I'm a few days late with my post, but it was a very busy and tiring week. Thankfully, it's been a great weekend and I now have a little time to post my 22nd Scripture Memory Verse for the year...
Luke 1:50 (The Message)
His mercy flows in wave after wave on those who are in awe before him.
I came across this verse while perusing my Bible's topic index. It's simply stated, yet profound. I need God's mercy on a daily, even hourly, basis. Though marked with moments of victory and wonder, this year has also been incredibly challenging for me in that it's been filled with a great deal of change which has invoked a great deal of stress. I've struggled this year more so than in others. I'm happy that I've managed to make it through thus far, but still find myself wrestling with anxiety and discouragement at times. I'm glad that even though I may not always act or feel my best, that God still sheds His love, mercy, and grace upon me. I'm grateful for that promise and for the fact that He never changes, even when I do. He is AWESOME!
This week is Thanksgiving week! I've continued my 30 Days of Thanks on Facebook - it's been fun to share my blessings - there really is so much to be grateful for and it serves as a good reminder of how amazing life is!
I'm looking forward to only having three days of work this week - it'll be a nice time to spend with my hubby, family, and not have to worry about work stuff for a change. I'm definitely looking forward to the break! And I'll be running the Turkey Trot again this year on Thanksgiving morning so I'm excited for that too! The exercise will give me a good reason to enjoy all that great food!
That's all for now! Happy Thanksgiving! :-)
