Thankful Thursday: In not Of

Just quick post to express gratitude for the truth.

I am in this world and thankfully not of it and that gives me reason to be grateful.
A couple of years ago I fell headlong into a state of depression.
Most of it fuelled by the wicked nature of what this world was dishing out. Not only to me, but also to the innocent and helpless.
Life was not fair. It still isn’t.

But I am grateful that I have  received a new hope for a new life where justice reigns. 

This world is not my home. I’m just passing through. While I do, I am thankful for the strength and wisdom this journey affords me.
Thankful that while I am in it I am not of it.

So doing, I strive to embrace each challenge because it brings me closer to my hometown and my Abba
