My birthday post

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

That is my birth verse, and I have tried to emulate it in all of the circumstances that God allows in my life. Today I wrote a birthday post for each of my family members. Today I am home, writing, and the jury is out deliberating on the charges that I have been held to answer for. I answered, defended myself in truth, and prayerfully considered each step of the process. And like my life verse requires, I give thanks in all circumstances, even this.

I give thanks that I know that God allowed this circumstance. I give thanks that it allowed me to rest on my faith, to depend squarely on Him for this and whatever follows. I give thanks that we used the trial and the experience to encourage others. I give thanks for the jury who deliberated carefully and thoroughly, despite their findings. I give thanks for my family who supported me every step of the way and my attorney who faithfully blazed the path. I give thanks for a God who loves me and a bright future! And wherever I am when this posts is published I will be giving thanks in those circumstances.
