On Thankfulness

For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. (Eph. 1:15-23, ESV)

I am so very thankful for the community of readers and writers here at Chosen Families.  Our experiences may differ, but our God is the same!

I am blessed by the comments I receive on my posts, and particularly by the moving posts of others.  It’s so amazing to me how God has created every family to be unique and how He meets each of us individually in our needs.  Those of you who write and read this blog have been faithful in glorifying God during unusual, wearying circumstances.  What a blessing that we can pray for one another and know that our Father in Heaven hears us.

Writers, your words move me every single time.  I don’t always comment (mostly because I read in a feed reader), but my faith is strengthened.  Readers, your prayers and encouragement are strengthening our faith.

We are a unique community, one I am very proud to be part of.  While I would not have chosen my husband’s brain injury, it has helped greatly to find such a vibrant Christian community of people talking about the challenges, struggles, heartaches, and blessings of hidden disabilities.  I am finding hope in focusing on God and all He has done for us, and all He promises to do for us.  His Word is a blessed refuge.  Thank you for being faithful to share this word in your posts and in your comments!
