Well it is again time for Thankful Thursday and I have to say I can't believe how quickly the days go by. Here we are practically to mid March and it seems as if Christmas has barely been put away. I have many things again to be thankful for and I just can't believe how much joy it really does bring into my heart when this day rolls around and I count them up. First of all I am grateful for the answered prayers that have been blessing me recently. The car situation for my son. (see previous post) And then the fact that while it might be a little slower than I would like (I can be soo impatient) I am DEFINITELY starting to feeling better. Thank God for caring Doctors, medicine, and my family who has helped me out. The fact that the Lord (as always) has calmed my anxieties, lifted my spirits and left a peace in my heart. I am so grateful that through the blood of Jesus we DO have power over the enemy. I am grateful that most of the time I feel as good as I do, and I promise I won't be taking that for granted again. I am grateful for praise music which I can turn on and listen to whenever I would like and feel my spirit connect with the Lord, and that then drifts through my mind and spirit long after I have turned it off. I am grateful for all the blogs that I have come to count on for not only my pleasure and enjoyment, but for spiritual learning and growth. As I have been sick these last couple of weeks and forced to sit still, I can't tell you how much it has blessed me to travel around (be it only in the blogsphere) and visit soo many wonderful women. What a true wonder that really is. I would soo love to go through and name each and every blog that blesses me personally and why, haha, but that might take me quite a while as there are soo many of you. But I do want you to know how special you are to me and how much you make my heart glad. I have felt your prayers recently and I am soo grateful for that as well. I am soo grateful that my Melly is coming on the 20th of this month and will be here for a FULL week. YAY...I am grateful that spring is around the corner and with it warm days, cool breezes and soo many flowers to enjoy and look forward to. Yes, everywhere you look you can see the Lord at work blessing His people and filling our lives with His care and love, and how grateful I am. This verse has been soo meaningful to me this week as I have watched the Lord answer prayer in my life.
Phl 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
Because after we do this, we are promised this..
Phl 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
It just doesn't get any better than this...
