theGoodlife, and being thankful all this month. And it's been fun! Head over there to see what everybody is thankful for.
Tonight I was at Youth Group, and one of the questions I asked my small group of girls was "when was a time you responded to a 'nudge' from God?"
After they shared, I shared with them about this student I have had some difficulties with in the past. I told them about how one day I was working with that class, and I thought to myself that I needed to really give him a new chance every day. That every day is a new beginning, and so I should grant him a new beginning each day.
And then God spoke to me, like he leaned down an audibly said in my ear "Like I do for you."
He does, you know. Every day, God looks on me and give me another chance, another do-over, a brand new day. He never holds stuff against me. He never holds a grudge. He never looks at me and sees the stuff that I've done wrong in the past.
And that's what I need to do for this student.
So this is what I'm thankful for today: that God still speaks to me.
And that I have ears to listen.
