Thankful Thursday

Everyone lift your hands to the sky, and give  our Lord Jesus, all the praise that He so much deserves. I will never be able to thank Him enough for all His precious blessings to me, but I truly intend to try. Thank You Lord Jesus for carrying me through all the mini strokes that I had this year, I had no idea that I was having them, but You knew, and You kept me safe. Thank You Lord Jesus for being with me on Labor Day, when I had a big stroke. I could not even walk, but You carried me. Thank You Lord Jesus for being by my side as I lay in the intensive care unit of the hospital for ten days, the Doctors did not know if I was going to live or die. My blood pressure was extremely high, and my brain was swelling.  You were right there, being my true Physician as always, my amazing Healer. You continually poured Your strength into my weakening body. Thank You Lord Jesus for being right by my side as they moved me to a rehab hospital. You were there the entire ten days, You never left my side, You were my partner, as I learned to walk again, dress myself, use the bathroom, take a shower, all the little day to day things that we all tend to take for granted. I love You way beyond measure Lord Jesus.  I was so sad, and very scared after the stroke, not knowing what my future held, but You calmed all of my fears, and turned my sadness into happiness. As always, I may not know what my future holds, but I am very thankful Lord Jesus to know Who holds my future. My future lays very peacefully in Your loving, caring, compassionate, healing hands Lord Jesus.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.
