Thankful Thursday

I almost skipped this today, but I felt convicted to forge ahead even though I really didn't "feel like" being thankful today. I know that I should always give thanks, especially at those times when I feel the least like doing it. When I start to count my blessings, I realize just how good God is to me and inevitably it lifts my spirits.

  • I am thankful for 13 years of marriage to a wonderful man who not only loves me and our children very much, even when we don't deserve it, but he loves Christ as well.
  • I am thankful that God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son that I may have everlasting life - even though I don't deserve it.
  • I am thankful once again for every time that I hear the words "I love you" from my family.
  • I am thankful for my Christian friends who love Christ and me enough to offer words of encouragement when God puts it on their hearts.
  • I am thankful for soldiers who love their country enough to fight for my freedom.

Thanks for sharing your list of thankfulness. It is sometimes hard to be thankful, but when we don't particularly feel like it, that is when God can work through us and for us. Blessings to you!
