SELAH band with Paul Tagle

It was their first time and they were bit nervous but all in all it turned out good. Hopefully they'll have more worship sessions coming soon!

Give thanks in all circumstances

My husband spoke at a midweek service last night and his message was about the power of gratitude :) and he quoted 1 Thessalonians 5:18 " give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."

I was reminded of the many things actually endless things that I should be thankful for. Everyday we have reasons to thank God and therefore reasons to praise and worship Him.

After the service-I was immediately put to test. Someone told me about a text that angered me and my very first instinct is to do something but while we were on our way home I decided to just give thanks that at this point in time I am being tested and that my character is being mold thorugh this. And we prayed and thanked the Lord for the circumstances.

Sometimes, when we are not in a so good situation we find it hard to give thanks, but you'll be surprised how the very people that has been affected by the recent flood are still thankful for a lot of things. Bless their heart.

Last night, we were also taught to give thanks in advance for the things that we pray and hope for. In a way declaring that we will soon receive the answer to those prayer.

of course I gave thanks for the gift of parenthood, for the daughter or the son that He will be giving us soon. I know in my heart that we will become parents soon. I don't know how but I know we will in no time :) I am excited! and recently I've been browsing online stores that sells baby stuff again, you know those cloth diapers that are so cute and the lullaby earth crib mattress . I even thank God for the baby shower my friends would give me someday..hahaha!!

This sounds crazy but that's my hope and faith :)
