Thankful Thursday-Security


Hello everyone, my favorite time is here, Thankful Thursday. The theme this week is security. God is my security blanket, I daily wrap up in His secure arms. Without that powerful security, I would be lost in my own insecurities. I have never thought anything good about myself, I find many faults with myself. Praise God for showing me with His love, that I am fine just the way I am. I do not have to be perfect, just me. Throughout my life, I have often been in some perilous situations, but God had me securily in His arms even then. All my life, God has watched over me as a Father watches over His daughter, which was extra special to me, due to the fact that my earthly father wanted nothing to do with me, and was not in my life. Recently, my heavenly Father has blessed me with extra security and happiness. He has brought my earthly father into my life, and we will be going to church together starting this Sunday. Talk about security, sitting in church with two Fathers, that is what I call total heart security.

Dear Denise,
Please don't take this the wrong way, but given the track record with your earthly father, take it slow, don't wrap up too many hopes with him, and then be hurt even worse than before...it's great that he's trying with you again, just be careful. Been there, done that!! Wishing you two only the best. Sounds as if he has found a good woman to go to church with also in a new girlfriend.

Tammy said...

Praise God Denise for your faith and trust in our Heavenly Father. It is good to hear your lovebug is doing better and that you are beginning a relationship with your earthly father.

Cheryl said...

Denise,

Glad to see your Lovebug is better and you as well. Great news!

Thank you my sweet friend for praying for Jan. Once again, our Lord shows us he is at work!

Love,
Cheryl

What a wonderful thing to have your earthly father in your life again. And to share him with your Heavenly Father!

Just wanted to say...I love Keith Greene and while I was reading your post " He put this love in my heart was playing" how fitting!

A Stone Gatherer said...

It's so good to know how God thinks of us! We can be so hard on ourselves and so can life! God is my refuge too! Happy Belated TT!

Shelby said...

The one thing I figured out over the last year is that NO ONE on earth, no matter how much they might love us, is as 100% faithful in our care as our Father above. Even as I go through whatever it is I'm going through, it's such a safe and secure feeling to know that not only is He with me, He is probably carrying me.

God bless you, Denise
