Five Things I'm Grateful For Today (Because Gratitude Is Important)

1. God's Word. The Bible is filled with so much wisdom and comfort. I can look at it anytime that I want. I can read what Jesus has to say. I can read stories of people who lived so long ago, and yet, who are so much like me. The Bible is something I often take for granted, but it is a way for God to speak to me. And I want to be more grateful for it.

2. My Family. I wouldn't be who I am without them. My ten nieces and nephews mean the world to me. I am grateful for my family.

3. Writing. I enjoy all kinds of writing, and especially novel writing with Emily. It has been a blessing to see No Longer Broken published.

4. My Country. The United States of America is a great place to be. We have freedom here that others do not, and I am grateful for the freedom to pursue my dreams.

5. Food. It's a basic. It's something that I don't think to be grateful for often. But there are people who are hungry, and I am grateful for to have all of the food that I need, and to be able to cook and bake and play around with it, too.

What are you grateful for today?

Cast All Of Your Anxiety On Him

Cast all of your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

All of your anxiety.

Not just some of it. All of it.

God wants us to be fearless.

He wants us to trust in him completely.

He wants us to take his hand and to know that he will see us through.

We need to fear nothing.

We need to worry about tomorrow never.

He will always provide. He will always take care of us.

Over and over again in the Bible God tells us not to worry. Not to stress. But to trust in him.

We need to cast all of our anxiety on him.

We need to leave it up to him to take care of the big and little things in our lives.

He is so much better at taking care of us than we are at taking care of ourselves. We should know that, and we should trust in him at all times and in all ways.

Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7
