Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday!

I am thankful for new relationships!

Loneliness has been a word I've used often since moving.
I've really been struggling...hard.

Before I even moved, 
I spent a great deal of time praying that the Lord would provide great community,
that He would bring new people into my life.
People who could be great friends,
who I could learn and grow from from.

I knew it wasn't going to be easy,
especially given my shy nature and the fact that 
I was leaving behind a solid community of people I love so deeply.
But, I knew I had to give it to God.
I had trust that He had great plans in store.

It hit me this past week just how much
God has been blessing me in this area.

I have meet some truly wonderful people.
They have willingly taken me in and let me be a part of their lives,
and for that I am so thankful.
As I get to spend more time with them,
 I get to see just how crafty the Lord is.
And just how perfect His plan is.

I am learning
and I am being challenged.
But, I am so thankful for the blessings that are coming out of it...
these new relationships.
I can't wait to see what's in store!

What are you thankful for today?
