While many of my friends have taken to Facebook to express their thankfulness during this month of Thanksgiving, I have chosen to blog. I find that Facebook limits the emotions I tend to have (and can't contain to a certain number of characters). So, here we go.
Thankful day one.
Today, I am thankful for my faith.
While by no means do I profess to be a perfect person of faith, but I know my heart. And I am ever thankful that God loves me despite the fact that I don't deserve it.
Over the past two years, my faith has been tested. There have been times that I would pray, not knowing if they were heard. There were times when I questioned the very existence of God. But, I can honestly say that being on the other side, I could not have made it without my faith. I know that in those doubting times, that I just needed to be angry. And during those very same times, I continued to pray. I prayed for the healing of my son. Many of those prayers were in the midst of not even knowing what was wrong, but I had faith in healing of it.
And you see, Wyatt's healing has never been about my time. Things don't happen in our time. They happen when they should, in His time. I see Wyatt's healing every single day. I see his progress from that place where I questioned everything. Wyatt continues to amaze me. His healing is visual for me now. I can see how my God is laying his hands upon my baby and healing him, every single day.
While I don't know where tomorrow will take me, what I do know is that I am not alone in that journey. I am not alone in each and every step I take. He is always there, holding my hand and guiding me, even when I don't deserve it. And for that, I am eternally thankful.
