Thankful Thursday

He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:3 (NIV)

No matter how many pot holes we face on this journey of life we can be assured that our God walks with us. Giving Him praise in the midst of the storms brings peace and tranquility to our minds. I am thankful today that I can trust God for all things in my life no matter how simple and complex or how huge the problem may be. God is all powerful and all knowing. He can do anything, anywhere at anytime. If you are facing a trial today that seems overwhelming I encourage you to lay it at the feet of Jesus. He is waiting for you to release that burden unto Him. If He cares about the little sparrow who has fallen why wouldn't He care about you and me?

I am thankful today for the incredible friends I have met along life's journey. We need fellowship with one another and encouragement is great for the soul!

I am thankful for the two beautiful grandchildren God has blessed us with. I pray today for Luke who is three years old and broke his arm Saturday evening. Please pray with me that there is no other damage to his arm. He meets with the orthopedic surgeon this afternoon for a permanent cast. For a three year old this can be a traumatizing experience.

I am thankful for God's promises. I know that whatever it is I am facing my God will always be there for me.

I am thankful for my health. I have many irons in the fire all the time and I know if there were any issues physically I would be limited as to what I could do for the Kingdom of God.

I am thankful for the opportunity to teach the mature adult Sunday School class. They are a great group of folks and I appreciate them so much.

I am thankful that my grandmother who celebrated her 93rd birthday last week is doing much better physically. I am also thankful that I was able to visit her a few weeks ago.

I am thankful that God places burdens upon our hearts for certain individuals. I pray that I will always be obedient to that still small voice.

I am thankful for all the ladies I have met in blog world. You will never know what an encouragement you have been to me.
