We should celebrate Thanksgiving – not because of British pilgrims and native Americans and turkeys and American football – but as a way to lead up to the holiday Christians hold dear to their hearts.
I’ve asked for ‘adventures’ from God, and though this time has been unbelievably challenging and stretching, exhausting and causing me anxiety, breaking me down to such an unfamiliar fragile state, is this an ‘adventure’ He has brought me to?
Being still and knowing He is God is doing just that: it’s trusting in God. He is good. He is faithful. He is trustworthy.
He wants me to be in profound community with Him, resting in confidence in His power and love, and to live in the security of His character.
Knowing who our God is, the One whose image we are fashioned after, is what clarifies who we are at the core.
