We Are His

Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth! Worship the LORD with gladness.  Come before him, singing with joy.  Acknowledge that the LORD is God!  He made us, and we are his.  We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.  Psalm 100: 1-3

Happy Thankful Thursday!

I tend to be a bit of a control freak.  It is something that I continually must keep surrendering and asking for grace on.  I am mostly a control freak when it comes to our boys…with the health issues that have loomed in the past I want to control everything about their surroundings.  With them starting kindergarten next week… I have been a bit of a mess.

HOWEVER, I am not in control, God is. 

And this week I am so incredible thankful that He made us, and we are his.  That means that our boys are also his and this fills me with so much confidence to start this new journey with them.  He made them and they are his first.

When I asked Carter what he was thankful for this week he said:

  • drawing
  • his kitty
  • the camper
  • his new watch and new shoes for school

Qwade added:

  • having a mom and dad!!

I am so thankful for these two…

da boys

I am so thankful that God chose us to be their parents.  I am thankful I have gotten to spend the better part of almost six years home with them.  I am thankful that they continue to grow and mature.

If you are in a place of tug-a-war, struggling in or with a relationship, or having trouble relinquishing control, I just want to encourage you – you are not alone!  I believe we all struggle at times with control, but the best thing to do is to STOP and give it to the One who is in control.

Let’ praise him today for who he is and that we are his people!

What are you thankful for today?!

Blessings,

The Johnstons
