Thankful Thursday #13

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Don't you just love Thursdays? I look forward each week to joining Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey for Thankful Thursday. Here are my five:
  1. Thank You God for leaving your hand prints all over our lives. You continue to amaze me as I see things happen that could only be accomplished by you. Beth Moore has said, "Our part is to believe God. His part is to be God and do what is ultimately and eternally best". Thank you for being God in my life!
  2. Thank You God for the promises in your Word. It's been said there is one promise for every day of the year. As I glance through the list, I am overwhelmed by your love for me. Thank God for being faithful to your Word.
  3. Thank You God for leading me to a Church where I can belong. Looking for a Church can be so discouraging. But when you find the right place, it's home. Thank you God for leading me by your Spirit.
  4. Thank You God for returning laughter to my life. More than any time in recent days I have been keenly aware of laughter in our home. Oh how I love to laugh with the ones that I love. Thank You God for the joy and laughter you have given.
  5. Thank You God for providing for our every need. Although I list this one often, I don't ever want to take for granted the basic necessities and beyond that you supply. Thank You God that providing is not just what you do, but Provider is who you are!

How about you? What are you thankful for this week?

I love how as you list each thing you're thankful for, you thank God for it!

Yes, middle school stinks! It wasn't fun for me as a student, and it's not fun for me as a parent!

This is a great list of thankfulness! God's handprints in our lives - He's all over us-watching and caring and loving us.

Thanks for stopping by my place:) Come by anytime.

Happy TT!

Thank you, Lisa, for the reminders of His promises. I especially love the picture of His handprints all over our lives. I, too, can see them everywhere. Too bad I don't always have my eyes open! : ) But they are still there!
May your day be blessed.

This is so true! What a great way to put it! Thank You for your reminders to be thankful. Sometimes I get stuck in a negative mindset, but really we have all been blessed so much. If I could just learn to be content with that! God is good and He loves us! Blessings, Jenny

Hi Lisa,
Thank you for your prayers for our revival!

I loved that you're thankful for laughter. Isn't it just the best to stand back and hear "hearty laughter" coming from your loved ones? PTL!!!
I hope our grown kids look back and realize, "We laughed alot." Some peoples are filled with anger and yelling instead.
