For years I was unhappy with where I was living. I did not want to be there. I was fighting a spiritual battle, between what I wanted and what God wanted for my life.
There were times when the situation weighted so heavily on my heart that it gnawed away at me and I became angry.
Then a few months ago, God opened amazing doors for a new job in a new city an hour away.
I realized during this time that the place I’d been fighting living, had become more of a home than I ever expected or anticipated.
Only once I had left, did I realize how much this town and place had become home.
Often we don’t realize how important a place or person is until they are gone.
We are told to be “thankful in all things.”
This isn’t always easy, especially in trying circumstance. I’ve really struggled with this lesson at times.
However, that is exactly what God wants for us.
What have you been thankful in?
