This is my first post to Thankful Thursday. I have been struggling with what to write. There ARE SO MANY THINGS. But by far, the #1 thing I am thankful for is that I have peace with God, because of Jesus. Any of the things listed below could be taken away, but nothing can separate me from the love of God. FOR ETERNITY! HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!!?? My prayer is everyone reading this will know about this peace with God. If you don’t, ask Jesus for it right now. He is standing at the door, knocking. Let Him in. You will begin a walk with Him that nothing in this world compares to.
Below is an earlier post (1/29/09) and it pretty much expresses just some of the things I am thankful to God for.
He placed me in my mother’s womb, and then in a very special family, and because of that family, I am who I am.
He sent an amazing man, Al, to be my husband. A man that for that past 40 years has been devoted, committed and shown me what unconditional love is all about.
He gave me 4 amazing children. Amazing daughters and son-in-laws. Four amazing grandchildren.
He has brought such amazing people into my life over the years.
MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, He has given me His salvation.
He gives me this amazing relationship, where He guides me, teaches me, speaks to me, loves me.
He gives me songs.
He gives me stories.
He’s given me an amazing Church, a place where I can be with other men, women and children who are madly in love with Him.
He’s given me an amazing home, and amazing little town on a river to live in and a job I love.
He’s given me His amazing grace.
Yes, Our God is an AMAZING GOD! And I am so thankful for that.
