Being Thankful: A November Mood Board

When November rolls around, everyone starts to remember and make lists of what they’re most thankful for. I love to see those, from the smallest things to the biggest things people are thankful for in their lives. This last week has made me long for those thankful posts on social media. It’s heart-breaking to see what’s been going on in our country in response to our new President-elect. One thing I keep at the forefront of my mind is, God is good, all the time. I’m holding that mantra especially close as we go into the next few months. I have great hope. This isn’t to be a political post, but a human post. I pray that each one of you keep your inspirations close, your eyes bright, and your hearts open. Remember we’re all in this together no matter which side you’re on. With that said, here are the things that are inspiring me, keeping me motivated, and keeping my mind creatively active. I’d love to know what all of you are inspired by! What are some of your daily mantras? 

Psalms 61:2

This has been one of my favorite verses for quite some time. I use to read this as “when my heart is overwhelmed (in a negative way) lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Only recently have I realized, this means whether my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude, sadness, worry, or joy- lead me to the rock that is higher than I! So many times in my happy moments I forget to give my joys to God, I thank Him, sure, but do I ever just sit and tell him the things I’m excited about? The things that make me happy? For He has made me in HIS image, and it would only make sense the same things that make my heart happy, would please His heart as well. I want to be diligent in letting Him know when my heart is overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness, for the Lord wants a relationship with us, a friendship. 

I hope you find many things to be thankful and joyous for today!
