Thankful Thursday #15

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing to you and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
Psalm 30:11-12

I love Thankful Thursdays! Although I have not been wailing or wearing itchy sackcloth, my heart is singing and cannot be silent.

Thank You God for unexpected blessings. God blessed us with a new TV that cost us nothing. After years of holding an American Express card I decided to see how many points I had and what I could get (just for fun). A new 26" HD TV was delivered yesterday. Thank You God!

Thank You God for adding to that blessing. The picture was not as clear as I hoped. So I called about upgrading our satellite receiver. It was going to cost me. So I called a competitor and I upgraded, added another room and for the first 6 months my bill is cut in half from what I'm paying now and after that I will still save $17 a month. Thank You God!

Thank You God for giving me a great 3 day weekend. I stayed close to home but I just really enjoyed myself. We cooked out. We spent time together. We had a good day at church and visiting with friends. Thank You God!

Thank You God for Christian Authors who teach truth. God has used great teachers like Beth Moore, Kay Arthur and Jill Briscoe to fill my heart and my mind with the Word of God. They teach and write with integrity and honor. Bless them today Lord!

Thank You God for meeting my every need. I just can't praise Him enough for all that He has done, all that He is doing today, and all that He will do in my future. My life is in the palm of His hand and I trust Him to fulfill His purpose. Thank You God!

How about you? What are you thankful for?

I have recently started a "grateful journal." Nothing goes in it except praise and thanks. What a blessing to recount all the good things God has done. I'm so thankful for my Christian heritage, my family and my new creative endeavor from God the Creator.
