Always Thankful by Tara Randel

I was sitting at my computer today, when a nearby Post-it note caught my eye. Many years ago I had written; Commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed. Pro.16:3

I don’t know about you, but when I’m deep into a project, I need a reminder that the Lord is in that project with me. That while I may sit at the computer by myself, His Spirit is by my side. Writing can be a solidity endeavor. I spend a lot of time in my head. Which I don’t mind, I actually do well when I’m alone. It’s when deadlines overlap that I find myself struggling and stress starts to get the better of me. That’s when I have to remember, God gave me this wonderful career, which I am thankful for, and I can always call on Him.

I think every one of us can admit to a time when we felt like the world was out of control and we were just spinning along, unable to stop the ride. Much of 2020 was that way. We’re coming out of much of the fear and anxiety, seeing light at the end of the tunnel. That is the light God provides. He’s been with us through it all, and He’ll continue to do so.

The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1

As I stared looking up scriptures about God’s glorious light, I realized that Spring is right around the corner. A time of new beginnings. Hope. The light remains longer into the evening. All around us, we can draw in the magnificent light of God and never once doubt that he is our Creator and King.

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord. Psalm 89:15

Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. Psalm 97:11

The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. Prov. 4:18

Today, when you look out the window and see your part of the world bathed in his marvelous light, remember, God is with you. I know I do, giving thanks every day.
