according to his purpose.” 

Romans 8:28

Do you have a testimony that you feel could lift someone else from a low place? Or simply a personal praise that may brighten someone else’s day?

In my life I call these my 8:28 Blessings.  [Tweet “The #828Blessings Share Social is a place where we can come together to share our blessings & praise stories.”]
