Thankful Thursday-Victory

This week's theme is Victory..and I want to share this old song I used to sing when I was still young..

Victory I have in Jesus Christ
Forgiveness for He was crucified
Fullness in every part of me
Deliverance His life has set me free
I'm reigning with Him upon the throne
And conquering over satan's power below
Living a life with Christ as Lord and King.

I don't remember the lyrics anymore, I hope I got it right..

But it's very true, we have VICTORY because of JESUS. I know I have been victorious over some trials not because I am strong but it's because I have Jesus. One particular thing I am so thankful I have victory over is my being "nearly addicted to alcohol". When I went back to the Lord and repented, He restored me fully and made me victorious over that. He is so great!!

And for this week, I am also thankful for the following;

* Last Sunday's birthday party of our goddaughter Nicole- we love her so much and we her god parents prepared a small party for her. She was so happy and you can see in her eyes how she enjoyed it. She is now two years old.

* For my Brother in laws birthday party too last Tuesday night - I just praise God that even though we are also in need, we can still be a blessing to others, Having two parties in a row means spending money also (we bought the cake for both of them also) , But It's worth it, seeing them happy and enjoying, it's all worth it.

I can't imagine the loads of food I had too, good thing I am still not resorting to diet pills. Just have to remind my self to do more exercise.

* For the lesson I have learned with regards to married life this week- This one I am really thankful for because I know money can't buy you lessons learned. Life is too short to spend over petty quarrels. I realized that after reading a wife's story who lost her husband eight months after their marriage. And guess what? God send me that email right at the very moment when I was so mad to hubby. God is so AMAZING!!

Anyways, for more thankful hearts visit Lynn of Spiritually unequal marriage. Join us too!

Praise the Lord for the victories He has given you in your life! He is our Great Deliverer! I certainly know that first hand! Thanks for your comment on my Thankful Thursdays post. Yes, godly husbands truly are a great blessing!

Hope you have a great day!

Thanks for reminding us that our victories are BECAUSE of Jesus. I had to smile thinking about how you were mad at your hubby and then got an email that changed your attitude. Isn't it funny how God works sometimes!

You're right - money can't buy lessons learned. We'd take them for granted it if it did! Have a great weekend!
