November of Thanksgiving

Rebecca Stark over at Rebecca Writes is encouraging us to write about what we are thankful for during the month of November.  These articles, from e-mails we send her or posts we write on our own blogs, have links on her blog.

So, what am I thankful for during this November of Thanksgiving?

Where do I begin?

I am grateful that I serve a God who is still mysterious.  I haven't figured Him out yet.  If I had I might lose interest in getting to know Him better.  I'm grateful that the Christian life still has an air of mystery to it.  "Great is the mystery of godliness..." (1 Timothy 3:16)

I'm grateful that "in the ages to come He will show us the exceeding riches of His grace." (Ephesians 2:7)  Until then, when I can't trace His hand, I will trust His heart as Charles Haddon Spurgeon so eloquently stated.  I'm grateful that even though I don't always understand the Father's ways, I know that "as for God, His way is perfect." (Psalm 18:30)

How about you?  What are you thankful for this November day?
