Thankful Thursday



It’s been a while since my last post for Thankful Thursday, not that I don’t have nothing to thank for it’s just that life has been a roller coaster ride for me in the past weeks. As you all know, my husband went to Malaysia initially for ten days mission trip but it became 23 days after much debate, arguments and overseas phone calls. I finally gave in to his extension and somehow I am glad I did.

I am thankful for the test we’ve been trough because of this trip. We both learned a lot and realized a lot of things about us, about our marriage, about God’s leading to us.

I know God did something in Him for this trip and he has become more mature and more sensitive to God’s voice.

While me in my solitude had more time to talk to God, to ponder, to meditate, to cry, to just stare at the ceiling and think.

The mission trip has been hard for both of us but we know in our hearts that our efforts are not in vain.

I am so glad it worked out for you. Things have a way it just take time to find the lesson being taught in it. Big hug.

God can work everything out- bless you for following His call.

I have absolutely no doubt it was very difficult giving up your husband for that long. I'm just as sure the Lord knows that as well. I'm also sure He will abundantly bless you both for your faithfulness and obedience. It may not be in only the ways you might think, but in special little ways unique to you. Have a wonderful day. Blessings, Debbie

I understand how you felt about your husband being gone so long. I don't like my husband being gone at all. Husbands are our protectors of the home. We need them. I know all women don't feel that way. I'm glad you were blessed by your unselfish act. God bless, Doylene

I can imagine how hard it is for you but glad that all work out for the best. God's ways aren't ours but they are certainly with a purpose. Many blessings to you!

Working for the Lord is never in vain. Praise God that it strengthened you rather than broke you. True testament to your faith. Have a blessed weekend!
