Thankful Thursday #9

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Sonya is hosting Thankful Thursday again this week. My top 5 are;
  1. I am so thankful that God chooses to speak to me through His Word. A familiar passage re-read can provide inspiration in a totally new way. The Word comes alive to me each time I read it. What a blessing to receive a fresh word from the Word of Life.
  2. I am thankful for my friend Debbie. This week she was diagnosed with Endometrial cancer. When she called to tell me I was so devastated.., and yet she was the picture of perfect peace. She has displayed such faith and trust in God - what a testimony to her King. She is a living example of one who chooses "faith over fear" and I am so thankful for her.
  3. I am thankful for blogging friends who are so much more than just people on my computer screen. Friends who reach out to encourage, love, challenge, teach and share. Friends who are as dear to me as those I see each week. Thank you God for using them to minister and teach me more about You.
  4. I am so thankful that God continues to prove Himself faithful in all areas of our lives. I can see his hand prints and fingerprints on my family, in our finances, all throughout our home. Thank you God for being so visible.
  5. I am so thankful for photos of beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, seashores and sunsets. What beauty! What majesty! Each one draws my heart into worship of the Creator of it all.

How about you? What are you thankful for today?

I am so thankful that we can fellowship with one another like this.

I am so glad that we are forming such close bonds even though we haven't met. You are a precious sister in Christ and I pray many blessings on you.

In Him,
