A Month of Thanks- His Word's Directions

As I sit here tonight, my head is pounding and my throat is hurting. It is hard ,as I sit here feeling bad, to be thankful.....

but tonight - I'm choosing thankfulness. I'm thankful for the comfort that God provides in HIS Word.

I'm thankful for the direction that His Word provides.

It never ceases to amaze me that I read just what I need to hear at the exact time I need to hear it.

Today, God gave me these verses.....
1 Corinthians 8:1-3
But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 2 Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. 3 But whoever loves God is known by God.

Then I read it in the Message......

We sometimes tend to think we know all we need to know to answer these kinds of questions—but sometimes our humble hearts can help us more than our proud minds. We never really know enough until we recognize that God alone knows it all.

That second one - in the Message. It humbled me. I hate when people think they know it all......then I thought of how often I probably come off sounding like I think I know it all.....

SO, tonight -- mostly - I'm thankful for the reminder that I do not know it all.......or at least I am trying to be!

in HIM-
