THANKful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

I love Thankful Thursday and I so appreciate Sonya in her diligence to help us remember to be thankful!

There is so much to be thankful for, I could create a list a mile long.

1. I am so thankful for the birth of Jesus.

“…and she brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS” Matthew 1:25
2. I am thankful for the ministry of Jesus on this earth and the purpose of God who sent Him.

“For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost” Luke 19:10
3. I am thankful that after Jesus was crucified on that cross for our sins, that he was resurrected after 3 days, just as He predicted.

“But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.” Luke 24:2-3

4. I am thankful that because of Jesus, there is a way for us to inherit eternal life.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
5. I am thankful for the promise of His Word, that He will return one day to take us home with Him for eternity.

“He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20

There is so much to Thank HIM for. He has put a love in me that only he could have put there. He has been there for me even when I felt I was alone. Thank you for doing this and for showing my needs to be more vocal with my Thanksgivings to HIM. I have been praying to see HIS face even in the ugliest of situations that life can bring to us.

Thank you again for your prayers

I am extremely thankful for the people He has put in my life. It seems to be someone new (in addition to the already-wonderful friendships I have) for each season of my life, just the right person/people that I need to help me grow.

I am so Thankful for God's Word and all that He does for all of us all the time. We forget to thank Him for the small things, i.e., food, clothes, home, transportation, family,and life itself. We are all so Blessed to live in a country where we can worship the Lord and be free to gather together and study God's Word, Pray and not be fearful.
I thank God every day for Jesus Christ my Saviour and for redeeming my soul!
