One Thousand Gifts January 5, 2012

“Giving thanks for one thousand things is ultimately an invitation to slow time down with weight of full attention. In this space of time and sphere, I am attentive, aware, accepting the whole of the moment, weighing it down with me all here.”

  1. God continually uses Andrew to teach me of His kind of love…persistent, faithful, true.

    Yesterday our Pastor spoke on prayer and the ministry of the Word. I was so convicted for taking for granted my time with the Lord each morning. Most of the time I end up putting it off till right before I go to sleep, and that was not working at all. If I am honest I was not being thankful for my time I get to spend each day with God, and forgetting about the many people who would love to have a chance to dive into the words our Savior wants to share with us. I was quite humbled at my complete failure and ingratitude of what I have before me. So I am thankful for the Word and beauty of God’s desire to spend time with me on a daily basis.

    “This crazy-dare gift list—” (p.46)

    1. teachers that share God things that seem all but forgotten
    2. extended downpour reprieves on a dark road home

    I continually take for granted my health and ability to get up and go running any time I want. It is small and trivial in the whole scheme of things, but that is the crazy thing about God. He wants us to find joy in the small and trivial things, because those small things are sometimes the very things that draw us closer to Him. So I’m thankful for a long run on a warm, spring day.
