Thankful Thursday


I am quite excited for this Thankful Thursday post because this is my first for this year and I hope I won’t miss any for this year. And to start with

1. I am thankful for God’s word ALWAYS assuring us that HIS PLANS FOR US is always the BEST. I thank God that I can always come to HIS WORD when I need support, comfort or peace. The last quarter of 2008 has been very rough for me and my husband but I thanked GOD because HE KEEPS US STRONG.

2. I thank God for giving us new direction for this year. Whatever and wherever that direction maybe I know He will be with us. I know in my heart He is bringing us close to what our purpose is. Our first trip outside the country this coming February to attend a Regional Mission’s Conference is a clear indication that indeed HE is giving us new direction.

3. I thank God for the HEALTH of our whole family, hubby’s side and me. My dad is turning 72 years old tomorrow and he’s healthy and strong. Praise God for that.

My list can go on and on but over all I am just thankful for what the Lord has given me, for my life, for my job, for my hubby, for the opportunities to SERVE HIM, for friends and for provisions. For more thankful souls visit Iris site.

“Oh give thanks unto the LORD for HE is good! For His mercy endures forever.”
1 Chronicles 16:34

You'll love Thankful Thursday posts as you go....they're great for reflecting and helping you to bring to mind what you've been blessed with rather than what you've not.
