Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that God chose me, that He forgives me, that He loves me, and that He continues to lead me and protect me.

I am thankful for our new evening Home group that encourages me and gives me the opportunity to encourage.

I am thankful for learning about other people and cultures in bloggy world. It opens up the world to me in ways that I never dreamed of before.

I’m thankful to be able to pray for people all over the world.

I am thankful that Jesus laid down His life for me and brought me out of darkness into His light.

I am thankful that God fills me with joy!

I Thessalonians 5: 23-24 ~ “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.”

  1. Oh – the Scripture is so wonderful 🙂 – but then again all Scripture is.

    You know – I was just thinking the same thing visiting blogs tonight – I have ‘met’ so many beautiful women – God-fearing women over the past year – it gives me goosebumps thinking of how many women share their faith in bloggy-land – awesome!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

    Blessings to you and yours.
