What If I Don’t Feel Very Thankful? By Laurie McClure
“Friends, you may have heard the news about our next Online Bible Study, One Thousand Gifts with Ann Voskamp, and feel yourself holding back, maybe hesitating a little, because to be honest… you don’t feel very thankful.
I get it…
This may be a scraping season for you. It is for me, too. I’ve experienced trauma and grief this year like I didn’t know was possible. And, my heart needs this study. Maybe yours does, too.
One Thousand Gifts is especially for those of us who are tired, or hurting, or just don’t feel very grateful right now given our circumstances. We don’t want to miss what God has for us! This study is an invitation to look again, to open our eyes to see God’s goodness where we may not see it right now. It’s a beckoning to wake up, to be strengthened, enlivened, and to allow gratitude to grow even among thorns and thistles.”
After reading this post I am so glad I decided to do this study NOW!
I have been in a season of despair way too long.
