Thankful Thursday

Psa 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

Today I want to say I am Thankful for such a Loving and Caring God. A God we can depend on, take our pain and sorrow to and He never turns us away!

Yesterday morning I started my (hopefully) long future plan of walking every morning. (Doc says the heart needs it)!! While I was walking my mile + (Oh on the treadmill by the way), I was talking to God, and I just knew without a doubt He was listening! I felt such a peace and comfort talking to Him and telling Him how much I loved and appreciated Him. Lifting up the needs of family, friends, saints and loved ones. What and Awesome God we serve!

I am thankful for my job, although I can't wait for God to give me a new one. Time to move on! I am thankful that this job is still there for me.

I am thankful for a 3 day holiday weekend that we just had! I got some much needed rest and was able to get things done in the house I usually don't have time to do. Plus read a bit more than usual!! (I love to read)!

I am thankful for my friend Michelle . She doesn't really know just how much she has been a blessing in my life and for my family!! She has taken so much time from her busy life and dropped what she needed to do and been here for us!! I can't even count the many times she, (and her family) have done this for us! God knew what He was doing when He sealed this friendship!! I remember so many years ago when we first started coming to church and our Pastor had all of us go up front and pray. He had Michelle Stand next to me and put her hand on my shoulder and pray with me. From that day forth God did something! He knew what I needed and was going to need in the years to come!! A VERY special friend!!

I am thankful that God is going to bring back our wayward daughter, bring her back to Him, and to us. It has been several years now since she decided to take her own path in life and leave God behind. But I know that I serve a prayer answering God and He said in Luk 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. I believe that God hears our prayers for her and He will bring her back. I am thankful for her walking back in these doors and having a changed heart!!

We serve an awesome God. There is a book, I think the title is Prodigals and those who love them, or something like that by Ruth Bell Graham. Can I keep you in prayer?

God is good, all the time! That reminds me, I need to get on my treadmill today! It is a good place to spend time walking and talking with God!

What a great list you have!

Thanks for the reminder! God Bless!

Neat that you have treadmill at your home so you can walk :) - much safer.

I know that God will answer your prayers for your daughter. He will never let her go.

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

Be blessed today and always.

Blessings to you and yours. I have prodigals, too, but believe that God will restore their hearts. Never give up believing and trusting...
