Thankful Tuesday

Today is Thankful Tuesday.

I have so much to be thankful to God for today, my husband, my baby girls, the time I got to spend with family last week and much much more....

But today I thankful and overwhelmed at the support we have received....

I know not everyone agrees with the choice we made to come forward and that's ok, but I am thankful for every last encouraging word people have spoken to me in one way or another. 

I am thankful for all the women who have written and shared their stories. To me, it is such a picture of how the body of Christ comes together...

I am such an imperfect and flawed individual but I am thankful that the God I serve is neither of these and that He has made it His mission never to give up on me.

I am thankful.

[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]

Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. Phil 3:10, 12

And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you. Phil 1:6
