Thankful Thursday


Today’s thankful Thursday theme is FREEDOM. And I want to share with you my list for this week;

1. I am thankful I am Free to worship and praise my God anytime and anywhere I want. I had a missionary friend in China and I know how hard it is for them because they cannot worship aloud. They cannot sing their praises to the Lord in the public.

2. I am grateful that I am free to LOVE. We live in the mission’s house that we call “Center” and there are several missionaries living there too. Sometimes things get tough with us and relationships are affected. I am thankful God has showed us the real meaning of love and gives us the freedom to love everyone.

FOR OTHER STUFF I AM THANKFUL FOR:

1. Thank God for the new found joy in serving Him.

2. I am thankful for my oldest nephew who’s graduating from elementary school tomorrow. I remember how he and his mom nearly died when he was about to come to this world and now he’s so big and he loves to serve the Lord too. I am so proud of him.

3. Last week was a tough week for me and hubby. This week is a lighter one and I praise God for that.

4. Praise God I have my voice back now. Lost it last Sunday, I was forced to take a rest and glad it is back to normal now.

I really found your post humbling. I often let my mind forget that there are other believers in this world who must hide, who cannot openly read their bible, nor worship out loud. Thank you for your post and sharing your heart. Have a wonderful TT.

Thanks for the great reminder of our freedom to worship--it's easy to take for granted, and so many people in the world don't have that.

I am often so incredibly thankful for your #1, too. One of the pastors in my church was arrested in China during one of his trips there. Praise God it was a temporary detention and all that happened was deportation but it really does drive home the freedom we have here and the blessing it is. Praise God, too, for the return of your voice - always love the "rest" God forces on us on occasion. Be blessed!

Thanks fro sharing this post. Yes, that's true, there are still countries that it's hard to praise God publicly.
God bless your heart.

Have a wonderful day.
