Thankful Thursday

Blessed be the name of the Lord, blessed be His glorious name. He gives, and takes away. What does He give me? Peace that flows into my life daily like a river, joy, joy, joy, provision for my daily needs, gentle loving care that only He can provide, physical attention better than any human doctor, smiles and much laughter, which is very good and healing for my soul, companionship, He is my dearest friend. I could go on and on listing all of the things He gives to me. What does He take away? He takes away my sorrows, my hurts, my sadness, my pain, my worries, my stress, my doubts, my loneliness, my physical ailments, my insecurities, my fears, and those deep down aches that dwell in my heart. He refreshes, renews, and replenishes me. I will forever say, blessed be His name, His glorious name.
