Thankful Thursday

I slept and woke up with a heavy heart, I logged in to facebook and saw this message in one of my friends’ status:

“ When God is trying to move us from one level to the next, we always have to be separated from something that we are strongly attached to. You can't go where you want to go & stay where you are, But keep in mind that whatever GOD is asking you to give up & go thru, He will give you the strength to handle it"

I closed my eyes and thanked Him for the guidance which I prayed for last night.
But still am praying for the courage and the strength. Something came up that could help us financially but still leaving something you're attached to is not easy.

What are you thankful for this week? A new HDTV? Blessings? Trials? whatever it is..share it with us. Laurie is hosting and we will be glad to see you there.

It is never easy to follow the will of God. But, it is always the best path.

Keep in mind also that God will meet you where you are. He won't leave you there, but He's not going to leave you to face the next level alone. He'll be with you =)

God's will sometimes isn't easy - that's what makes Christian living hard. But following His will always will lead to something good. =)

Be blessed!

I know the feeling of having something come up that could be a blessing financualy or it could be a big mistake. Prayer and trust is all we have and I must remember it is all in His hands. Thanks for posting what you saw on your fb and have a blessed week!

Saying a prayer for you this morning as you seek the Lord. I just made a major decision that took months of prayer but I know that God was with me each step of the way. I look forward to following Him more quickly next time because of what He has shown me during this time.

Happy Thankful Thursday!

I agree. It is very difficult to leave the things that we are attached to. But if this opportunity is prepared by God for you, everything will turn out good.

Hi Rocks,

Thanks for sharing with us. It must have been difficult for you but thank God that you are clinging unto Him and growing through this difficult experience. I am praying for you that God will hold you tightly in His arms and provide for all your needs.

I need to read this today. Recently, I am going through a very difficult trial and I am learning to let go and trust that God is working something good out of it. It is most difficult and painful and so I am encouraged by your sharing that God will give me the strength to go through it and He will enable me to grow in Him.

Thanks for your visit and encouragement. It is always so good to hear from you. Take care and have a blessed weekend and Lord's day.

Warm regards,
Nancie
