I read 2 Samuel 22:47 the other day and just reading those words and the power and excitement they hold made me read the rest of the chapter and I could just feel David's conviction of what he was writing. Wow! Our God is all powerful and only does what is best for us on HIS timetable. I can call on HIM anytime of the day for ANYTHING and He will answer me...but I must remember it is what HE thinks is best and when HE thinks it's best and that may mean not the answer I was looking for. I tend to call on God when things aren't quite going my way and I hit panic mode. But I need to be thankful for those times too, they help me become more what God wants me to be, those hard times are molding me. I also need to remember to be thankful for just the everyday blessings. Waking up to a loving husband, 2 beautiful, healthy boys, a roof over my head, food in my cabinets, family that I know are praying for me daily, phone calls just when I needed to hear a friends voice, just anything that I'm given and don't deserve. Being a parent now I am learning and trying to be better at remembering to thank God for things, whether things are going good or bad at the moment. I love it when Nathan says, "Thanks" without any promting from me or Danny. It just melts my heart to hear him ask for something and then hear "Tanks" (thanks)... it came from his heart. He wanted to say it. How God must feel when I, as one of His children, stop and say, "Tanks".
