Thankful Thursday


Hello to all of my sweet sisters out there in blog land. Another Thankful Thursday is here, time to give God a great big round of applause. I know so many of you are dealing with some heartaches, stress, major life changes, health problems, death of a loved one, etc. But, God is still God. He is with you through the storms, and the sunshine. Please do not give up, hang onto the precious hem of His garment, He will bring you through the valley, and set you back up on the mountain. I am thankful for:1) God helping me this week, as I remembered my mommas passing away 2 years ago. 2) The prayer time that my sister and I have shared this week on the telephone, we were ringing up our dear Lord together!! 3) My husbands blood pressure is under control, praise God. 4) God helping me to deal with my health&hair problems. 5) Knowing that God loves me, just as I am. 6) The wonderful book studies that I am doing online. 7) Snuggle time with my lovebug, I love him more everyday. 8) God helping us financially. 9) Gods grace that He pours out on me daily. 10) All the sweet ladies that participate on Thankful Thursday, blessings to you all.

isn't God awesome? if He can do these things, i mean what He did for me this week, He can surely intervene in my marriage situation... He's showing me that He can do much more. praise God!

financial help... i can very well relate to that! oh God, He sent an angel to bless me with money, enough to pay my bills. God is good!

lori said...

Our pastor makes the kids at church yell out..."GOD IS GOOD..." and they say "ALL THE TIME!"

I tell you...knowing HE has control makes all the difference....you remain in my daily prayers!
hugs,

God has certainly seen my family and I through some storms, and we are continuing to depend on Him, while pressing on in this journey!

You are right, Denise. No matter what we experience in life - God is still God and in control. Some days my heart breaks, but I know that He heals it. He is my comforter in good times and bad.
I am so glad that you and your sister were able to pray together over the phone. May our Lord continue to bless your relationship.

Thank you so much for sharing faithfully your grateful heat with us every week.

Be blessed today and always...

Praying with your sister over the telephone sounds like such a special time.
