Thankful Thursday-Sacrifices


I am so very thankful for the greatest sacrifice ever given, Jesus. He took our place upon that cruel cross, please never forget that. He was sinless, we were the sinners. Thank You Jesus for loving me that much. I am thankful for all the missionaries serving in various places throughout the world. They sacrifice so much, sometimes even their life's, to share the gospel of Jesus to those people who otherwise, would never know our Jesus. I am thankful for pastors, who so faithfully lead their congregations down the road to heaven. I am thankful for all those dedicated military men and women, that put their life's on the line, to keep us safe. I am thankful for my lovebug, who has often made many sacrifices on behalf of my health. Father, please know, that I am more than ready, and very willing, to make sacrifices in my own life, for the sake of Your call upon my life. I would lay down my life for You Father, that is the least I could do, after all the sacrifices You have made for me. I love You Father.

I loved this, "Father, please know, that I am more than ready, and very willing, to make sacrifices in my own life, for the sake of Your call upon my life." Great words! Words I've been saying a lot lately after a time where I was anything but ready and willing.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I added you to my blogroll.

Blessings~
